Panning for what is Precious
Sometimes all you can do is interpret your surroundings.
You see the X and you know there has to be something of value
So you walk like someone who has already been given the entire treasure, you bring all the tools you have…. because you know it brings Him joy.
But the crazy thing about the journey is it won’t always be to what we thought we were going to get.
Yet the showing up… the willingness to gather all that He has for you… it’s all obedience. There will be reward in this.
As you pan for what is precious… you may find what you came for is not what you will leave with.
Because if what happened 2000 years ago can forgive you of every sin you have yet to commit…. and it can.
It can win every battle you have yet to fight…
It can also win every treasure you have yet to find.
this “Joy of the Lord being your strength”, it comes from you enjoying the people you are around.
The community of family and friends He has picked out of the whole world to place you in the midst.
This also brings Him Joy.
So many things to be thankful for… but can I share a few….
