"Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroys, and where thieves break in and steal.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
As I look for ways to "teach" or better said practice compassion with my children I ponder on these words written in the Bible, the Word of God.
How much do you accumulate?
I surely have accumulated a ton of stuff in the last 10+ years. Mainly books, papers (Oh dear!), crafting tools, Shoes I dont use, toys-well that was my kids- and smile... STUFF!
There is a desire in me, to get rid of things. Does that happen t you too at times?
Yes, that too! For the sake of focusing on the things that truly matter. To make a difference. That's my goal…make a difference in my world. In my family, my friends, my city. It starts here at home. In our hearts.
I started reading this book on my Kindle App…is a good start. I am learning. I create more when things are in order. I wan t God's order in my life. I want to be all He wants me to be.
Very interesting…still not done with it.
Will give you a better review later on.
Those who give…certainly make a difference.
Could you share below some ways you are practicing giving...instead of getting?
*Tomorrow I will have a giveaway.Just a little start in one of the many ways I can simply bless others with my "letting go" of things. Come back!
Defeated…is just a feeling.
Emotions can be so harsh on us at times. Not sure what you are struggling with. But at times I struggle with defeat. I am not defeated thou.
"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
Let me simply remind you, if there is a vision, if there is a promise. Please Do NOT stop trying!
Harness your emotions like my friend Pastor Andrew Wommack teaches and ENJOY the ride. God has good things in store for you.
Do your best today, and forget the rest. Leave the rest to God. He cares for you.
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen, since what we see is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Never Ever Give Up !This is just ... inspiring Respect
