My little dog teaches me daily – how to wait.
His life so closely parallels mine. Just like me his life has a regular routine.
He asks to go outside to roam around, sniff the world, observe life, stretch out in a little ray of sun.
Just like me - from time to time I find the door shuts on my routine:
Then he decides he wants to come back in the house. So he goes and stands by the door.Sometimes the door doesn't open right away.
Why does he go to the door, sit, look in, and patiently wait?
He trusts I will open the door. He knows from past experiences the door will open. He has learned --- I take care of him. It is my responsibility. All he needs to do, is to be ready to walk through the door when it opens.
Are you waiting for something important to happen in your life? Maybe you have been waiting for a long time and you are about to give up. Are the circumstances around your wait about to crush you?
Jesus said, “ I am the way…”
From one who waits, let me encourage you- step up to the DOOR, the DOOR called Jesus. Draw near to Him, there is no better place to wait.
At just the right time the door will open!
