The placement of doors

I was recently talking with a good friend of mine about "God's plan" for the two of us and which doors he is going to place before us. Both of us have had grief strike us in different ways the last few years, her losing her husband and me with my Glory babies. God works in wonderful, but very mysterious ways. He is always placing doors in front of us...some we choose for ourselves with the free will he gives us...others are just a factor of this broken world we live in. Some doors are full of celebration, others are full of sorrow and grief. Earlier this week my friend joked...I have already had door #1...I am ready for door #2...and we laughed...oh, so true my heart felt the same way!!! I was thinking, now what do I do...where do I go from "HERE"...what is your plan for me..wanting to "move" to the next door he is ready to give me.

I always envision God standing to the side of a big red velvet stage curtain saying " child not can't can't see ALL of my plan for you. Not until you are with me will you see the whole story...the play is still being written for you".

He always has a great way of placing friends and our conversations to "subtly" remind me of his promises and faithfulness.

Thank you, as always, for sharing your insights. Sometimes it's easy to settle into the flow of life and daily routine and not even think about the bigger picture and which doors I might be going through - like you said, by choice, or just as a result of the world we live in. And other times, those doors loom ahead and you know, without a doubt, you are stepping across the threshold into something different. Thanks for this today - I needed it!
