Can You See the Window?

How many of us keep our eyes on the door?  We wait for it to open so that we can step into the next part of our journey.  The open door calls us into a new adventure; a hope for rejuvenation.  If only that door would open, we would gladly respond, but it stays locked.  It will not budge.  In its place is left frustration and disappointment.

We remain so fixated on the door that we fail to see the open window on the other side of the room.  It is the gateway to what we can be, but we are not aware the window is even there.  We are missing incredible opportunities because the door gets in our way.  There must be a way that we can look past what we expect and embrace what can be.

Today I am grateful that we are not limited to a door, but endless possibilities in which we can step into the light of hope and love.  God’s path does not always lead us into what is expected, but encourages us to journey through unexpected possibilities.  We are called to journey, no matter where the path may lead.  Wherever we are led, Holy Light will be there to guide us through the darkest of places.

Praise be to our God, who guides us on the journey.  May we remember that windows can sometimes lead us to great adventures that may never be found through a door.  We must be willing to look around the room to discover the possibilities.  Let us take the leap in faith to discover the sacred riches.  Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory in Christ, our Lord.
