What do we do about the doors we don’t want to open?

Read: “A Quiet Space to Find Refreshment,” Quiet Spaces: Prayer Interludes for Women, pages 19-43.


Missed Opportunities

Are there doors in my life that I missed? What happened?



Think of a regret you have – something that you missed out on, or didn’t do, or chose to ignore. Reflect on your feelings today about that regret.



Forgiving God, I know there are times when I deliberately ignored a door that was before me – because I was afraid or because I didn’t want to do something. Forgive me and redeem that choice in my life. Amen.
