Let if Fade

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
- Luke 12:34


So often i find myself holding onto the things other than the Lord. My heart finds treasure in my marriage, my little blue walled house with the roses out front, our savings (or my heart stresses with the lack there of), a job.

These may be good things but will they keep my focus in the right place? Will they keep my heart secure and strong when hard times come?

Our hearts can so easily be swayed when our eyes aren't on the Lord.
Earlier in the chapter God tells us not to worry about these things. He says He knows what we need and He promises to provide what we need.

Check out God's track record in keeping promises. I challange you to find one time that He broke His promise! You won't be able to find it because He never has! Not even once!

God doesn't change. So when He promises this time to take care of those who seek after Him, what do you think He will do? =)

I'm praying that I'll desire the Lord and seek after Him as my treasure and not the things in this life that will fade.

"Have you been walking on a surface that's uncertain?

Have you helped yourself to everything that's empty?

You can't live this way too long.

There's more than this, more than this.

Have you been standing on your own feet too long?

Have you been looking for a place where you belong?

You can rest, you will find rest.


Let this old life crumble, let it fade.

Let this new life offer be your saving grace.

Let this old life crumble, let it fade, let it fade.

 
Have you been holding on to what this world has offered?

Have you been giving in to all these masquerades?

It will be gone, forever gone.


Let this old life crumble, let it fade.

Let this new life offer be your saving grace.

Let this old life crumble, let it fade, let it fade.

 
Are you carrying the weight too much? running from the call?

 
You can rest, you will find rest.

 
Let this old life crumble, let it fade.

Let this new life offered be your saving grace.

Let this old life crumble, let it fade, let it fade."

I find myself worrying these days since my Mom is having some health issues. I need to remember who's she is and let God handle His daughter as he loves her so much.

Thanks for the reminder.
I know it is not exactly where this post is going but it is where it took me...

These are such true words.

As we look to see the direction we are headed as a country or with a disobedient son, etc...God is on His throne, and we just need to hang on to Him.

You are right...we need to take rest and look up to Him for He is there to take care of us. Since my grandfather's death, I have been very restless and worried; even when I know that is is in Him that I need to take solace, I find myself down with anxiety. It's difficult, yet, I am still trying.

This so applies to me, because I am such a worrier. I'm constantly getting stressed about a LACK of security in work/money/etc. I need to focus on this. Because of course I'm finding a lack of security and a source of stress in that stuff. It's not the Lord. If I put my focus and treasure in him, there's not need to feel insecure or stressed. He's good for all eternity!
