“I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved…” Today let the words of John 10:9 give you comfort along the way.
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.
Doors and gates are such a part of our lives, and yet we never really think about how we pass through them. Today, think of how holy, simple, and beautiful this image is: Jesus as a door.
