Seize the Day~


Matthew 13:44-46 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” Rise and shine, beloved! How is your morning going so far? Have you embraced this beautiful day with joy? Or are you wrestling with a negative attitude, instead? You know, you don’t have time to waste on negative attitudes. God gave us such a beautiful world in which to live! I know, there are so many horrible things going on in life today – perhaps some of those things are even going on in your life – but you have discovered a great treasure and you don’t want to waste one minute when you could be rejoicing over it instead! You have found a treasure in this great field called earth. You have found a beautiful pearl of great price. What I’m talking about is just this….you have found the Lord! If you have already given your life to Him, you have a place in His kingdom. What awaits us on the other side of this earthly life is beyond our wildest dreams, precious friend. Just days before my sister Cindy died, the Lord gave her a priceless gift. She was allowed to hear some of the music in heaven. Many of the people in my family are musicians and music is very important to us. What Cindy heard that night was the sound of voices singing “all of the notes at the same time” according to her. She turned to our sister Linda and asked her if she could hear it. She then told Linda that she was going to love the music in heaven, because Linda is a singer. In her experience, the Lord also showed Cindy a beautiful choir, wearing robes that she said shimmered. What a gift! What a privilege to catch a glimpse – and an earful – of what was awaiting my precious Cindy. Dear sweet friend, the Lord has such beautiful pearls to share with you. Don’t miss any of them! Father, sometimes I have a hard time finding words to tell You how I feel about You. Sometimes, just sitting in Your presence, waiting on You and being still before Your throne is the greatest thing I can do. How I love You, God. You are the most priceless Treasure of all. Reign in me, God. I love You. In Jesus’ Name…
