Though the clouds may be gray outside my window; I feel so sunny inside; I have been doing a whole lot of thinking; It has made me realize; life is what we make it; We’re happy if we want to be; The doors that we open can all be good ones; we ALL have the Masters Key; So, look through the clouds, the sun is still there; Jump over the rocks that you see; Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart; Hold tight to the Masters Key.

In Psalm 18:29, David says, ” By God we can run through a troop and jump over a wall…” This reminds me of the Masters Key we have been given as children of God.
To me Dot’s picture shows a well-defined contrast of clear sky vs dark and the words of the poem do also. Each illustrates a contrast of choices that God allows us to make each day…trust or doubt; persevere or quit; hopeful attitude or defeated attitude. Dot’s poem tells of triumphal choices.
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
2 Cor 2:14
Dot, your prose reminds me of a Psalm of David where he says, “I’d rather be a door keeper in the house of the Lord than dwell in the mansions of men.” And Jesus told Peter HE had given to His saints, the keys to the Kingdom. That IS the MASTER’S KEY! And it has been given to the children of God. So we can open the door to salvation, joy and happiness as your writing says, for that is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Another master key to the upstairs of my house, “I can do all thing through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.”
You said, “we All have the masters key”. What is the master’s key?
Needles, The Master’s Key is the faith that we have in Jesus . There are many who do not believe in Him but, they still have the key. They just have to find it. It was given to us all. : )
And I love the part of your poem Dot that exhorts us to “Hold tight to the Masters Key”.
It brings this scripture to mind:
“We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith. The one who made the promise is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
And I am thinking that once we find the key you write of, we must put it to use so Jesus will find us holding on and using it when He returns for He warned us, “However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8
And this also brings the mental image of that painting of Jesus, knocking at the door or one’s heart. Jesus says, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens to me I will come in and My Father and I will sup with him.” Maybe that’s the Master’s key that with which we can unlock the door of our hearts and let Jesus come in. As your poem says, we all have the key to the door of our hearts. Jesus wants in. So let us take the Master’s Key and open up to Him and the Father. Then, OH the GLORY for when we open our hearts to the Lord Jesus Christ we become born again and that Master’s Key will open the gates of heaven to us because we have chosen to take Jesus as our Lord and Savior and have opened our heart’s door to HIM with the Key that He has already given us. AMEN
