Experiencing God Day By Day:
Infinite Treasure
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.(2 Corinthians 4:7)
*
Knowing God and having Him reside within you is a treasure of infinite value. Jesus likened this value to that of a perfect pearl. The collector would readily sell everything he had in order to possess this one matchless pearl (Matt. 13:45Ė46). Your relationship with God places an immeasurable value on your life. The treasures of Godís wisdom and knowledge are available to you through Christ (Col. 2:2Ė3). His love now fills you. His incomprehensible peace surrounds your heart and mind (Phil. 4:7). When Jesus dwells in your life, everything available to Christ dwells within you (Eph. 3:19).
*
Paul was comparing our lives with the clay pots commonly used in his day. The contents of the earthen vessels, not the containers themselves, were of great value. The jars would become chipped and broken and would deteriorate over time, but nobody thought of the jaróthey were interested in its contents. Paul noted that our great possession is that which God has placed within us. When people focus on us they see a frail, imperfect, and deteriorating vessel. Nothing that comes from our flesh is worthy of praise. Our bodies are aging and losing strength (2 Cor. 4:16). Only as we allow God to fill us and renew our inner self will people see a treasure of immeasurable worth.
*
Donít focus on outward appearances and physical strength, for these deteriorate. Rather, allow the Holy Spirit to convince you of the infinite treasure that is within you because of Godís presence.

lol-Thank ye Sir-- Doing good, this fine evening--having a hot cup of coffee, watching the freezing temps and snow-- and a hot bowl of chilly, thanks for asking.
It seems this time on earth is so short---you look at your self in the mirror and you see this light colored hair, use to be dark black, just the other day,--you comb it to the side, and you use to be the 'cats meow'-- now your just wanting the 9 lives again--
You see wrinkles around the eyes--where you know you use to smile a lot, now you just bow your head and tip your hat quickly, as to not show the bald coming--- lol
You use to laugh so hard, your stomach was so sore--now it is just a ha ha under your breath and your mouth is still closed.
Use to give the gals a wink----now you just blink both eyes at them, and go on.
LOL--AGING is going to happen, and it just seemed like yesterday, you thought old age was just going to happen to someone else or just your Mom and Dad--- Life goes by faster , weeks zoom by and years zoom by.
Aww! but the good news of AGING and passing on, is that we have another LIFE coming and it is so much better!!
I am not what you call old yet, but I do know it will be---so I am enjoying my life, laugh hard and loud , say HI to everyone that passes, even if I don't get a HI back, Life is great especially if you carry Jesus everywhere you go---
I dunno what some on here mean, that don't KNOW Jesus. I guess we can just 'shake our heads' and go on .
Thanks for listening----HA HA !

Today's Prayer
..."Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes" (Revelation 18:4). Oh God, what a wicked world we live in. You created it to be a beautiful place; a place where you would come and fellowship with your beautiful creation, but humans disobeyed and gave in to the deceitful voice of Satan. While I am in this world, please help me to not take place in the sins of the world; to resist temptation; to rebuke the voice of Satan and run to you for shelter. Thank you, God, for loving me. I want to please you and fellowship with you. Protect me, please. In Jesusí name. Amen.
Prime time with God

That's because she is a woman. The balls you see on your dates don't belong to women.
You see, women have other private parts.

Hey SP,
I like this part and it is so true.
ďAww! but the good news of AGING and passing on, is that we have another LIFE coming and it is so much better!!Ē

It reminds me of the saying that without change there would be no butterflies.

Only we will live with God for eternity.

Hope things are good in your part of the world.

Hey L Lover,
So your husbands operation is this Friday. What are they doing for him, if you donít mind talking about it? I will pray for him, you and your family.

Iím good, how are you and yours doing with your husbandís illness and all?

I know you care, thank you. It was heart breaking but with time, knowing they are in a better place and that I will see them again itís ok. It wasnít the end for them I just will not be able to see them for awhile. They are with God, I will join them sooner or later.

:)ing at you Sister,
HFN

Ya. Most folks can't realize that time is just a method of measuring relations confined to the 3 dimensions we perceive as reality...and that it is"law", when it is not. It is how they have been taught to "see".

True DR.

Iím good. How about you, you doing ok?

Wonít don any good to try and not keep it real. Life has a way of waking you up and proving reality to you. Making you realize that, like everyone, it can happen to you too. That we are not as infallible as we sometimes think we are.
