Her sunlit silky straight hair bounced delightfully on her shoulders as we strolled around the neighborhood circle. Her stroll was more of a skip-like dance as she zipped by grass patches neatly trimmed and tidy.
She paused briefly as her eye caught a glimpse of golden treasure sparkling in the sunlight. Wide-eyed and giddy, she bent down and picked up her treasure. Clinching her fist, she held the new found treasure tightly.
Her excitement bubbled over like a fountain without containment as she gently opened her palms to reveal the treasure she had found.
"Mom! I have a surprise for you!", she exclaimed with joy! "Come see what I have for you in my hands!"
She opened her hands to announce her precious find. Within her hands lay a dry, crinkled dandelion. However, to her, this dandelion was not a tattered yellow weed, it was a dazzling treasure miraculously found growing amid the boring green patches.
"The Lord will hold you in His hand for all to see--a splendid crown in the hand of God." Isaiah 62:3
The Lord holds you in His hand. You are His treasure, "a splendid crown", securely fastened in His hand.
You may feel like a dry weed, but He doesn't see you as crinkled and tattered. He sees beauty. His creation. His treasure.
Today, I want to offer you a chance to win this beautiful wallet I purchased at the Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference last weekend. The conference was amazing and I wish I could have taken all of you along with me (how fun would that be!). However, since that isn't possible, I wanted to bring you something back.
Isn't it cute!!

Thanks for sharing - sometimes I have to stop and remind myself that my children's "treasures" are not "weeds" to them and I need to act accordinglyReplyDelete
and being reminded that God sees me as His Treasure helps put things back in the right perspective!
Love love LOVE the analogy of the dandelion being treasure. I feel like a tattered weed at times, but in the eyes of the Lord ~ I am treasure at all times <3 Thank you Sue!ReplyDelete
