LET HIM IN!

"I slept but my heart was awake.
Listen! My beloved is knocking:
‘Open to me, my sister, my darling,
my dove, my flawless one.
My head is drenched with dew,
my hair with the dampness of the
night.’" —Song of Solomon 5:2
How do you respond when God comes
knocking on your door? Do you get up
and let Him in? Do you make the changes
that you are inspired to make? Sadly, the
woman in the Song of Solomon hesitates.
She has just gotten into bed and she
doesn’t want to dirty her feet. Eventually,
she decides that getting her feet dusty is
a small price to pay for the gift of seeing
the love of her life, but by the time she gets
to the door, he is already gone.“I opened
for my beloved, but my beloved had left;
he was gone. My heart sank at his
departure” (Song of Solomon 5:6). A
moment’s hesitation can lead to a lifetime
Don’t be that woman. When God pays you
a visit — when you get a flash of inspiration
or you are suddenly clear about your path in
life — don’t think it over too much. When
God is at your doorstep, let Him in! Let Him
into your life and let Him change your life.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
