Knocking At the Door Again


Doors are such a big part of our lives and yet we never really think about how we pass through them. Think about how holy, simple, and beautiful these words of Jesus are: “I am the door. Whoever enters through me will be saved…” (John 10:9).


God, this morning I’m struck by my words to you:
how they’re the same today as yesterday.
And the day before that.
Why do I need so much help? It’s constant!
Even when my life has no crisis, I cannot do it alone.
Today I ask for the acceptance of how much help I need.
I need the humility, the understanding, that my prayers are knocks,
and your welcoming door keeps opening.


Today let the image of Jesus as the door give you comfort along the way.
