Seeking you

 

Lord,

I’d rather spend 
My whole life 
Seeking you 
Without success,  

Than search 
For any other ‘god’ –
And find!

Inner peace

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it! (Matthew 13:45-6; NLT).

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field (Matthew 13:44; NLT).

The peace I give is a gift the world cannot give (John 14:27; NLT).

 

Father,
I’d sell everything I own
To buy your greatest treasure –
Inner peace.

But it’s well-hidden,
And I’ve sought it all my life
Without success.

In any case,
Peace simply can’t be bought,
For it’s a blessing you alone can give.
