HAVE YOU NOTICED YOUR TREASURE?
As you go through this week, with all the feelings of loss and lack that are woven through this world, don't forget you have a Treasure which can never be taken away. ~ Jesus: our hope, protector, comforter, guide, provider, wisdom-whisperer and rescuer. ~ What more could I desire in life than you, Jesus? ~ Yet, despite this Perfect Gift, all day the hum of life seems to rattle that certainty. It tricks me into thinking I'm lost and alone. ~ But, oh, the treasure I have in Jesus, One that will never fade or change. He will never leave my side, never tire of me, and always reaches for me with an invitation to focus on Him, my ultimate treasure. ~ So: as this day pulls you this-way-and-that, become a treasure seeker. ~ Close your eyes, in the midst of the mess, and say quietly: "Jesus, YOU are ALL I need". ~ Your whispered micro-prayer brings the awareness of His presence (always there but easy to miss) which rises above your problems and covers you with His comfort. ~ Feel your heart expand and your face warm & soften as you remember everything you need is right there with you. ~ COLOSSIANS 2:2-3 My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. ~
