My life, while containing a huge question mark in one way, has been rich with blessings which provide me with the assurance of my Savior’s love and fill me with hope in Him.
For some time now, as some of you know, I’ve been praying and prayed for in the need for provision and my desire to be His minister in a new vocation which He clearly has prepared for me. His timing is not our own yet we know it is perfect. Many times it has been revealed to me in my own spirit from HIm and through others praying for me that a new door will be opening. I believe that as we grow in Him and surrender to His will we find many new doors along the way as we grow ready for more and more work . . . I am excited to serve in the ways He leads me. Yes, fear comes but with His hand holding me, I can walk in fear and not be held back by it.
As I stood in my dining room the other day, I saw the doors to my sunroom and thought of them in a new way. Yes, it did remind me of the “door” or “doors” the Lord is leading me to and through, but also of a puzzle to be solved. We’ve all seen those puzzles in which we are to count how many squares we see . . . well as we follow Christ, the puzzle pieces that are our life come together in beautiful ways as we are blessed to serve Him.
Now, a puzzle for you. No, I’m not asking you to count the “squares” as those familiar puzzles ask. I’m asking you to count the crosses! When our Lord died on the cross, we were awarded Eternal live. The doors to Eternity with Him were flung open! So, ponder that and look at these doors. How many crosses do you see?
