Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

A Red Door in a Field of Corn

on May 24, 2020



Luke 11:9- “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

John 4:35b- “I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”


My husband and I were enjoying a road trip throughout the midwest.

We rolled the car windows down and breathed in the fresh air as we drove down a narrow road flanked on both sides with ripening corn.

You can imagine our surprise when up ahead we noticed a door standing in the middle of a field.

Painted red, it stood out like a neon sign.

My husband pulled the car over, letting it idle as we took in the odd sight. “I wonder why someone put a door in the middle of a corn field.”

“It would make a great painting. The kind of art you see in galleries.”

As we drove on, I contemplated the door. Its purpose… Its intended message.

Several scriptures came to mind. And then a smile…

It may have not been the message the farmer intended, but God’s message was there for all to see. He has subtle messages all around us, if we only take time to make the connection.

That’s why I started writing weekly blogs over five years ago. It has brought me closer to God and I hope those of you that have been “following” me have been blessed, too.
