Honest Christianity – locked doors

IMG-20120805-00383

Some people we are close to are going through very difficult times at the moment – this image is one which fills us with hope – and gives us something that we can pray. Sometimes a book is worth reading for one thought we find in it, this is one of those times.
The image of Christ going through locked doors is perhaps the most consoling within our entire faith. Put simply, it means that God can help us even when we cannot help ourselves. God can empower us even when we are too weak and despairing, even minimally, to open the door to let him in.

  1. Really Love the image. The quote is so true of what God has done (and continues to do) in my life over the past few months. I am so in awe of of him!

      • Yes, after six years of being too ill to really do anything it’s incredible how much and how fast things are changing. Feel like I need God to put the brakes on sometimes! Still a long way to go in terms of recovery but tonnes better. Every day is an adventure. I am loving God and loving life! Will try and write a prayer letter soon. x
