When I was a little girl I was always fascinated with “KEYS” I wanted to know what doors did they open, what treasures will I find once I opened the door? I guess all this came from having a diary at the age of fifteen.
Each entry was an adventure for me, I would go to my bedroom at night and sit on the bed and start writing about my entire day. But what made it special was that I had a key that no one knew existed and no one could open it except me. For a fifteen year old that is treasured secret.
But something happen that changed how I felt about my diary, I started keeping a diary at 15 and continued to write in it until the age of 20, my middle sister one night opened and read my diary. I found out that she did because when I went to write my next entry my ribbon was not in the place I left it the night before. When I approached my sister about it she didn’t lie to me she told me the truth.
From that day on my fascination with keys and my diary were no more, I stopped writing and stopped purchasing diaries. Of course my sister saw how it effected me she even went to purchase me a new diary but the secrets was over for me. She now knew what my thoughts and secrets were.
Since those younger years I have started back to writing and I keep a journal, this time my journal consist of more prayers and answered prayers along with my studying time with the Lord. My desire about keys have come back and each key that I see I want to know where it leads. My keys these days are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. And each of those keys opens new opportunities which gives me strength, wisdom, knowledge.
What about you? Do you wonder about KEYS?
