God Gives a Gate

Kathy — God builds gates through a new thought, a new opportunity or a word of counsel.  After wearing a path around your fence lines looking for answers, a new gate is a welcomed sight.  One of my usual methods is to confront problems head-on until they are resolved.  One day I distinctly heard the Holy Spirit say, “Kathy, confrontation is not always the best method for resolve.”  That was not a  “traditional thought” for me, and it gave me new direction.  I could suddenly see the wisdom of not approaching a friend of mine and laying everything out verbally. Due to my friend’s temperament and personality, confrontation would be gas on their fire rather than water. That word from God became a gate into a whole new set of tools for resolving problems.
