Locking and unlocking a door can be accomplished by a key. Unlocking the door and finding our radiant savior standing on the other side is what He wants. Many can feel His warmth through the door. They will lean their face to the door and even try to invite Him to come through the unopened,still locked door. He can't. He won't. He wants us to simply turn the key.Yet many won't.
For those of us that do,we'll also learn something else about the key.
You see,when we use the key the other way,we turn it to lock the rooms of our past.
The rooms of our past lives will always be there. We'll walk by them sometimes daily. We'll always have that key that fits all of our past rooms and occasionally,occasionally we may even open one,or two of those past doors with that key and go in.
He'll wait for us to come back out. When we come back out[and we will] he'll hear our wimpering,our heart felt regrets and sadness and our prayer asking forgiveness.
"Yes,my child I know your weakness" He'll say.
"You know that I love you and always will."
"Now-lock that door and let's get back to our journey."
Our key is to listen to the holy spirit.
Our key is to not lose focus on His eternal promise and to believe His overwhelming love for us.
Yes,that's the key to enjoying life on this side of eternity.
Will we ever understand the depth of His love? No.
It's not meant for us to understand. We serve a risen Lord that we'll never understand. That is the key to enjoying this side of eternity!
The other side of eternity will need no more keys and there will be no more rooms to think about. Unlolck His door and not only feel His radiance but know He will be your loving guide on this journey.

This is a lovely mini sermon with so many wonderful illustrations to make the reader stop and think. You had a few punctuation errors. You may want to find a good proofreader or get a book like Strunk's element of Style. I find it quite helpful.
I always enjoy an article that makes me stop and think. Your piece did just that. Thank you for sharing it.

I loved this cross between an essay and a poem. It had great imagery and I loved the end. I did see one misspelled word.
