I remember my father’s set of keys.  It was a large ring full of keys to buildings throughout our community.  The church key…the fire department key…the town hall key...

Keys reflect responsibility and a level of trust.  Throughout my life many keys have been placed in my hand.  My house key…the church key…the car key…

Keys have two real purposes, they lock away and they set free.  With the turning of each key, the limits were removed and set me free to experience God in a fresh new way.  But no key is more important than the key of faith in Jesus Christ.  This key of faith unlocked for me a world of possibility.  The key of a quality education opened opportunities for meaningful service in the Kingdom of God.  The key of deep prayer helped discern God’s path for me and my family. 

Allow me the privilege to share with you spiritual keys to new possibilities!
