Something to Ponder
From the "Embraced
By The Light: Prayers & Devotions for Daily Living,"
for April 9th:
I Hold the Keys of Heavenís Gate
We hold the key to prisonís door and heavenís gate. When will we choose to learn within the perfect love and light of God? As soon as we do, we throw off our shackles of fear and guilt. By turning the key to heaven, by desiring to enter therein, we allow our Savior to reach us, to save us, to teach us how to become more like him.
The Ripple Effect - page 124
Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Father, thank you for gifting me with keys that open doors to opportunity and growth. Help me especially to keep open the door to your love and truth so that fear and guilt and false tradition donít blind me to your ways. Fill me, father, with courage and conviction to find and follow the true path to heavenís gate, that I might enter and dwell with you forever.
I desire to learn of God and to follow the path of my Savior to heaven.
