“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this…”
The key symbolizes a significant wisdom that goes beyond strength. I can only imagine a key that opens the way to peace and green pastures where animals and children play. I hope and pray for anger and evil to be bound so that we can have hope and a clear view of Heaven.
What awaits us as we walk out the door of this life into a new reality? I believe that death is like a door that we walk through and there is a new world called heaven with plenty of green rolling hills to traverse.
“Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name”.
This week’s prompt at word press weekly photo challenge is perspective. Perspective in writing, photography and life depends on how you look at an image, verse, situation. Having sustained (disabling) injuries from two ice storms, I am relegated to sit (three of my four limbs in braces or casts). From my chair, I am looking at the door toward winter and the painting of a vibrant spring. I am grateful that I unlike those who face a lifetime of immobility will be able to go outside and embrace the spring. For now I am warmed by beauty, loved ones and God.
