The Doors

This piece was inspired by my dear friend, Jennifer Swoish.
Jen is a writer and blogger at but more than that, she is a prayer warrior. She has prayed some of the sweetest prayers over me and my family and I am blessed to have her in my life.

Please close the doors Lord, that are distracting me
Presenting themselves as opportunities
Because they steal my attention and focused gaze
Away from Your plan…leaving me in a haze

Clouded with decisions I don’t need to make
Revealing over time…it was no lucky break
But open wide the doors and invite me in
Where I can visit with You, Lord, time and again

Where the people I meet will move me along
To publish that book of devotional poems
Bind Satan and his minions from attacking my mind
So I can write Your truths and help others find

The doors You’ve opened along their way
Closing doors that would only cause a delay
And if doors are locked and without a key
But within Your will Lord, allow us entry

If locked doors are not part
Of your Master Plan
Open a window, Lord
To safe, dry land

  1. This is simply beautiful! Thank you for the accolades, but really it is an honor to do life with you and a privilege to pray over those tender areas.
    Keep your pen to the paper, you have extraordinaire gifts to share!

    1. You have a beautiful gift as well, and are very wise for your years…wisdom that only comes from a heart that trusts in The Lord, that reads His Word daily and has painted it indelibly on their heart. Love you girlfriend!
