Were you born in a barn?

I often hear that when God closes a door he opens another for us. I do believe that is partially true.  I think it goes more like this;

God opens doors for us and sometimes he closes them for us but not always. Sometimes we must be the one to close those doors.

Lots of times God has opened new doors for me. He has given me new opportunities and showed me new paths to take and for the most part I have taken those chances and gone where he has wanted me to go. However being the “you never know” type of person that I am, I don’t always close the door behind me. I usually leave those old doors open just in case. Just in case I want to go back to my old ways or maybe some day take that wrong path.

I can hear my father now saying; Where you born in a barn? Shut that door. And I know that my biological father meant it in a literal sense but maybe that was God, my eternal Father meaning it in another way. Maybe that was God saying; I will show you the way but don’t go back. Just some thoughts running through my mind today.


Have a great day,

  1. Love this. I think I leave a lot of doors opened that need to be shut and duct taped closed ;)
