When one door closes….

When one door closes

Life is life.

There’s no blueprint, map or crystal ball,

Only your choice of who’ll you bring with you through it all.

There’s no telling sometimes of what life poses-

how when one door opens another one closes.

Or is that backwards?

Life is life.

When one door closes another one opens-

It may not’ve been the one you placed all your hope in.

You may not’ve known that a door was even there.

It may have been only in God’s watchful stare.

Life is life.

Forward or back-

Which way do I go?

Which door do I go through?

How am I to know?!?!

The choice of which door, or even walking through it, matters much less-

Than the choice of who you brought with you on each of life’s quests

Today I choose a life not wrought from my own desires, or my own plans-

But instead ask God to put my life in his own hands.

Life is Life.

It’s a fact so simple, so truthful and so well known!

But so many people miss the part of never, ever having to go through it……
