Opening Doors

Today, seeing a brother struggle to make sense of a world that is not his by choice, I was reminded again that faith is something quite complex.  It is not just belief or working righteousness or praying or being a good human being.

It is also accepting.  Taking the hard blows.  Right in your stomach. And NOT punch back.  Not even dodging the next punch.

Faith is when you need to close some doors on this earth.  Because only when some doors are closed here are those above opened for us.

  1. So beautifully put!

    I was thinking of something along the same lines a couple of days back - part of growing up is when you ACCEPT that some things are beyond your control - no matter how bad you want them not to be the way they are.
