Treasure Hunter By Brenda Drake

a focus on ephesians 2 v8

            We spend our lives gathering treasures that pleasured us at one time but later we dispose of them without a backward glance.  Anything to do with God and His Word is kept safe within and is a pleasure and a treasure that lasts forever.

Treasure Hunter

Treasure hunters and pleasure hunters both sound the same.
But one can fade away while one remains.
Treasures are kept safe, valued high within.
Pleasures are easily spent many times in sin.
Treasures weigh heavy, and pleasures are like air,
What was pleasing before you may find is no longer there.
Be a treasure-hunter, search and you will find,
Deep, moving heart-healing pleasure left for you at times.
God’s Word is a treasure-to-pleasure that will forever stay;
It is God’s gift; He planned it that way.
Delve in the Scriptures see God’s love for man.
Dig deep and God’s pleasure will bless your land.
God’s treasure-hunters find what others refuse to see,
But they will be sure to share their discoveries.
Have fun in your diggings I am at your side.
I love to share the joys of Salvation with My bride.
Come let us go again to the writings of long ago,
That will be a lasting forever-treasure that pleasures the soul.

Matthew 6:19-21
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Psalms 16:11
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
