Open Doors

by Macy Johnson

“Ask and it will be given to you;

seek and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened to you.”

(Matthew 7:7 NIV)


I took my seat at the large table for the quarterly meeting of the Friends of Greene County Library. I visited with the Vice President and prepared to take minutes as the new Secretary when a member sat down next to me. I met Kim at a previous library function many months ago. She laid down a copy of one of my God Sightings books, pointed to the picture on the back cover, and excitedly asked, “Is this you?” “Yes,” I replied. “I want to talk with you after the meeting,” she whispered.


Kim had a story to tell and wanted it published. When I gave our librarian copies of my books I hoped it would open doors for me to help others in their writing journeys. God brought Kim to me.


After the library meeting I drove to my church to get the choir music ready for rehearsal that night. As a newbie music librarian, I wanted to make sure everything was set out and ready. My first stop was to retrieve bulletins in the work room.


As I headed out the office door the church administrator stopped me. “Can we talk?” she asked. A volunteer had recently vacated a much needed position in the life of the congregation. “Would you be willing to serve?” I was asked. Another open door.


I must be available for what I feel God wants me to do. His Spirit guides me in all I was created for. My heavenly Father provides perfect opportunities to make an eternal impact.


I will step through all the doors my Lord opens for me and seek His guidance and glory. I hope you will, too!
