Were you challenged to open the door in yesterday’s post? Did you open it? I hope so. (if not, read)
The craziest thing about those doors we are to open is that we really don’t know what’s on the other side of them, until we are on the other side. For example, maybe you have a goal, resolution, or nudging to start writing this year. You don’t know why, you just know you are suppose to write.
You stand at the door or sit with your journal. You question and ask why. You ask, write about what? But then you decide. You remembered you had dedicated that nudge to the Lord, so you open the door. Then you step through that door very hesitantly at first, which grows to sporadically daily. Your unsure steps soon ignite the habit of writing and you become more passionate about it. Soon a common theme comes pouring out of your writings. Those themes develop into a book and out of nowhere, while you are still new to this door, another door opens for you to publish your works.
That’s an example, and true life story, of what happens when we dare to open those doors that we had so longed just stood beside. Friend, that is how my first book Dirty Laundry Secrets ~ a Journey to Meet the Launderer came to be. (click the link for info) An open door, then just one small step a day. I had no idea what was on the other side — speaking, teaching, mentoring.
I can not urge you enough to open that door. It’s the 12th of January and there are some still some of us standing on this side of that door and that goal was scribbled down January 1st. So right now, 12 days later, open the door and take a peak.
Remember, you’ll never know what’s on the other side until you are on the other side!
