Door Opener?

Throughout my life God has placed several people who were door-openers - people who believed in me, or believed better for me, and opened doors to new opportunities. They didn't have to spend a lot of time with me, or go out of their way for me. They were simply present at moments in my life when I needed someone to help me break through.

Sometimes I had my hands full; sometimes I couldn't find the door. Sometimes I didn't even realize there was something else beyond where I was. But they opened the door for me.

Of course, everyone hasn't been so generous. I've experienced my fair share of bouncers: the people who say "no" before the know the question; the people who seem bent on making everything more difficult; the people who never see your potential, never see any maturity, always look for ways they can instruct you but never the ways they can empower you.

I don't know about you, but I hope I'm always the kind of person who opens doors for others.
