O Jesus, Thou art standing
Outside the fast-closed door;
In lowly patience waiting
To pass the threshold o’er:
Shame on us, Christian brethren,
His name and sign we bear,
Oh, shame, thrice shame upon us
To keep him standing there.
There are times I have people knock on my door and I don’t feel well so I just let them keep knocking and never answer it. Rude I know. This makes me wonder how often Jesus knocks on the door to my heart and I just keep him standing there? When I am in a personal crisis and I knock on his door he flings it open and ushers me right on in. What if one day when I TRULY need him, not just a mental meltdown, he doesn’t feel like getting up from watching”Glee” and his door stays closed. What would I do? I need to put my self aside just for a moment and answer the door when he knocks. Take the time to listen to him and let him in the door to my heart.
I ask that you open my heart. I ask that when You or you Son Jesus knocks on the door to my heart that I Hear that knock and heed your call. Father I also pray that I open my heart to others that knock and that you can guide me to befriend them and they me. Lord only you can work miracles and I ask by opening my heart that you can use me in part to do your good deeds.
In Jesus name I pray,
