If God Closes A Door

If God Closes A Door

If God closes a door He has a different way to go ,

Out there in the future someday He will let you know.

The path that He has chosen will be the best for you .

When you stay close to Him you'll find this is true.


It may not be what you wanted to ease an aching heart,

It may not piece together what has now been torn apart.

But the path God has chosen, has been chosen with care.

It will give you peace and satisfaction,not a deep despair.


All your friends and loved ones will help you in any way

To bridge that span between here and a better someday.

God needs to give no reason,His decision is always right.

He can give you sunshine no matter how dark the night,


If God closes one door He has something better in store

You may not believe it but I have seen it happen before.

After all in my life I have been through to this I can attest

God uses tender mercy for He really does know best !

There are times that we want something so badly

That we feel like we should be blessed but God

knows what is best for us ,and at times we do not

agree with it , Then we may realize that God

was right all along and we just have to say ,

"Thank you , Lord . for giving me what I needed ",

And you see the suffering that you had avoided.

No this is not about me but a dear friend of mine.

There was heartbreak there for awhile but in time

it; was obvious that God does always know best !

Very lovely and True , I love it you couldn't have said it better. Sometimes we want something so much it burns our heart, but the burning sometimes is God telling us from within that ain't good for you my child I'll bless you with something better.

If only we can come to that realization and let go and let God's anointing flow.

Hi Clara,

His decision is always right, He has chosen with care, He knows best.

This is so true Clara. And all we have to do, is hear and trust and obey and all will be as intended by our Lord God Almighty. Amen.

Praise God that He puts His song in you.

I agree with LadyFiddler's comment. Sometimes we want things so bad that we are not willing to wait. I truly know in my heart that the way a lot of things turned out in my life (in good ways), is because God knew what he wanted for. All of trials that I was faced with were tests for the good that was to come. He has truly blessed me in ways that I never imagined possible. He knew and continues to always know what's best for me and he provides.

Hi Karen , Thanks for your comment. always glad to hear from you .I wrote this some years ago when a good friend was having a lot of trouble.It came true , there was something better for the ones concerned. God always knows best if we will just listen. sometimes that is the trouble ,we just don't listen and then we suffer through our own disobedience. love,Clara

Hello Alwaysamber,I enjoyed your comment and appreciated the truth that God does have something better for us if we just wait for Him. So many times we don't wait on the Lord and then we find ourselves in trouble. Often we have to go back to Him and beg for forgiveness. He will forgive us but it would have been so much better to have listened to Him in the first place,. God really does know what is best for us. Clara

Thanks , Lady Fiddler,Most of my writings are poems ,too, I do have a very few things that I have penned but poetry has always been what I do the most of and love it , I wrote my first poem when I was 8 and I wish I had kept it. I think it has the longest sentences in history BUT they rhymed, and I never thought I would be writing on here with poems going to so many countries. We never know! Clara

This is my favorite line. "But the path God has chosen, has been chosen with care." Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece of inspiration.

This is beautifully written! I think we have all seen this in our own lives or in the lives of others. God is so good and He definitely knows what's best. Thanks be to our Father in heaven!

Hi Friend, Yes , God always does know best, but unfortunately we don't always recognize until sometimes it is too late,we had better keep our ears tuned to that little voice that will never steer us wrong.Thanks for your comment, love, Clara
