He’s been showing up around me a lot lately, probably because I’ve been showin mah azz and being so undisciplined.  I’ve basically been doing whatever I want to lately.  I really didn’t care, as long as I wanted it I’d get it and not worry about the rest.  I love it when God comes to me in little ways that make me think hmm?  It gives me inspiration that somebody’s still watching over me regardless of my sinister ways.  🙂 

 

I got this random email today.  When I tried to reply the email came back undeliverable.  Interesting….hopefully you can get something out of this just as I did.   Today I am thankful.

 

“We need to learn to thank the Lord for closed doors just as much as we do for open doors. The reason God closes doors is because He has not prepared anything over there for us. If he didn’t close the wrong door we would never find our way to the right door. Even when we don’t realize it, God directs our paths through the closing and opening of doors. When one door closes, it forces us to change our course. Another door closes; it forces us to change our course yet again. Then finally, we find the open door and walk right into our blessing. But instead of praising God for the closed door (which kept us out of trouble), we get upset because we “judge by the appearances.” And in our own arrogance, or ignorance, we insist that we know what is right. We have a very present help in the time of need who is always standing guard. Because He walks ahead of us, He can see trouble down the road and HE sets up road blocks and detours accordingly. But through our lack of wisdom we try to tear down the roadblocks or push aside the detour signs. Then the minute we get into trouble, we start crying “Lord how could this happen to me?” We have got to realize that the closed door was a blessing. Didn’t He say that “No good thing will He withhold from them that love Him?” If you get terminated from your job – don’t be down, instead thank God for the new opportunities that will manifest themselves – it might be a better job, or an opportunity to go to school. If that man or woman won’t return your call – it might not be them, it might be the Lord setting up a roadblock (just let it go).”

 

I say I know but in reality I don’t know much at all.

THIS.IS.FABULOUS!!! I was telling my friends about my life and how all these doors were closing. At first I was distraught but then after a word from my mother(“all these doors are closing because a wall is about to be knocked down”) and realizing all the beautiful blessings the Lord is bestowing on me, I can’t wait for what God has for me! it’s an awesome feeling to have God.
