On the Other Side

In this case, the grass definitely is greener on the other side of the fence. 🙂

But seriously, how many times do I miss God’s blessing because I am too afraid/lazy/stuck in a rut to open a door?

Being stuck on one side of the gate is safer, predictable, controllable.

If I walk through to the other side, embrace an adventure of any sort, I am risking a stray sheep gone rogue, or ankle turning in a bog, or a sudden fog to engulf me.

Or, it could be the greatest adventure ever, with beauty and wonder and newness. A day to see new things the Lord has made. A day to trust Him whatever the outcome.

If God is calling you to a gate, maybe He wants you to open it.

‘So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” – John 10:7-11

Blessings always, Lisa
