When God Shuts a Door


I shared with you about God maneuvering a situation where I had to move.

The news was a complete surprise and I left no stone unturned in attempting to discover the unexpected story that led to this set of unusual circumstances. A set of circumstances my rental agent and her business partner had not seen in their more than forty years of combined business in the industry.

Each door I knocked on and attempted to push open was closed firmly and tightly in my face. There was no doubt in my mind as I prepared to move that God had firmly shut this door.

But even through this trial he whispered peace and blessings in my heart.  He promises that he has something even better for me.

At the moment I don’t know what that is, but he does.

Jesus said, “Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search and you will find. Continue to knock and the door will be opened.”  {Matthew 7:7-8}

In The Sound of Music, Maria quotes the Reverend Mother “when God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window”.

The Lord has closed one door in my life, but I know he will open another.

What doors have God closed and opened in your life?
