The Forbidden Doorway

Not every open doorway should be explored. Too often we fail to recognize the difference between can we and should we. The old saying is that “God doesn’t close one door without opening another.” I’ve found this to be true but I’ve also learned that Satan also opens doors. Sometimes it takes a lot of prayers to figure out which is which. And, always trust that gut feeling that tells you that something doesn’t seem right. Especially when you can’t see what waits in the shadows just beyond the threshold.

About tonight’s Feature image. Up until recently I thought this abandoned building was a train station but I have learned that it’s actually an abandoned bowling alley. We live at the northernmost range where Kudzu can grow. Every summer the kudzu completely swallows not just the building and every winter it all but vanishes.

      1. I remember my cousin told me about a Muslim who got a warning about a job because they were dabbling in criminal activities, he spoke up and got fired and then the authorities sacked the company. Iโ€™ve been getting visions from a young age (too scary for me). God works in mysterious ways and sometimes we are outright told and warned in dreams. Best believe that it is for our own good no matter how much of a loss it might seem at the time. This is a lovely reminder to keep faith.

  1. Youโ€™re right, Lloyd. Itโ€™s sometimes confusing whether it was God or Satan who opened the door for us. But just like what you said, weโ€™ve got to listen to our hearts and follow our gut feeling, for God speaks through our hearts โ™ฅ๏ธ
