“ When God closes a door , he opens a window , but it’s up to you to find it.”
No “When God closes one door He opens another ” is not in the Bible , but be encouraged knowing that God is with you, no matter the position of the door our your situation. Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV) Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God , He is the One who goes with you.
