Open Door...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed a song that has been resonating inside me, for a very long time, now. 

Honey, Won't You Open That Door is the name of the song. 

If you haven't yet read yesterday's LwL entry, you may want to do so.  This way, you'll have a better understanding of what I am discussing, today.

The lyrics of the song itself, seems to refer to a relationship between the person knocking at the door, and the person inside the living space.

How that can relate to me, is absolutely unknown to me.  After all, I do not have anyone in my life.  There's no man knocking on my door, wanting a relationship with me.

So, how could I be the person looking to answer a door to someone in this manner?  Only God knows.

After thinking and praying, I began to wonder if possibly God has this song living inside me, because I need to open the door to some other situation.

He knows that I would like to be able to organize Christian conferences, or tent-revivals, or something along those lines.  It is part of my heart's desire to be able to have people attend, with unsaved friends, so that seeds for Christ can not only be planted, but also that God can water them.  And hopefully, we would be able to reap the rewards of our work for Him.

But, knowing my health hasn't been good enough to do this sort of thing, makes me wonder if I'm not correct in thinking this is the door He wants me to open.  If it was, He would have made a way for me to be able to do so, in many aspects of my life.

Then, I began to wonder if He wants me to do something I've been thinking about doing. 

I have a certificate that I obtained prior to me teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), in the past.  As I've been recovering from my last, and most major surgery, I've thought about possibly leaving Canada for a while, and going somewhere where I can teach ESL.

Once again, I must say that I find it difficult to think that this is what He wants me to open the door to, at this moment.  After all, I am still not yet healed well enough to do much, in a physical sense.

After thinking about these issues for a while now, I began praying.  I asked God to provide for me.  To lead me, and give me wisdom.

This reminded me, of Psalm 25:5, "Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day."

Knowing I am His child, He leads me in His truth.  For He is the God of my salvation.  And yes, I do wait upon Him, all the day long.

Life isn't easy.  It's not kind.  And, it can be rather difficult and heartbreaking.

However, our God loves us.

When I refer to our God, I am referring to my God who loves His children.  Are you a child of His?

Have you ever come to Christ, asking for salvation?  Have you repented of your sin?

If not, I would suggest you do so, today.  Tomorrow, may be too late.

Until next time...
