Big Doors, Big Blessings!

While watching the cooking show “Chopped” on the cooking channel the other evening. One of the contestants that lost earlier in the round had confidently stated he was a Christian and he had faith that God was going to get him to the winner spot. He must have stated he was a Christian a zillion times, which became a little annoying. I mean, I can totally appreciate someone confessing their love for the Lord, but not in away where they are beating people over the head with it. Jesus didn’t force himself on anyone, you were either down with him and what he had to offer you, or you weren’t, simple as that.

We all know the saying “When one door closes, another door opens” don’t we? Well, those were the final words of that contestant after he lost. Every new phase of life is about walking up to locked doors. Some doors are poorly made, with locks that are easy to pick and abracadabra the door is easily opened. Other doors are very big and very well constructed, with these big locks that can’t be opened without a key. Yet, even if you have a key, the big door can steal be hard to open. You have to really push a little harder, and then once you get it open you have to be very careful that the door doesn’t slam shut before you get in.

Difficulties serve as the doors you have to go through. The doors are not there to keep you out. They are there to prepare you for what you will encounter on the other side. On the other side are the things you have been looking for, waiting for, and asking for. On the other side of the door are all the things you have been prepared to have by opening all of the other doors. You shouldn’t care that you may have to kick, push or knock down the door. Why? Because you have the keys: faith, confidence and prayer. The only thing you have to remember is that big doors with heavy-duty locks are usually used to protect valuable things!

  1. Hi Cheryl! I love this blog post! The last paragraph had me wanting to save your words as affirmations for myself. “Difficulties serve as the doors you have to go through. The doors are not there to keep you out. They are there to prepare you for what you will encounter on the other side-” yes, so true! What a refreshing way to look at the old adage, “when one door closes, another one opens.” Your last line, “The only thing you have to remember is that big doors with heavy-duty locks are usually used to protect valuable things!” is everything! And, you’re right about how we already have the keys, if we would just use them, the doors would open up with much less resistance and struggle. Thank you for writing a beautiful post that speaks to all of us.
    Highest blessings to you,
    Kim
