Day 7: An Open Door


My LIFE is an open BOOK.

And at times, maybe that is not a good thing,

as I wear my HEART on my shoulder.

I feel like a little girl at times,

with such a

simple FAITH

who

so wants what GOD wants,

but that gets me in trouble.

I get closed out of some lives, yet welcomed in to others.

This isn't a pity party moment, as it is a REALITY check

to ask GOD to take me deeper into my HEART

to see if there is anything that

I am doing or not doing

that causes the great

DIVIDE

in relationships.

Why ask GOD?

Because HE KNOWS me way better than I KNOW myself,

for HE CREATED me & for HE CREATED you,

so why not go to the

ONE who KNOWS~

"Search me, O GOD, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends YOU, and lead me along the path of everlasting life" 

(Psalm 139:23-24).

Oh to be so vulnerable with

 GOD

is the sweet spot of FAITH,

for when you enter into

HIS PRESENCE

there is no FEAR

because

"Perfect LOVE drives out FEAR..." (I John 4:18).

HIS PERFECT LOVE

birthed in

JESUS who GAVE up HIS LIFE

for EVERYONE'S LIFE, 

and HE means EVERYONE.

The best of the best, the worse of the worse, and the mediocre.

For we ALL fall short of PERFECTION

yet in need of PERFECTION,

of HIS PERFECTION

who welcomes ALL~

"I am the DOOR; anyone who enters through ME will be saved

[and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely],

 and find pasture (spiritual security)" (John 10:9)

and

IMMEDIATELY there is a trade off.

My bad for HIS GOOD~

"Forgive me LORD, for I do not know what I do, but YOU do".

And then you hear HIS WORDS that are like a big

WELCOME HOME SIGN~

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock.

 If anyone hears MY voice and opens the door,

 I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with ME"

(Revelation 3:20).

And who can enter?

ANYONE who OPENS the door.

Even little 'ole me and little 'ole you and little 'ole anyone.

For GOD who KNOWS our HEARTS way better than we KNOW ourselves,

WELCOMES ALL.

So as I sit here in the dark of the morning,

thinking about closed DOORS in my life

and asking GOD to

"Search me, O GOD, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends YOU, and lead me along the path of everlasting life" 

(Psalm 139:23-24),

what else is left for me to do,

but to

 listen to HIS gentle voice

that I have invited into HIS heart that is planted inside of me,

the moment I OPENED the door

to HIS SON,

as I continue to

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

 in all your ways submit to HIM, and HE will make your paths straight"

(Proverbs 3:5-6).

So, my HEART that I wear on my shoulder

is not my HEART,

for on this morning I invite

GOD in

to

"SEARCH ME..."

as

"I GIVE YOU MY HEART"
