I went on a run today. When I run, I usually have to hold onto my key. My pockets are usually not deep enough, and quite frankly they would definitely fall out.
So I clench my key in my sweaty hand.
We, humans, hold onto a lot of things tightly in our hands.
A lot of things that don’t really matter…
Such as anxiety, fear, mistrust, doubt. We clench onto all this stuff.
We need to let it all go and open our hands.
However, while running and holding my key for dear life, I was reminded of the fact that there is one thing we need to hold onto.
The Key that opens up Home.
When we are born we are all given a key. Through Baptism and our choices we decide if we want to hold onto this gift.
One day we are gonna have to hand over our key to God and He will open the gates and call us Home.
This key is the ability to enter into the Kingdom of God.
We must never forget that when life gets tough and we feel like we cannot go forward anymore.
Our purpose is to make it Home and enter through the gates.
We were given a key in our hearts.
So keep running, and don’t drop the key.
