Catching leaves

I don't usually post on a Sunday but a thougth came to me and was wondering if anyone else ever thinks like I do.

A lazy Sunday and I was enjoying watching my cats sit at the glass door watching leaves falls. Soon I joined them on the floor. I often lay on the floor with the cats. The cats love watching the leaves and as the fall toward the deck they will jump at the door thinking they will catch a leaf. The keep jumping even thought they don't catch the leaf because they are cats and can't open the door.

So I got to thinking of all the times I want something. Sometimes it gifts and blessing from God. I keep going for them put don't seem to reach any. My problem is I didn't open the door and walk through it. God has blessings and gifts just waiting for us but we need to be obedient to Him and open the door and walk toward Him. Once we open the door and move closer to God He sends His blessing and gifts floating to us.

I can't receive these blessing hidding inside my house or self so I will open the door for the Lord to do His work in me.
