“But I trust in your unfailing love…”
“It’s dark in here, God,” I said as the door closed shut behind me. There was no answer. I felt my way along the walls as I slowly crept forward. “It’s a long hallway, God,” I said. I took another hesitant step forward. Where I thought I was going, I had no idea. Eventually, I tired and sat down. “It’s getting cold, too,” I called out. Still, no answer. And so I sat in the cold dark, and waited, doing all I could to keep my rising anxiety at bay.
After what seemed like an eternity, I called out again to God. “Hello? Can you hear me? I know you have to be here.”
“Of course, I’m here,” God called back.
“Why didn’t you answer me earlier?” I asked.
“I was busy arranging your next chapter,” God answered.
“My next chapter?”
“What you’ll be doing next with your life. I closed the door on your last chapter and I’ve not yet opened the next door. I’m working out the details,” God explained.
“What do I do while you’re busy working everything out?” I asked.
“Hold onto my promise,” God said.
So I sat, in the dark hallway, holding onto the promise of God, waiting patiently for Him to open the next door.
After some time had passed I called out, “Thank you for all you’re doing for me.” Just then, God opened the next door. Light flooded into the hallway and I could see what was next, and it was so beautiful!
