TITLE: A Door of Possibility

Evermore the dreamer, I often ponder what the future will hold. Each new year stands before me as a door just beckoning my entry. Standing there with its beautiful craftsmanship and its polished hardware, it calls to me to pass through and embrace all the possibilities my salvation has purchased. The glow from the brilliance of Christís glory seen through the beveled glass draws me closer.
God gives His invitation, ďVickey, will you cross the threshold into the life Christ has purchased for you?Ē I donít know about you, but for me that is both the most exhilarating and most terrifying question I wrestle with each year.
It is exciting because I am a dreamer. I dream big. I dream of writing books or plays. I dream of doing great ministry and changing my world. I dream of being a vessel of change in one personís life. But, actually walking through that door scares me to death.
I am terrified to leave the place of comfort I have nestled out for myself. Iím scared of people and situations I donít know or canít control. What if I fall? What if I didnít hear God clearly? What if what He calls me to involves my suffering? What if the people He assigns me to are annoying? All of these questions are not only possibilities but they are probabilities. So whatís a dreamer like me to do? Trust and walk through.
I must trust that God will never leave me or forsake me. I must trust that He provides all the talent, ability, resources and strength I will need to accomplish my task. I must trust that nothing will come to me that has not passed through His fingers first. I must trust that all I accomplish or endure has been designed to make me more like Christ and to allow Him to live and love through me.
The same door of possibility awaits each of you. Will you enter and embrace your dream God has given you? Will you stand there dreaming of what might have been content only to admire its beauty? Will you tell everyone about the door and never walk through it yourself?
May this be the year we decide to enter.
