Within my heart is a treasure-trove
that God alone placed there
Deep within He buried there
all I would need to prepare...
For those times that are so rocky
that trouble my very soul
I draw forth faith to stand upon
that which makes me whole.
His Love is also placed there
on which I may draw upon
When I feel like mine is depleted
I find His is never gone!
So today as I greet a new beginning
I will draw from Him within
All I need to greet this day
He will always cause me to win!
(c) 2014 Karen Langford Brown
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that
the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and
not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not
crushed, perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but
not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always
carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the
life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body."
2 Corinthians 4: 7-10
