I took this shot on our way back from Pittsburgh, going East on Route 22.
It’s a rather funny image. Look at it. Can you see why?
At first glance, this may look like a bunch of doors to individual storage units. It was just that. But looking more closely, one can see that it is not at all–now. All that is left of an exterior wall of storage units is now just a row of doors…that serve as a fence. Theoretically, just one key could get you inside. Right? One key, but which door should one pick?
I think this a great picture of life. You have a key to get through the next barrier. It may look like a wall standing tall before you. On closer inspection, or through a different perspective, you will see the doors. But, you may have a tough time finding which door lock matches your key. You may need to be persistent…or fetch a ladder.
Once you open the door, (or climb the fence) you don’t find a small windowless room. You find yourself on the other side of a fence that once stood in your way. There will be many fences like this in your life.
SO-Will you see those walls as having doors, or will they only be fencing separating you from progress?
What is something in your life that seemed like a fence, but in fact had a door you could open?
or, if you prefer,
What area of life has doors, but yet usually seems impregnable?
