The Hallway


I lost my job and the good lady said, "Hey Brother,
When The Lord closes one door, He opens another."
I smiled and agreed and then went somewhere to pray
After awhile I was thinking about what she said that day

Okay, when God closes one door, He opens another way:
But what happens in between? what do I do in the hallway?
I guess that's the test of my faith of my trust in Jesus
He's the One Who provides, He's the One Who sees us

For me, waiting and trusting can be the hardest part
I need to know sooner because I want to move on
But I have to remember God our Father knows best
He's brought us through this before:  we are blessed!

        In the dark hallway I write down these words in faith
        Thank You Jesus for seeing and providing a job today
