8Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. 9Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son. (2 John 8-9)
I have walked through many doors throughout my journey. These passageways have brought a vast array of life experiences that would last only as long as my commitment permitted. There have been too many times I lacked the stamina to continue onward for what ever my cause may have been. Grasping this in my spirit has me taking inventory into the current doorway I am passing through.
My assessment of this current pathway has me reaching for inner doors and hallways rather than my usual quest for a quick exit. There is an inner spark that beckons for a deeper understanding and relationship with the Lord, which gives me purpose to continue.
I know this—the labyrinth of life has the ability to lock us up and throw away the key. It attempts this through varying degrees of heartache, dependency, tragedy and an endless array of distractions. I also know this—Christ is the key to topple this house of cards and expose the illusions this maze presents.
I have come to know there is a level of devotion that is required to truly travel through the doors of ones faith. The relationship I now have with God was born from the teaching of Jesus and His truth as it is written. I must be diligent in my awareness to live within these teachings to experience the keys of His reward. He continues to open the inner doors of my faith.
I pray as I go forward I continue to look to the Lord to lead me through the doors of life, as He is the key that leads me through the right passage.
May God Bless You and Give You Grace.
