“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
There is a door that has been opened for you. A door full of new possibilities. A door that could lead the way to the fulfillment of your dreams.
But such a door has been waiting for some time now, and it may be waiting in vain. It waits in vain for as long as you continue to look at doors that has long been closed for you. Doors that would no longer lead anywhere. Doors that would only bring tears and broken dreams.
When doors are shut, they are shut for a reason. And when they can no longer be opened, we must look elsewhere where there is still a way.
A door has been opened for you somewhere. You can wait in vain looking at that closed door or you can turn around and start looking for that open door where you can enter in.
“…the LORD, who makes a way in the sea,
and a path in the mighty waters says:
“Don’t remember the former things,
and don’t consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing.
It springs out now.
Don’t you know it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert. “
-Isaiah 43:16,18-19, WEB-BE
“When they had gone through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. When they had come opposite Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit didn’t allow them. Passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul in the night. There was a man of Macedonia standing, begging him, and saying, ‘Come over into Macedonia and help us.’ When he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go out to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the Good News to them.” – Acts 16:6-10, WEB
