“Knock and the door will be opened to you”

I like doors. For as long as I can remember I like all types of doors. The little house I grew up in had the kind of door with two halves, one top and one bottom. It was our “air-conditioning system” in the tropics. If you needed more air flow through the home you would leave the top half open. The bottom would still be closed to retain privacy. Another “benefit” of the top half is, when opened you could look outside and chat with neighbors, greeting them as they strolled by, without leaving the comfort of home.

Doors have symbolic importance for sure. They reflect passage. In each moment of life we are different. We have the passage of time to thank for that. Not to mention how time can develop our character, our world view, our situation and so on from one moment to the next. Thus, as we pass through a door, even if it is the same door we travel through each day, we are moving from one moment of our present time into another moment of our present future.

Doors can be representative of opportunity. They can represent a new thing, a new way of looking at something, a new view point or an old perspective revisited.

As you pass through the doors of your daily routine: your home, your work, your office, the grocery story and more, take a moment to honor the “doors”, that you have come through, the situations you now see with a new perspective, because you have chosen to move forward.

Honor the new view of the world that you can now see as you pass from one room of your life to another.

You have been granted access to the door to your destiny. All you have to do is “knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

  1. I love your post about doors, Suzette. Both in the beautiful pictures and metaphorically.
    The first door that you used for air conditioning is called ‘ stable door’ here. I have one
    opening to the kitchen which I use to get fresh air in and when it is hot in summer.

    A door should have personality.
