WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES..........

In this life we all have experienced missed opportunities,misfortunes and injustices. We may have lost a job, a friend a loved one and even experienced the lost chance at romance and this may have led us to feel betrayed, alone, hurt, frustrated or discouraged depressed and dispirited. But have you ever thought to be thankful for your lost opportunities? Have you ever expressed gratitude in the face of loss?

Closed doors for each of us are the opportunities to move forward in our lives. They are the universe’s way of telling us to move on from a situation that does not serve our highest good and The Creators purpose for you.
As one door closes another one opens but there may be a brief time in between the doors when you are meant to reflect or learn from your old door before you can be ready to step into the opening of a new one. This is a time of preparation and peace within yourself, don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened for in every experience there is a lesson to be learned. When one door closes another opens but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said than regretting not doing what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I'd just been myself. Learn to have patience with all things but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them for every day begins a new task for you to challenge for happiness is when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony.

Hold on to your dreams and never let them go. Show the rest of the world how wonderful, unique and special you are by giving your circumstances a chance and others the benefit of the doubt. Take the time to wish on a star that shines in your sky. Take on your problems one by one and work things out and let loose of the sparkle and spirit that you sometimes try to hide within yourself. Stay in touch with those who touch your life, heart and spirit. Always look on the bright side and don't let adversity keep you from winning....be yourself because you are filled with special qualities that have brought you this far and will always see you through - Keep your spirits up, and make your heart happy and let it reflect on everything you do and every word your speak.

Your three best treatments are faith time and patience and make Love your Religion daily! God is the dream maker revealed through the dreams. When God closes a door somewhere He opens a window, for God will bless you with new beginnings if you open your heart to it. God is always moving.....He is not stagnant so we must be constantly moving with Him according to His will and plan for each one of our lives individually.

Yes, many of us have had recent doors being closed where we have had to walk away from some people that were only supposed to have been in our lives for a season but we kept hanging on to them way pass the season's ending. So we find ourselves in the "in between" phase where the door has closed behind us but we are anticipating the door in front of us to open at the right time and we have to know in our hearts concerning some of those issues the timing is not yet ready because we are still learning growing and becoming a whole before we can give of ourselves to anyone in a healthy, loving, positive way. We have to learn to stay encouraged and uplifted. God is working it all out for your good as long as you trust Him and believe. You didn't loose anything because God promised ALL his children that he will recompense and give you double for your trouble and remember Job lost everything but God restored him to a place of abundance where he had more than what he initially started out with.

Look at it as it is a test to see where your faith and trust is, and He does that to all of us because He wants to know if we are there for His presence or His presents before He will release all that He has in store for us. You can do all things through Him who strengthens you. Experience is not what happens to you it is what you do with what happens to you. When you feel like giving up remember why you held on for so long in the first place. Instead of giving yourself reasons why you can'tI give yourself reasons why you can for God knows your heart and he know your desires. I know sometimes we appear to be failing but often it's an avenue to lean on God to guide you thorough the process of passing whatever it is you need assistance with. You'll pass keep the faith. Perhaps we quit on certain battles without realizing that we're just days,hours,or minutes away from victory.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer never give up then for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed so when you come to the end of your rope tie a knot and hang on......

When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must but don't you quit.

When one door closes another one opens bringing opportunities and adventure beyond our wildest imagination. When faced with that locked door take a deep breath give a prayer of thanks and prepare for the miracle that will become your life.

I prayed that you would remember even in the midst of difficult times it is important to take care of yourself and fill your life with things that bring you happiness. I prayed that you would remember when one door closes another one opens and that you would have the strength and courage for whatever may come with change. I prayed that you would remember God promised to always be near and that He will not leave you to face life's challenges alone. I prayed that you would remember all of these things and to know that you will always have a friend in me.

From My Heart 2 Yours
Be Foreverly Blessed, Happy, Loved and At Peace
