Today my life is good. The heart ache is gone and has been replaced with pure, treasurable love. My life once again has purpose and meaning. I finally feel like I have been placed on the right path which will propel me into my destiny. Life has not always been easy and even now there are steps I still am hesitant to take. I have come to this place where I trust God and I go where He says to go. Like Jesus mirrored in His ministry, he only did what He saw the Father doing, anything else would have been man’s doing,
How did I get from point A to point B without losing myself? I am not sure except there came this one day when my life was crashing all around me and I chose to stop running. It’s hard to wrap my mind around some of the things God calls us to do, and often they make absolutely no sense to the human thought process, yet I know beyond the shadow of a doubt it’s the way of God working in my life.
What caused me to write today about treasure? My husband. He left yesterday for a 2 day road trip. For most married couples that is no big deal, in fact often welcomed. Not me. Within the hour of him leaving I felt a loss. Not that I can’t be without him, I didn’t WANT to be without him. My husband is not what I asked for at all. I really had no choice when he dropped onto the radar of my life. For you see, I had this in-depth conversation with God in which I clearly stated that I did not want another man in my life after my divorce. Sometimes I am glad God does not listen to our pleas only because He has something so much better to offer us.
When John came in to my life I was broken. My heart had been shattered into a bazillion pieces and I had no desire to put them back together or be loved again, BUT God softened my heart. He renewed my thinking. As He did this, John became a true treasure in my life. The more I tried to say I did not deserve his love, the more God moved. Now, I would not trade my husband for anything in the world because I know how much he means to me and I know beyond the shadow of a doubt this is God’s plan for my life.
So what is your treasure? Is there something God has given to you that perhaps you did not understand? I encourage you to seek God for what your treausrable love is. Sometimes His ways do not make sense to us, but He is our loving Father and He desires to give us the best of everything. My best gift was love. The love of my children. The love of my husband. The love of dear friends. And most importantly the love of God which He has poured into my life even in the moments where I felt less than deserving of anything. Be still right now and KNOW that God is at work on your behalf and He will never leave you or forsake you.
