"God is a God of open doors. He loves opening doors for us. But, sometimes God closes a door on us. We may have wanted it so bad that we stand there banging on it - begging Him to open it up. We have to realize that He closed it for a reason and may not ever open it back up....or He may open it up at another time when we're ready. We don't know. But, we do know that He has a reason, and if He's closed it for good, it means He has something even greater in store for us. So, turn around, and walk away, because God's got your back. He always has and always will. When God closes a door, that means he's up to something."
I wrote this a few months back when I was really struggling to figure out why certain things happened the way they did last year. I'm still not 100% why, and may not ever find out, but I'm glad I'm where I am now and am excited to see where God leads me next!
When the mural is not close to being finished the night before the closing ceremony, you go after dark to work on it more. [This room will be used for pre-schoolers when we'redone!] Go team!
