New found treasure

I have started a new Bible study and have purposed in my heart to spend more time with God. I am blessed to live in a country where I am free to do so!

Since my discipline to spend more time in God's word and to spend more time getting to know Him in prayer. I've found new treasure for my day.

I've found strength when I am weak. Patience when I'm frustrated. Hope when I've felt hopeless. Direction when I feel lost. Peace in the midst of a storm.

I've made it a point to pray for my family. My relationship with my children has changed! Since I've been praying for my husband in full detail my relationship with him has changed. Does it mean this aspect of my life is perfect? No. However, there has been a difference in how we have responded to one another. There has been a difference in conflict resolution!

So where does your treasure lie? I am learning that when I spend time with God the riches of the world become less appealing and the treasures through Christ Jesus become my goal. Have I completely surrendered myself? Well, I'm working on it. I haven't made it there yet, but when I spend time with my Father, he is showing me how to have that heart of worship, a heart of surrender! So, I can truly store up treasure in heaven!

I am so glad I have purposed to spend more time alone with my Heavenly Father! I know He has great things in store for us. I leave today with this scripture...

Matthew 6:20-21
But lay up for yourself treasures I'm heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
