Allowing God to open and close the doors of our lives is the only way to move forward. Life is not something dead, set in a bottle, displayed on God’s mantelpiece, no, life is much bigger than that. Life is set in God and God is actively taking part in it, as He has chosen! We can and may therefore choose to live our lives within Him, making Him part of absolutely everything we do.
Time is probably our greatest limitation when it comes to sharing life with one-another, but time is also a gift from God. We should be able to see and recognise God everywhere and in everything. When this is not so, it is TIME to return to the cross. To the place where time stand still and the brutality of the cross’ message of love, peace, mercy and grace is shouted out echoing again through the rooms and hallways of our lives. It is then and only then that living this life comes into perspective…
for in Him we live and move and have our being, … , ‘For we are also His offspring.’
(Acts 17:28 NKJV).
