When God shows you the door, walk through it…
We do not work in our own time. God has an appointed time for everything and that is not up to us to decide. When he opens a door, even if you are afraid, walk through knowing that the same God who brought you to the door, will take you through the door.
On a Personal Note – Hello/Goodbye
Life is this series of simultaneous hellos and goodbyes. As I’ve embraced seasons of newness, it’s often bittersweet. There’s an inherent grieving process as I head into fresh beginnings.

God hears our heart
When we are low on words or feel like God is distant, we must remember God will even hear our faintest cries and he will come to our rescue. Take assurance in the fact that God will never leave you, nor forsake you and as his child, you have direct access to him even when you feel unheard.
So often we are spiritually burned out. We don’t bring things to God because we don’t feel like we are good enough Christians or we feel that the issue is too minor to worry our big God with. Because of this, we end up spiritually tired.

Christian meditation is a practice that has been used for centuries to deepen one’s relationship with God.
