One Doorknob

I've been spinning a bit this week.  I've got a lot of writing to do in a very little amount of time.  If it all turns out, then the opportunities are amazing.  If it doesn't, well, I don't even want to think about it. 

I love to write.  I've written since I can remember.  But the diversity of things I'm writing on right now has me muddled and not feeling on top of my game (women in leadership, marriage, parenting, and self-worth - ack!).  My mom came over today while the kids were napping and shared a passage she read and thought of me.  It is from David Jeremiah's book entitled Signs of Life that ironically I gave her as a present years ago.  His words stopped me cold:

Friend, you don't have to worry about how or when or where the next door in your life will open.  The doors God opens for you only have doorknobs on one side...His!  So you can be sure that the true, holy, and powerful One will open for you the right door at the right time.  Th knob is in His hands.  The door may involve your job, where you live, your education, a partner in marriage, or an opportunity for ministry.  Don't limit God!

I found, in those words, my drive again.  My forward motion.  The reason I'm doing all this.  I'm being called to something.  It may be very small on an Earthly scale.  It may be very grand on an Earthly scale.  It may take some completely unexpected form.  But whatever the calling turns out to be, it's going to be magnificent on a Heavenly scale if I will just follow Him where He leads.  He will open the right doors at the right time.  So back to work.
