Today God has been speaking to me about opportunities and closed doors. More specifically that every opportunity opens one door and closes another.
A friend of mine teaches in many of his courses “Everything you say yes to means saying no to something else.”
Since I cannot be omnipresent this just makes sense. I can’t do everything. But again, walking through one door means I have to leave behind a lot of what I had in the last place I found myself. The hoarder inside of me says this is bad, but God tells me “everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life.” MA 19:29
So I am changing, giving up what I must in order to attain the promises God has put deep inside of my heart. I know any pain I may experience in the closing of doors will be swallowed up in the great joy of knowing Christ.
What doors must you close to pursue the burning yes God has given you?
