Where Your Heart Is... There Is Yo

Your Heart Is Where Your Treasure Is!


I thought that I could make it on my own.

Till that day when I lost my job and home.


There were things in life I took for granted.

Till that one day, when all was “unplanted.”


There were many things that I had enjoyed.

Till that one day, when it was all destroyed.


I cried and wept as I see it all disappear.

But something that I discovered became clear.


No matter how many times I sought pleasure.

Where my heart is, there is also my treasure.


The treasures I thought would bring fulfillment.

Never did they bring true joy and contentment!


I began to pray like I had never done before…

God was what I needed...  I needed HIM more!


The love of God spoke to me, as I knelt down...

And soon, I felt HIS presence all around!


I lost everything in life, that I thought I needed!

But, through Jesus, my life is now completed!


Jesus brought a heavenly treasure that I never knew

He filled my emptiness, and made me “brand new!”


He came to where I was!  I was empty within...

And gave me the victory to live life AGAIN!


The treasure in Christ brought healing to my mind!

I love him so much!  He’s so gentle and kind!


The treasure in Christ, is a wonderful delight.

This eternal treasure…  Can be yours TONIGHT!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
