TREASURE OR TREASURED

In my lifetime I have experienced living with little, living modestly, living with means and living with little once again. When you have money, it doesn’t mean you are happier or are twice blessed. It simply means you have more to be in charge of.

Having wealth can bring some sense of freedom from worry, but it doesn’t buy peace of mind or happiness or love or the things of true value including eternal life. Whatever we are blessed with in life is a gift from God and should be managed as such.

God gives us so much more than worldly riches. He gives us the silver of His forgiveness and the gold of an inheritance with Him in heaven. Thank you, Lord, Jesus for giving me this gift of promise. Remind me that earthly wealth is just temporary. I have so much more to look forward to. It’s what lies ahead that gives us true wealth.

Don’t give me a mansion on top of the hill.

Don’t give me the world with a shallow thrill.

But just give me a savior my life He can hold.

I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold.

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Kathy,

    I am sorry for not stopping by the last two weeks as my laptop crashed and it has taken me this long to resurrect it.

  2. St Francis demonstrated this notion so splendidly when he stripped naked in the main piazza in Assisi when his father was so angry that his boy who was of means, social standing and wealth should want to serve God as a lowly monk. So as a crowd had gathered during the heated argument, Francis simply took off every stitch of clothes he was wearing since it had all been bought with his father’s wealth and announced that he was now 100% God’s and God’s alone —
