I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.

Today the word prompt is … Open.

I continue to be amazed at how God can intersect a book I am reading, prayers on my heart and a one word prompt. Only God. That’s all I am saying.

I’ve been praying for open doors for a while now. Each day we have opportunities before us – people we meet, places we go, the tasks we do – all of which present opportunities to us.

I so desire to know which are the opportunities God has placed in my life – –

I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close.  (Revelation 3:8, NLT)

I have been reading this verse all week. From this verse, we see God opens and closes doors. He both gives us opportunities and He closes opportunities. As we walk through those open doors, the very ones He opens for us, we will find ourselves positioned to have our story intersect with God’s greater story.

The open door presents limitless opportunities to each of us every day. It is the place, the moment even, where we do something worthwhile that will have impact for all eternity. It is those times where we find purpose and feel our worth before God.

The thing about that door is >> He has already opened it. It is an open door before me which I must walk through or enter.

I have tended to think the door God opens has to present something big. And I am discovering those doors He opens? Well, they are often disguised as small for when we do the small, it is then He makes something big.

I so am praying for eyes to see the open door each day.

*And yes, these thoughts were prompted by my reading this week of “All The Place To Go” by John Ortberg. A wonderful book which I will review shortly.


Today I am joining … Five Minute Friday and Fellowship Friday and Everyday Jesus and Faith Filled Friday and Dance With Jesus and Blessing Counters .
