I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in December 2007, a few months after I joined CB and went through treatment. Two years later, without any warning, a cerebral aneurysm ruptured when I was asleep. It is only by the grace of God that I not only survived but that I am able to type these words today. Though we may face trouble, we do not have to be victims of our circumstances, we can be victors over them through Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:35-39)

When you wrote, "Besides, staying where we are is not risky or is it? Failure to go through the door could mean risking the loss of an experience I'd regret for the rest of my life." I thought of Noah and what it would have been like for him to walk through the open door of the Ark after all the animals had entered in already. I am guessing that he knew that what he was seeing as he went in was NOT going to be there when he came out again.
Watching the above video made we wonder if I would actually go bunji-jumping. I kind of think that would be like tempting the Lord or something. Not sure I could do it. :(
I just realized that when there is a very plain "Thus saith the Lord, thou shalt not", yet the door is open it is NOT right to go through. The Bible story of Jesus being taken up onto the top of the temple is a case in point. Or when He was so hungry and the stones could have been made into bread. That was an "open door" if you will. I think that this would fall under asking God NOT to lead us into evil.
Wow, had never thought of all that before, thanks.
I do know from experience that when you know there is a best way to go, but not sure which one it is, if you ask for His leading He will direct your paths like you have never seen done before. (He also seems to enjoy doing things differently each time, maybe just to show us that He is not limited by our one-track minds?)
If the door that is open is to someplace that a Christian could ask his/her Guarding Angel to go then Go For It!
I know what you mean I always find it hard to leave a comfortable spot. But keep opneing those doors he wants you too he always with you and he will never lead you down the wrong path. You go girl god bless you.

You are so right princess. Sometimes, before God opens a door for me He asks me, "What would you do if you weren't afraid?" He gets me to really thinking with that question!
