In joy, Enter The Open Door invites readers to a closer walk with Christ in active faith. Many recognize the open door of His life. These devotions encourage readers to fully enter, starting where they are now. Let God activate your faith through in-depth answers from the Bible and the refreshing power of the Holy Spirit working through Christ's cross in daily life. The reader will find Scripture, prayers, and sharp insights to penetrate life's roadblocks. Each devotion, readable in about ten minutes, is a lesson from the battle zone by a survivor of a near-fatal car crash, cancer with surgery, and serious family health and career challenges, all used by God to bring His children forward in faith. Trained as a reporter, the author recorded lessons God used to lead her through the heat of battle as well as the dangers of comfort and compromise. Each day, walk free.
