The Key

A few weeks ago, I was driving to a funeral (and running late, of course). I had an egg wrap that I was planning on saving for later, but I couldn’t resist. When I took a bite, egg spilled on my shirt. I pulled into the nearest parking lot, which belonged to a park. I had passed by there many times; however, I had never stopped. When I opened my car door, I found a house key with a name and number on the tag. I called the number and a young girl answered. Having a daughter, myself, I could sense that this call was upsetting to her. She told me that she didn’t know anything about the key. After explaining everything to her mother, she realized I was just trying to do a nice thing. I dropped the key off at the Sheriff’s department and the matter was closed.

The circumstances surrounding my discovery of the key lead me to conclude that there was some purpose at work. Was I put in that position to intervene in something nefarious? I believe that God presents opportunities to do the right thing, and that He allows us to live our lives to freely choose ignoring the hassle of getting involved or reaching out regardless of the burden that decision creates. Choosing God is the key to the promise of life in paradise, He does not force us to accept Him.   

Life is filled with circumstances and situations that lead me to one conclusion, that God is there through everything.  He does not leave us if we ask Him to stay.  We are not promised a life free from heartaches and headaches, what we are promised is that if we pick up the key, the door it will open will lead us to paradise.  

God Bless,

Andrej Lah

Director of Cemeteries
