“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him”. -1 John 2:15
Heavenly Treasures or Earthly Stuff’…Words that sum up my husband and my experience when we felt like God was calling us to ‘Get our house in order’! We took this to mean to get our finances inline with his word. That call resulted in our selling our home our business and all our belongings. We had no idea where God was taking us or why. After three months of traveling we still had no answers. With exception of family, we had completely closed the doors to our past and were trying to find that ‘aha’ place that we could both fall in love with. We have always been attracted to a little coastal town that we had often fished for Salmon in. This is where we ended our quest to find God’s will in our life. This is where we learned to live by faith and found perfect peace in every fiber of our being.
“Be very careful then, how you live— not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the day’s are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lords wil is”. -Ephesians 5:15-17
“We had both always been Christians but never lived completely in God’s will. This change in our lives has taken us to a different realm of our Christianity. To be completely obedient with God’s will, we have learned how to put Him first in our lives in every way. We have found a church that welcomes the presence of the Holy Spirit in every service. A church family that lovingly embraces us. A surrounding environment that satisfies both of our favorite hobbies. A beautiful landscape that allows us to hear God’s whispers in the gentle breezes. We began to Daily feed our spirit on his word. Today we are happier then we have ever been before… God blesses us on a daily basis with heavenly treasures and all that it cost us was obedience to his will and giving up at whole lot of stuff’.”
“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares The Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11
