Daddy, I have opened the door...

A Methodist minister tells a story of his little girl, who, wishing to speak to him one day when he was in his study, came up the stairs, and, finding the door closed, put her small hand on the doorknob. The child's hand was too tiny to grasp the knob firmly enough to turn it.


To her delight, however, the handle turned, the door opened, and she ran into the study, exclaiming: Oh, Daddy, I have opened the door all by myself!


She was all unaware that her father, hearing her trying to open the door, had quietly got up from his chair and turned the handle from the inside. Thus God helps us when we do our best, and he makes the impossible possible.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

šŸ‘‰ If we could only see the Father running towards us to open that door to let us in! We would feel accepted in the beloved!
