We are taught that we must be proactive. We must be willing to be courageous. We must create our own destiny. We must take whatever steps are necessary to succeed. And all these things are true. The thing is when I’m doing all those things with my own power the outcomes do not always have a happy ending. Whose teachings am I getting my mindset from? Whose strength am I building my courage? Whose promises am I depending on for my destiny? And whose steps am I following?
I have found and I am being reminded, “a door is never closed
that a more beautiful one is not opened when I allow Jesus to open it”. I praise Him daily for always showing me His mercy and love.
Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love.
