Doors!!!

Have you ever noticed HOW MANY different kinds of doors there are???
 Tyler and I took a ton of pictures of cool doors while we were in France.  I've been meaning to make a collage of all the pictures.  Haven't gotten around to it yet.  :
There's doors that have to be PUSHED to be opened, there's doors that you have to PULL to open. There's sliding doors, there's car doors, there's revolving doors, there's glass doors, there's screen doors and there's automatic doors, there's locked doors and I'm SURE, many more!!!
.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A DOOR???
A door is a moving structure used to block off, and yet still allow access to something, an entrance to a place, yet a closure to a place within an enclosed space, such as a building, room, closet or vehicle.
.
In life, there are MANY doors that we will walk through and some that we will SEE, but NEVER walk through. The question IS, HOW do we know if a door is meant for us to walk through or NOT???
.
So often you will hear and probably even say at some point, "I'm JUST waiting for GOD to open the door before making a decision." AND while this is good to a certain extent, SOMETIMES, we're waiting for God to open a door that says PUSH or PULL on it!!!
.
Sometimes, the door has a LOCK and only God can unlock it but there are other times that the door has a lock and GOD has given us THE KEY and now it us up to us to take that key and unlock the door. Sometimes we have to KNOCK and WAIT for God to open the door, And YET there are other times, when God locks a door and it will NEVER BE UNLOCKED!!!
.
Sometimes, there's a revolving door, and God wants us to go through something before we can get to what is on the other side. Sometimes you just gotta shut the door for a little bit, while your riding to your destination and THEN its time to open that door again! Sometimes there's sliding doors and you gotta figure out if you should SLIDE that door all the way open, or if you should just partially slide it open to not let anything IN or OUT with you.
.
Sometimes there's a glass door and you can see very clearly what is on the other side and weather or not you should open that door! Sometimes there's a screen door, and you can only kind of see what is on the other side, but you'll never really know, TILL YOU OPEN THE DOOR!!!
.
Sometimes in life, there are automatic doors. There are things in our life that are just automatic. They just happen without us trying or doing anything for them to open. Church, school, family, those were automatic doors for me that just happened without trying. Waking up and going to sleep are just automatic doors. And you'll find blessings that come to you in life, that were just automatic without you doing or saying anything to have ever gotten them!!!
.
There are automatic things that God expects us to do. I remember hearing someone once say that they kept bumping into someone, they didn't know what God wanted to do, but they just wanted to pray about if they should witness to them or not. Bishop Abbott spoke up, WELL, I can tell you what God wants to do for that person, HE WANTS TO SAVE THEM!!! Sometimes we over-spiritualize the OBVIOUS or THE AUTOMATIC!!! Should you witness??? YES!!! The Bible says that God is NOT willing that ANY should perish, BUT that ALL should come to repentance! Should you repent??? Should you obey God's word??? It's an AUTOMATIC DOOR!!! YES, you should!!!
.
As a female, sometimes, its good for us to be a lady, WAIT and let a man OPEN THE DOOR FOR US, but sometimes, you can't always wait around for someone to be opening the doors for you.
.
I've seen AZ females, usually in the dating or newlywed stage of life, SIT IN THE CAR after reaching a destination, in 120 degree weather and NO AC, WAITING FOR THE GUY to get out of the car and open the door for her. Now, I believe in chivalry, I like it, its nice, I appreciate it, BUT, in 120 degree weather, I'm OPENING MY DOOR AS QUICLEY AS POSSIBLE AND HIGHTAILING IT TO THE CLOSEST PLACE WITH AC!!! Why??? BECAUSE ITS HOT OUT!!!! Sometimes you just need to be PRACTICAL!!! The original intent of chivalry was NOT the romanticized version that we know about now. The original intent of chivalry was for a man to do something for a female, elderly person, or child, that they could NOT do for themselves.
.
There are times, when you need to wait, trust in God and LET HIM OPEN THE DOOR! There are times in life, when there is NO WAY you can open the door yourself and the only thing you can do is WAIT for God to open it. However, while YES, God IS indeed a gentleman, SOMETIMES, there are things that YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF!!! Sometimes, you just gotta OPEN YOUR OWN DOOR!!!
.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IN LIFE, WHAT TO DO AT EACH DOOR YOU COME TOO???
.
The KEY to knowing how you should proceed at each door in life, is THROUGH PRAYER!!! Jesus says in John 10:9 "I am the door..." THE KEY to knowing, IS SEEKING GOD or THE DOOR!!! We have to continually seek God in prayer for His will and direction in our lives. "The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God." (Psalm 14:2)
.
Should I wait? Should I PUSH? Should I PULL? Should I knock? Should I get a key? It can seem so complicated knowing what to do in life, and yet, its SO SIMPLE, PRAY!!! God wants us to PRAY!!! We will know what God wants us to do at each door in life, when we seek Him for His will and direction in our next step.
.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” (Psalm 32:8)

WHY MY BED IS ON THE FLOOR...

MARY LOGIC!!!
Sooooooooo, MY BED is a mattress, A VERY COMFORTABLE mattress, ON THE FLOOR in my room!!! One time, back in the day, while I was moving things around in my room, I decided that I also wanted to move my bed. I didn't think I needed any help moving it, annnnnd I didn't want to be that ANNOYING GIRL that's always asking for help...sooooo lets just say, I PROBABLY should have been that ANNOYING GIRL THAT ASKED FOR HELP!!! Ahahahahahaha!!! The bed frame sorta got twisted the wrong way and that was THE END OF THAT...NO BED FRAME ANYMORE!!!

Now A LOT OF PEOPLE have asked me, WHY DON'T YOU JUST BUY A NEW BEDFRAME, they're not that expensive annnnnd I AGREE, they're NOT!!! Buuuuuut I don't want to, annnnd I'll tell you WHY!!!
.
Having my bed on the floor is GOOD FOR ME!!! See, everyday, several times a day, I have to get up off the floor annnnnd the way I see it, as long as you ALWAYS HAVE TO GET UP OFF THE FLOOR, you'll NEVER, NOT BE ABLE TOO!!! Think about it, think about how as people get older they can't sit on the floor anymore, "OH i'm to old to get down there now! If got down on the floor I'd neverrrr be able to get up again!!!" Weeeeeelllll, that won't happen to  you IF you always do it!!!
.
When I had me weight loss surgery, I had the recliner you see in the above pic moved into my room, because I figured I wouldn't be able to get up off my mattress for a little bit while healing!!! Well, the day I got back from the hospital, I looked at my mattress and I thought, I BET I can get down there and get up again too, sooooo I tried it and BAM, no problemo at all!!! I got right down annnnd RIGHT BACK UP!!!! I'm telling you guys, IT WORKS, of course, I was also trying to get them to let me to walk while still in recovery buuuuuut that's besides the point, I'm telling you guys, put your mattresses on the floor...IT WORKS and its GOOD FOR YOU!!!

What it's like being ME!!!

I looked up on Pinterest things that describe my personality type and found some VERY ACCURATE memes!!! AHAHA!!! Champion Idealists, I think WHY would anyone want a DIFFERENT personality, I literally think that its PART of my personality, to LOVE MY PERSONALITY!!! AND YET, I'm glad we are VERY RARE annnnd only make up 4% of the population!!!
Except for "what do you mean I can't learn 10 different languages at once", I have said all of these:
The last thing like REALLY cracked me up, cuz I would say something like that while washing the dishes or something random like that too!!!
It is at this time Fi has begun to want to wildly gesticulate and panic about the ever ensuing day ahead. Almost busted my shins on the stairs while flying up after meeting Dee this morning... and oh yeah I've been up since about Monday morning... just had figure that damn cognition out man... wow... seriously tho Thank You God for understanding... twice (8/28/13):
This is very true...FOR EXAMPLE...I was going to write a devotional for today...OOOOPS!!!
An ENFPs thought process when asked what ONE THING are you thinking? Ugh this question is so difficult. It's like um...everything??:
YES, this REALLY IS the way mind thinks!!! And I have dreams of it raining FLUFFY puppies sometimes at night...SOOO PRECIOUS!!!
ENFP- That's exactly how I hug people!!:
MAR BEAR HUGS...NEED WE SAY ANYTHING ELSE!!!
sans the spectrum:
YUP!!! LOL
Cake decorating: creative outlet, not a ton of rules to follow, I'm one of two - three people with that job at the store, so I can do my own thing, take my break according to my own schedule most days. Awe yeah.:
This one made me laugh SOOOO HARD!!!
Yeah...I don't mean to do it, but if I don't say it right then and there I'll lose my train of thought.:
Annnnnd EVERYONE that knows me says, AMEN AND AMEN to this one!!!
If I like you, I'll end up noticing what your favorite drink is and getting it for you without you ever even asking for one. On the other hand, I don't even notice when someone is flirting with me.:
YUP!!! Soooooo TRUE!!!

Type 1s. We like to have everything out where we can see it! We fill a room with our personality & with our stuff!:
UH, HUH!!!
Tell me not to do something and I will do it twice and take pictures of it:
UNLESS, your like my pastor...OR someone I actually, ya know, RESPECT!!!
Live Life Happy: Yes I overthink but I also over-love. The post Yes I Overthink But… appeared first on Live Life Happy.:
YUP!!!
If I didn't already know I was ENFP, now I know for sure:
Its VERY hard to be bored...WHEN  YOUR ME!!!
It is my very firm belief that there is ALWAYS a good side to EVERY situation. ALWAYS.:
YES!!!
I have OCPD but I'm #enfp YAAAAAAAAAAAS:
Soooooooooooo TRUE!!!
I've often struggled to type ENSP/ESFP males. An ESFP guy on the internet gave me this tip: a telltale sign is that ESFPs tend to really be unnerved by the idea that someone may be upset with them. The second I've realized, is that with more males than females, ESFPs tend to be able to make the most fun out of any normal situation, and ENFPs tend to dive headlong into adding fun to weirdness.:
See, the thing IS is that, there are SOOOOO many normal people, to be NORMAL!!!
this always complicates things #enfp:
STORY OF MY LIFE!!!
Every day at work. It's my job to greet you with a smile. I don't want your phone number.:
Many in relationships with an ENFP literally say, "They light up my life.":
I believe it...Heh, heh!!!
... and just like that, I lost interest.... ;0:
Soooooooooooooo TRUE!!! So, so, so, SOOOOO VERY TRUE!!!
because if there is an instruction manual, even I don't have it:
Really, I WOULD!!! Hee, hee!!!

Another reminder...

As my mom was getting sicker and weaker in her body, I knew that her time with us was limited and that she would soon be leaving us. Other than being absolutely devastated that I would be losing my beloved mother, there was this burning desire to know, beyond a doubt that my mom was truly ready for heaven. Now I know people reading this are probably thinking, HOW could you even question it???
.
BUT my mom was THE FIRST PERSON to always say, you never TRULY KNOW what is in a person's heart, ONLY GOD DOES!!! I know that my mom would NOT have been mad or hurt by my wondering. In fact, BECAUSE of God showing me she was ready, I was even able to reassure her that she was indeed ready to meet her creator!!!
.
In desperation, I begged and pleaded and cried out to God to show me that she was indeed ready to meet Him. There were several incidents that happened BEFORE she died that let me know that INDEED she was ready to meet her savior face to face, I will share those moments with you in another time...
.
Today I want to share with you all a scripture I noticed in our Sunday morning Bible reading at church...

Psalm 92
Just another reminder to to me, that my mom TRULY was a righteous woman of God!!! For it was just a year or so before she died that her witness got through to Bro. Earl, an elderly man in our church!!! Seeing this scripture on Sunday was just another answer to the prayer I had prayed before her death!!! How awesome is it, that even now, God would give me AGAIN that reassurance that she was right with him!!! I'm Thanking God TODAY for yet another reminder!!! Thank you Jesus for truly caring about the fears and hurts of your people!!!
