Scripture – “I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture (John 10:9).”
Denial – “There is nothing blocking my flow of good.”
Affirmation – “I AM the door; good flows through me and to me.”
Doors work two ways: entrance and exit. They allow people and things to come in and to go out. Jesus spoke of himself as the door granting people access to discover their good (go in) and to share it with others (go out). I AM a conduit to bless other people. The goodness of God flows through me to others. I keep the flow of good in my life by giving and receiving.
Forgiveness is another way that I keep the flow of good in my life. I receive God’s compassion and forgiveness and I extend that same mercy and grace to others. Forgiveness is releasing people from their past words and actions and letting go of any hurt or dis-ease associated with them. When I forgive, I AM maintaining the flow of good in my life. When I hold on to the past, I block the flow of good in my life.
Doors open and doors close. We decide what we are open to and what we are closed to. As a door, I AM open to good thoughts, empowering words and positive actions. As a door, I AM also closed to evil thinking, destructive words and negative actions. I AM open and receptive to divine unlimited ideas. I AM closed to limiting beliefs and injustice.
Reflection Question – As a door, describe something of the things that flow to you and through you?
