Your Heart: Can You Find It?

Matthew 6:21-Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

If my heart was buried 10,000 leagues under the sea, could a diver find it? If my heart was covered by the multiple layers of an avalanche, could the snow patrol find it? If my heart became shipwrecked on a desert island, only to be washed over by the tide, could excavators find it? For if they cannot locate the origin of my heart’s whereabouts, so shall it be lost forever.


Hence, where is your heart? Is it lost beneath the rubble this world seeks to heap on your body? Is it too unbearable to deal with the cravings of your inhibitions? Is the glint and glimmer of the watch, car, or diamonds robbing your sensibility? Thus, may we look to store our treasure within a place that is eternal, to which no man/woman could steal from nor could rust or deterioration destroy. For if my treasures are stored within heaven, then my eyes are focused on HIM and there the desires of my heart shall be. Amen
