N.B. I did not write the following piece but, for the same reason I named this post "DOORS," I am posting it here for you. Was blown over by the clarity of an issue that often vexes me and perhaps even sabotages "right" choices. Door #1? Door #2 or Door #3 ?

How many times have you NOT KNOWN which way to go, chosen a way so you can go yet, remained uncertain even while there was ease and unusual favor during the inevitable road blocks of your journey? We all have been there; facing uncertainty but knowing God wanted us to step out of the boat. 

"Where to?" we so frequently ask, all the while, tiptoeing on that rough water.

This has been my experience causing me to fret and wring my hands, convinced I didn't properly identify the door God had opened for me. This article just assuaged all that accumulated anxiety. That one open door IS God's answer.

A good friend recently reminded me to not let perfect be the enemy of good. And so I exhort you, let the door currently open to you, although it doesn't appear to be the perfect answer, be God's faithful answer to your faithful prayer.

Read on. You will love this...

David cared for them with pure motives; he led them with skill. Ps 78:72

When you are doubtful as to your course, submit your judgment absolutely to the Spirit of God, and ask Him to shut against you every door but the right one…Meanwhile keep on as you are, and consider the absence of indication to be the indication of God’s will that you are on His track…As you go down the long corridor, you will find that He has preceded you, and locked many doors which you would fain have entered; but be sure that beyond these there is one which He has left unlocked. Open it and enter, and you will find yourself face to face with a bend of the river of opportunity, broader and deeper than anything you had dared to imagine in your sunniest dreams. Launch forth upon it; it conducts to the open sea.

God guides us, often by circumstances. At one moment the way may seem utterly blocked; and then shortly afterward some trivial incident occurs, which might not seem much to others, but which to the keen eye of faith speaks volumes. Sometimes these things are repeated in various ways, in answer to prayer. They are not haphazard results of chance, but the opening up of circumstances in the direction in which we would walk. And they begin to multiply as we advance toward our goal, just as the lights do as we near a populous town, when darting through the land by night express.
—F. B. Meyer

If you go to Him to be guided, He will guide you; but He will not comfort your distrust or half-trust of Him by showing you the chart of all His purposes concerning you. He will show you only into a way where, if you go cheerfully and trustfully forward, He will show you on still farthcr.
—Horace Bushnell
