Inhale courage, exhale fear. Trust the next chapter because you know The Author. 

I love this beautiful door, color and all the leaves around it. It reminds me of the multiple shut and open doors I encountered and the lessons learned. “I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.” Revelations 3:8. Are you disappointed because a door has closed in your life? Did you expect something to come to pass only to discover that it didn’t, and now you’re feeling let down? Is there more work to be done everywhere you look? But yet it seems like you are accomplishing nothing. “When will things work out for me?” you ask yourself during a low moment of the day. Discouraged, disheartened and stuck in a rut, it is sometimes tough to see beyond the closed door. Waiting for God to move mightily in your life is difficult, especially when your desires have not yet been met. It is tempting to give up at the first, second or even the third closed door. But God expects us to persevere until the right open door is made known to us. So, “Do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded.” (Hebrews 10:35) A closed door doesn’t mean that it’s over for you. Contrarily, it means that God is getting you ready for something bigger, better, and far greater than before. You have come too far to back down and quit. For God is saying to you today, “Don’t let closed doors bother you. Keep on moving forward. Where you are now is only temporary, it is not where you are going to remain.” God is giving you all that you need to accomplish His best plan for your life. God will use everything that you’ve gone through to move you closer to His good plan. Just as God used Goliath to strengthen David, He will use your closed doors to strengthen and advance you. Thus, have faith and trust God, for He is at work in the lives of His people. No matter what you are facing, don’t give up. Try again, reach higher, think bigger, pray bolder. I remember 5 years ago walking in a dark season of my life followed my a job lost among other heartaches and pain but end the end God blessed me with something better. ” Just because one door closed doesn’t mean God doesn’t have another one open. Stop weeping over what God has rejected. – Bishop Jakes. God is in the business of opening and shutting doors. Pray that He will make His will clear for you, too.  – Flore 🌷💕🌿
