SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS



The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

SEEDS OF STRIFE

RICH MAN/POOR MAN/HEAVEN/HELL

JESUS IS MISSING

PERFECT VERSUS IMPERFECT

ABBA FATHER

THE UNDERDOG

BROKEN CRAYONS

TEN LOCKS

SOLDIERS

THE MYSTERY OF THE KHATAN

THE RETURN

PORTRAIT OF A PREACHER

THE RAVEN

THE MYSTERY OF MASADA

THE MEASURE OF FAITH

OMEGA JOY

Treasure Box

 Everyone has a treaure box
Stored with  the things they love.
Mine is stacked high with the Word of God
And protected by The Dove.
 
No one can steal my treasure box
Or the treasure stored within...
I keep a special verse up front
To ward off any type of sin.
 
Of course, we will be tempted
Just as long as we abide
In these clay-filled earthen bodies.
That fact cannot be denied.
 
But we can fight off temptation
The same way Jesus did...
He quoted from the Word of God
And the Word did as was bid.
 
The Lord, in His humanity,
Depended on the Holy Ghost.
Much the same as we do now...
That power's still inforced.
 
We're not to lay up treasures here
Where moth and rust destroy...
But send our treasures to the Throne...
Where we are set to soon enjoy
 
An eternity of pleasures
Our imagination cannot grasp...
For what God has planned for those he loves
Would cause us all to gasp.
 
How beautiful are Words of Christ...
The ones embossed in red...
To represent the Savior's heart
And the Precious Blood He shed.
 
 Sweet Jesus is my treasure
And He is my treasure box...
He's stored within the heart of me
And He doesn't require locks.

~~ Dedicated to Joan~~
 
~~AUTHOR'S NOTE~~
This poem was inspired by a post on facebook.
My longtime Christian friend, Joan Quick, from
Albuquerque, N. M. wrote about a Treasure Box
...
and I grabbed that.
                  

 
                 

Mark 10:21
Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, "One thing you lack
: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure
in heaven; and come, follow Me."

Proverbs 16:8
Better is a little with righteousness Than great income with injustice
