Soul Window

I was touring an historic house from the 18th Century.  The guide pointed out a small window in the bedroom and said this was a “soul window”.  The early German settlers believed that if one died in a windowless room, their soul would be trapped and could not pass.  The soul window was opened near the time of death so that a loved one could easily move onto the next life.

I don’t like to be confined in a windowless room.  Even with central air, I feel closed in.  My soul may not need to be released to the other side but I certainly like being able to see out.

Open your windows today and allow the Holy Spirit to blow in.  Feel His breeze.  Enjoy His wind.  Stand and see His horizon and know His plans.  Be prepared for when the time is right to open the door to walk out into His garden.

Genesis 8:5-7 (NIV)

The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.

After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth.


Leon Wyczółkowski, 1933
