When one door closes, another opens; But we often look so long and so regretfully upon the close door that we do not see the one that has opened for us. – Alexander Graham Bell
God says, “I will give him the key to the house of David – the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.” – Isaiah 22:22
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
God’s Word says, “I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phillippians 3:13-14
“When you figure out “Time is Your Life”, you’ll figure out how to “Make the Most of It.“
Sometimes life has a way of pushing us into directions we weren’t planning to go. We’re all so busy moving forward sometimes we lookup and we’ve marched into an unexpected place, like helping a neighbor rescue a stray cat from a tree yet, you’re afraid of heights. Other days we may be asked to march into someone’s situation when they’ve lost a loved one.
Everyday, life’s tug-a-wars offers us “moments to march” into places of we would normally never go. Injustice, someone’s pain or a simple feline rescue, are God’s way of offering us opportunity help others heal monsterous messes.
We must march toward people not away from them. We must march toward people and their needs. When we march into relationships and situations where love and restoration are needed, heaven begins to shrink the distance between despair and a richer life.
