The Door Is Open ( It is never Closed)

Updated on April 15, 2013

I just told a lie...

I just lost my temper.

I deceived a friend...

Yes! I am in trouble..


You think I am a rotten wretch?

You said, "You are a mess!"

I failed here and there.

I disappointed you and me!


What have I done?

I am never doing as much as I feel I should.

I haven't lived up to my own standard of what I feel is right.

All my action is displeasing....Sigh!


I have a weakness...you and me.

We have gotten by with a few things...but it is not enough trying.

No hope in our own self...in our own strength.

We are not yet all that God wants us to be....

Far from it!


And so, we flee ... to the only refuge we knew,

Where we are safe ... and where hope awaits

Where we constantly stumble ... we stand strong and still.

And even in our present imperfection, never pushed us away.


We are not what we were...we are what we are...

By the grace of God...never left us hanging.

The one who is in the world cannot bar the door.

But the One who is in us NEVER closed the door,

It is widely open and welcoming....

And He holds the Key!


That put a smile in me.

      Thank you Grace, The grace and mercy of God is always given to us to acknowledge His forgiveness. We messed up, we get in trouble yet God has always a ready forgiveness.

      Glad you like this, and I appreciate you.

      Thank you my Beautiful Ms Dora,

      You are so right. Those areas where are so weak, He made us strong. The real "us" in Him is perfect, He aims to bring up the best in us and lift up the real us by grace.

      God is truly amazing to put words into our mouth to share and say through His Spirit. I got the photo on Godly Woman Daily site.
