A time of transition is always difficult. After Jesus’ resurrection, he appeared and disappeared a few times, and then was gone for good. All the disciples knew was that they were supposed to go to Jerusalem later on to celebrate Pentecost. But there was all that time in between. What do you do in that time in between?
My cousin wrote these words:
“In January of 1998 I was struggling in every way possible you could imagine. Financially, physically, emotionally but most of all spiritually. Life had broken me. I was 28 years old and had been a single Mom for 4 years. I was lost. I talked to someone back then that I trusted and she told me this:
‘Friend, I want you to pray this prayer every night before you close your eyes. But before I tell you this prayer you need to know that once you start praying it, things will begin to happen so fast in your life that it may scare you. But don’t be afraid. The prayer is “God open the doors in my life that need to be opened and close the doors in my Life that need to be closed.’
Then she said, but I’m gonna warn you, doors won’t just close they will slam shut, and when they do, know it’s for your good, God will show you the open doors, just be brave enough to walk through them. Trust God, God knows what you can’t know.”
So for those of you who are in between what is and what could be, try praying this prayer and see what happens.
