We are living in a world where doors are really beneficial. It is a constructed material used to open or close a place like our homes, or offices. In fact, who among us do not know what doors are? Doors are nearly universal in buildings of all kinds, allowing passage between the inside and outside, and between internal rooms. When open, they admit ventilation and light. The door is used to control the physical atmosphere within a space by enclosing it, excluding air drafts, so that interiors may be more effectively heated or cooled. Doors are significant in preventing the spread of fire. They act as a barrier to noise. But these past few days I’ve learned more about doors…What doors really are in a deeper sense. Whew!
It was a weird thing but believe it or not these whole summer vacation I experienced dealing with doors for almost 7 times. The first time it happened, it was not a meaningful thing to me. Why? Who among us wanted to be locked on our room alone? Or you wanted to change clothes but you can’t because the door of your room was damaged and even you have the keys, you really can’t open it. Or, saddest fact was you don’t have keys, and the only thing that can open it is for you to totally destroy it. It will really test your patience. But the greatest revelations were the things you would learn after opening it.
Everyday we open and close doors, taking a passage from the profane outer space into the sacred inner space, crossing the boundary of public and private, the mysterious and familiar, darkness and light, life and death… Everyday we walk through a door of some kind; whether it is a door of consciousness or an entrance door of our house, we face symbols and metaphors on a daily basis.
The door symbolizes transition, metamorphosis. It is an allegory of beginning, opening, exit that leads from one state of being to the next. The door signifies thecommencement of the new, while at the same time embodying the idea of an end.
There are doors in our lives which do not open yet. Sometimes it is also because of our own beliefs or the reality that God has planned the proper time for the doors be open in your life. All we have to do is to patiently wait for our doors to be opened fully. We have the keys but the question is, is it the right key… We should have the right heart and ask God of his desires for us and be able to understand what he really wants to do in our life.
Doors open a lot of things in our life. All we should do is not just to stay in our comfort zone; instead we must go outside the doors of our life and go to our courage zone. All success is found in our courage zones. Our comfort zones just became a dwelling place of our past. Our courage zone sees the future. So right now, we should all stand up and be firm. We must all go out of our own doors. Enter the courage zone and leave our comfort zones. And finally, at the back of our doors where courage zone can be found, we can now all face the future that lies behind us. Breakthroughs, blessings and success are at hand. We just have to have the right keys and a right heart. Doors never close if we choose to.
