I went home that first night with several hundred dollars. I could not believe the gold mine that I had found! I had no clue of the price tag attached to it! I had no idea of the years of tears, fears, anxiety, scars, distress and damage that it was going to eventually cause me.~ (SURRENDERED SHOWGIRL)
What are you spending your time searching for? How far would you GO to find it? If you are looking through the lens of the naked eye or even binoculars, All that Glitters Is Not Gold! Like foolish love you may engage in the chase only to find an empty mine. It is Fools Gold! It’s shine and luster radiate only a superficial resemblance of Gold. To look for it is like a romantic race searching and searching for a long lost treasure. Where does true treasure exist? Will you travel the Globe or will you be still and look deep inside yourself? Will you search for it in others, things, places, items, relationships, or achievements? They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD’S wrath. They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it, for it had made them stumble into sin”.~ Ezekiel 7:19 NIV.
I have searched ALL over, every stone overturned and came up empty handed with nothing. I have found Nothing in cheap fool’s gold to compare with pure gold. I NEVER found gold in a bottle, drugs, an immoral/outrageous lifestyle, money, houses, cars, traveled places or academic achievements! I NEVER found pure gold that any amount of money could buy! The pure gold is only found when the heart is tested, this is where all the treasure lies. It’s within the broken vessel, the heart of man. The real Gold Mine is found in a relationship with Christ. I don’t know about you but I have searched the world over and traveled far and wide and come up with the obvious conclusion: I’ve found Nothing else to compare or satisfy. This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. they will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, “They are my people”, and they will say, “The Lord is our God.”~ Zechariah 13:9 NIV.
This treasure awaits and is everlasting! It is a treasure worth storing up! Anything less than the pure gold found in Jesus will leave the mine hollow and empty. Have you found your Gold Mine?…… How far will you GO to find it?….Min. Dana McCartney Candillo
