                                  WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR OWN ROOM, BE

                                            KIND TO THOSE WHO HAVE CHOSEN

                                            DIFFERENT  DOORS AND TO THOSE STILL IN

                                             THE HALLWAY”

                                                                                                          C.S. LEWIS


For most of my adult life I have been a creature of habit, not much of a risk taker. Change made me feel unsettled. I stayed put as did some of my dreams. I was the one who watched others “knock on different doors” and “enter their own room”.

But now I have found  “my own room”.  It is the room God had waiting for me to enter into. I have put my personal touch to the room. It’s not like any others. It is uniquely my own!

Remembering how I felt all those years ago has given me an understanding of others who speak of not knowing what “door” to try or feeling, they too, are just “standing in the hallway.” I am now the person who says, “ Go for it, give it a try!”

I tell them how I used to be and, yes, was a little envious of others who had the confidence that I did not. I tell them I was my own obstacle.

If you are at a season in your life where things have fallen in place, share your knowledge and expertise to encourage another to pursue their dream or passion.

“Ask, and you will receive. Seek and you will find. Knock, and it

will be opened to you. For the one who asks, receives. The one

 who seeks, finds. The one who knocks, enters…..Matthew 7:7,8



   “Thus says the Lord:  Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,

    nor the strong man glory in his strength,

    nor the rich man glory in his riches;

    But rather, let him who glories, glory in this,

    that in his prudence he knows me,

    Knows that I, the Lord, bring about kindness,

    justice and uprightness on earth;

    For with such am I pleased, says the Lord.”……Jeremiah 9:22,23
