We are all have a list of Bible verses, books, and stories that have inspired us, marking key moments in our journey. There is a poem that has been an anchor for Theodyssey for a long time. A guide rail in our vision discussions. You can find the entire poem HERE, but we wanted to share the first section as a taste.
I stand by the door.
I neither go to far in, nor stay to far out.
The door is the most important door in the world –
It is the door through which men walk when they find God.
There is no use my going way inside and staying there,
When so many are still outside and they, as much as I,
Crave to know where the door is.
And all that so many ever find
Is only the wall where the door ought to be.
They creep along the wall like blind men,
With outstretched, groping hands,
Feeling for a door, knowing there must be a door,
Yet they never find it.
So I stand by the door.
We desire to stand by the door. To help people, who genuinely desire “more,” to find Jesus. Will you stand by the door for the people in your life.
