Treasures in Him

Brandon and I went to dinner with some friends last night.  He always tells me that  I talk too much, but there's nothing I can do to fix that.  =/   I'm only quiet when I'm not comfortable(or have nothing to say).  Anyways, we had a great dinner with N&N.  We got home a little after 9pm and I took one Tylenol PM and started reading the book of Job (I forgot how much that man was tested.)  By 10pm I was actually tired and able to fall asleep.  This morning I woke up feeling great!  Rested.  I am rested.  Thank you, Tylenol PM!

Yesterday upset me a little (see here), but it's over now.  I apologize for any whining in yesterday's post.  Remembering that God is in control is not as easy as it looks.  Also, reminding myself daily that everything I have is His isn't too simple either.  God has provided so much for us.  

Matthew 6:19-21
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heavenwhere moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. NIV
19-21"Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. The Message

We have spent a great amount of money in our journey to become parents.  It's hard not to visualize that number and think of all the other things you could have done with it.  Yesterday, I was selfish; there's no other way to explain it.  

Thank you, God, for providing for us.  
Please help me to see all of Your blessings 
and build up my treasures in You 
and not earthly things.

  1. Beautifully stated. Those are things I try to focus on during my IF struggles too - definitely easier said than done. I just keep trying. : )


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
