Closed doors are a part of God’s guidance. When God closes a door, it’s because there is a better plan. If He closes a door, He’ll open another door according to His timing – not mine.
I have been leading Women’s retreats at Lasalette Retreat House for the last 11 years and have loved every minute of it. I am sure for those of you who have attended the retreats, you remember Saturday night when we played, dressed up and wore hats. Each year I looked forward to the retreat and the healing and transformations that I witnessed so powerfully.
I was very disappointed and not a happy camper when the retreat was canceled because there weren’t enough women signed up. What was going on? I wondered. I prayed and asked God if I was to continue doing this kind of work and asked for a sign. I needed to let go of my control and surrender my work and business to God.
God did open another door. I was inspired to lead a four hour retreat and invite the 9 women who had signed up for the retreat to my home this past Saturday. What an intimate, sacred and powerful day we had. I was humbled by the love that was poured out amongst the women. I saw God in action and I am so grateful that the door was opened. It was so powerful that God has put it on my heart to offer this mini-retreat on a monthly basis at my home. When women come together and share from their hearts and know they are not alone, magic and healing happens.
God is interested in the details of our lives if we ask and believe. I didn’t have an air-conditioner in my living room and knew that I needed to buy one if I was going to be leading retreats in my home. I wanted a portable one that I could use in my bedroom and office as well. I listened to my intuition (which I believe is God) and went on line to check craigslist. Was I surprised when the first item was a portable air-conditioner that was 2 years old and hardly used. The price was right too – $175 and if bought new today would be $500. I checked the time she posted it on craigslist. It was 10:17 and I saw it at 10:35. If I didn’t follow that intuitive hit and call right away, I would have probably missed out on this bargain and gift from God.
Do you listen to your intuition and follow through? Do you believe God opens and closes doors for your highest good?
