Open the Door

This persistent little guy and a few of his friends persuaded me to share my bear claw. It made me think of how I ask God for things.

I haven’t always received the answers I wanted, in the way I wanted, or when I wanted. But every time I have asked, looked, and knocked, I have found Him. I hope that doesn’t sound like a greeting card. I truly mean it. When I stop focusing on the problem, and look for Jesus in every difficult thing I face, I find Him—His presence, His grace, rest, wisdom, joy, and love. From there I can see, accept, and live in the answers to the questions.

Keep asking. Don’t stop seeking. And when you hear Him knocking, open the door.
