Treasures Of The Heart

Standard

A little Tuesday tune-up of my blog, led me to a blog entry from earlier this year. Having read through it again….something stilled my heart, called me to surrender to the fullness of the moment for a quiet time with Him around my own thoughts from that particular day.

I AM a “word-girl”! I am captured by a vingette of the heart. Word pictures that draw me in, settle deep within my soul, hug me tight and capture a needed place to dwell. God always sends a word in due season. When I am all wound up, got stuff to do and ready to start checking off the to-do list? The Lord met with me as I slowed to a focused pace, leaned in and savored every moment with Him as a treasured gift.

“The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.” Matthew 6:21 {MSG}

In this moment, you may well know that the to-do’s to do, have been transferred in an orderly fashion to tomorrow’s to-do list…….and all is well. If the Lord allows, tomorrow will bring with it demands that need my attention, stuff will still need to be done, etc…

I bend low in honor of my Lord in prayer this night. I whisper thank you for the extra measures of grace and mercy for the moments of my life that have gone unsurrendered. The peace, at this day’s end, that came with the treasured gift of spending time in the place that I most want to be. In conversation and communication with my Lord and Savior, who has given me life forever and access to treasures that are eternal and promised to all who are in Christ. I have been blessed with more than I will ever need for this life. And the blessings…..I am still counting!!

“Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars” Matthew 16:19-20
