Something interesting caught my eye.
Doors to nowhere.
When this old building was functioning as a mill, the doors made sense. They probably had stairs that took a worker safely down from the second story of the building to the ground below.
But not any more.
The stairs are long gone.
One misstep out of these doors and you could end up with broken bones.
And there were multiple doors to nowhere.

But I thought about what it would be like to be on the other side, trying to get out of the building. Using one of these doors would be a bad idea. A really bad idea.
But it would seem okay from the inside since you wouldn't know the stairs were missing.
Then I thought about God and his foresight.
I may see a way that seems good to me. And then I may get frustrated because the way I want to go is blocked.
There may be a really good reason why God blocks my path. He is trying to stop me from making a bad choice or decision.
He will love me nonetheless, but I need to trust him that he is looking out for what's best for me.
And that may come in the form of a locked door.
So when your brain is saying, "I know where I'm going and can get out of this myself," take a deep breath when you find your way blocked.
God may be saving you from a really bad fall.
