When A Door Closes Another One Opens

I'm sure we're all very much familiar with this saying, but as cliche as it may sound it still rings true. A few days ago I have written here about a current crises I am facing about quitting my job due to my illness and how funds are dwindling. AS I cannot work out of the house just yet I tried to look for an online job and I applied for as many as I could. well the other door opened yesterday.... I received an email from 2 yes two employers accepting me to do the job for them and the pay will be enough to meet our day to day needs. God still hears our prayers and all we have to do is keep the right attitude. how bout you what were you blessed with lately?

Congratulations on the job offers. You have been Blessed. My twins have been sick with RSV and I prayed that they would get better. They are better now (still not completely over it but better) and I Thank God for that. Ask and you shall receive. Again, congrats on the eggs!

It's true. When a door closes another one will open. Though we may not know when. Maybe we just need to wait and of course to work for it. Just as you did, you tried to look for a job online and you work hard for it that's why a good opportunity was given to you. With regards to your question, there was really no significant blessings I receive lately but I do consider every day as a blessing from God. The fact that He allowed me to live each day is more than a blessings already.

You're quite right when you say this, and I think that it is important for us to remember that even though some things might no longer seem possible, this doesn't mean that we can't do anything. If something happens to you in your life, you should try to make it into something positive, and even if this doesn't seem all that easy at the time, you will find that when you have managed to do it, you will feel a lot better about yourself than you might have done in the past. It is true that we don't know what is going to happen in our lives, and we just have to be thankful for the good things and move on from all of the bad things.

yes its true. God will never close all doors of opportunities on someone who is honest with his duties. People who say its hopeless in life are those who havent tried enough. they give up easily or are looking for quick ways to come up in life. God does give people a second chance. Only thing is that we must be patient and doing our job till then

Wow!! This is awesome news. I would consider doing something like this from time to time myself if I could find something that would help bring in enough money and offer some medical. Many times when it seems like all it about to fail, that is when God does seem to drop in and help make things better. By praying and trusting him all good things come to those who wait. And yes, it is so True when one door closes another one opens. For us we have seen it many times when it comes to finances. Recently it was when we had a renter move without notice, and we were having problems getting someone in here, just when we really thought we were going to have to give up some things and find someone to borrow some money from, a person rented the room, and even though we are still not financially secure in all things life is Better, and I can never Thank God enough.

That is wonderful! I'm so happy that you got such good news. I was blessed recently by getting a fifty dollar check from my aunt. My rent goes up next month and I'm not sure how I'm going to handle the increase. But the fifty dollars will help.

That truly is a blessing and I am glad it is working out for you. Right now I am facing a lot of challenges (including once again becoming homeless) but I have to admit I need to step up and take more initiative to make my situation better. I too have health challenges but my biggest challenge is staying with a partner who is unhealthy for me. I am still blessed that even in this most of my needs get met and I am thankful but I if I make that tough decision to let go of what's holding me back, the blessins can flow a lot easier.

Congrats on getting those two jobs! Hopefully more will come in the future. I have to agree with the saying as it does happen to me a lot. Whenever something bad happen, there's always something good come with it.

I personally haven't felt like I've been all that blessed recently. However, I can see a lot of blessings that are coming into my best friend's life with her boyfriend. In just the last five days they've gotten a lot accomplished in getting up and on their feet. They've gotten a car, her boyfriend has gotten his driver's license back and car insurance and then today he had a job interview and got a job as well. Now, the main thing that they need is to get a place to live for them and their children.

Indeed, when one thing is over in life, we just wait for the next opportunity to just really come along. Or just find a door to force ourselves through as the case really means. Life really when you think about it, is divided right into chapters. There are times where we flip the page, close the door, and really end up in some place wonderful. Instances occur where something unfortunate really just happens but it could pave the road for something more wonderful. It is really amazing how life is really just going to end like that, just end in such an amazing and wonderful way. I really just feel like life is just going to be many things and life is just going to be brightened in a number of ways, even in the darkest situation.

Yes it is true that when one door closes another one opens but I for one have had a lot of new doors that am expecting to open onto me being shut and always staying shut. I don't know if I have stopped believing in the quote and in the power of GOD who does all things or rather I must have lost the right attitude due to present state of things around me, difficulty level have risen a lot higher if you know what I mean. I used to be one of those who hold this quote so strongly in the past and have always nagged about it to my friends because it was all happening good at that time, I particularly noticed that when things were hard, it was quick for them to turn around to being better not just good. I am so glad for you and your faith in this quote and also the new jobs you just got, I also endure you not to stop believing because this I think is the drive that pushes you to never stop believing in GOD and a reminder for me to retrace my footsteps back to my GOD because he does all things. Nevertheless, I guess GOD still answers our prayers.

Is that online job? what kind of job is that? Me I'm not that lucky. Been jobless for four years now and I can't still find a job right now and as I grow older I have more and more hard time finding a job.
