“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy,and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21
This verse is ringing true to me now more than ever. Time wasted on worrying about money, stuff, clothes, the way we look, having the right thing, the right couch is just not worth it. Live the life God intended you to now. Relationships are what matters, giving your life away is what matters, bettering others lives is what matters, being hospitable is what matters, being selfless is what matters.
Our dear dear friends lost their house in a fire this past weekend. It was one of the most horrific things I've seen. Their home was a home open to our entire community. They were the most sacrificial with their space and it was a home where many people grew up, learned more about God and felt loved. My best friend told me that God has been telling her over and over "but I still remain". It's true, He does, and all of the work He did in that home still remains.
Please pray for my friends. They love the Lord with all of their heart. It devastates me that this would happen to people like them, but I know that the Lord remains and He remains victorious.
