What will your treasure be?


Every day, every moment, every decision, every choice we are faced with this question – “What will your treasure be?” Will it be for your power? Will it be for your fame? Will it be for your success? Will it be for your wealth? Will it be for honor of yourself? Every post, every tweet, every picture, every share on your social platform cannot dodge the question “What will your treasure be?” Will it be for your glory? Will it be for your greatness? Will it be for your stardom? Will it be for your notoriety? Will it be for your praise? For every material possession we have or desire to have, we must ask this question – “What will your treasure be?” Will riches be your legacy? Will possession be your security?

To Love is to be vulnerable


“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal.

It’s not about things but it’s all about Him!


He is all I’ll Ever Need Sometimes all we want from God is a quick fix, a blessing, an answer to our questions or at least an explanation for our pain, sufferings and tragedies. So we cry out, fast and pray, seek, chase and pursue Him as if He is playing hide and go seek – until it dawns on us – that it is not about things but about Him. It’s about finding Him, being with Him, getting lost in Him, becoming crazy about Him, loving Him.  When you come to that place – than you will understand that this is all you want – all you will ever need – all you will ever live for. So today, let Him capture your heart again, let Him bring you to a place of depth in Him, a place you have never been before. A place where you are completely lost in the wonder of His love. Only than will you understand that it is not about things but it’s all about Him!
