Here we are at the end of Matthew chapter 6 – Matthew 6:19-34 and we find more on where we choose to live our lives. It is the battle of the mind. Will be choose to focus on everyday needs, on the thing we think will make our lives happier? On the miseries that don’t?
Or will we stop and raise our eyes, our hearts, our lives to heaven? Its all a matter of perspective. Jesus says Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. So surely if our desire if for Him, then that’s where our treasure will be – and all the rest will no longer be a burden to us:
The world said You are not who you say you are You have died a criminals death But he says: it was my life to lay down and it’s my life to take back up.
The world says What has god ever done for us? But he says Look how far out I was prepared to push The boat out for you
The world says I can make it on my own He says That’s not what you were made for
And you wonder why you only ever See glimpses of a half broken heaven Instead of the perfect glory You were made for
We say Look at all the mess He says Look instead at my Forever loving Deeply compassionate Perfection.
