Where does Your Treasure Lie? – Saints and Scripture Sunday

“For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” Luke 12:34

I was challenged by these words today. I felt personally asked, “Where does your heart lie?” Truth be told, it hasn’t been lying where it should be.

Why is it so easy to get caught up in all the busyness and craziness of everyday life? Why is it that our relationship with God is always the first to go by the wayside? (For me, at least.) Even when I make time for prayer, it is often distracted and rushed through, just to get done.

What I want is a deep, meaningful relationship with the Lord. This is only possible if I take the time for deep meaningful conversations with Him. I have follow my own suggestions for taking time for prayer, to listen to Him, and to let the Holy Spirit guide me.

That’s my resolution for this week. To focus on deepening my relationship with the Lord. To make the time to pray and focus my heart on the Lord.

  1. When I saw this post, I had to smile! This morning at Mass, when these words were spoken, I looked around, surrounded by my family, in a favorite church of mine, and just KNEW. It’s taken me years to figure this out, but I’m surrounded by my true treasures, every day, from sun-up til sundown.

    Thanks for the reminder to take time to pray — this is something that I struggle with as well.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing!

    That is so beautiful, Dianna! Our families are truly precious treasures!

  3. I understand what you mean. That probably happens to all of us at times, and I’m still learning to make God the center of my life rather than trying to just fit Him into my schedule.
