Hidden Treasures

Posted on Updated on

The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field…”

Matthew 13:44

After months ~ I was inspired.

My husband and I started talking about the meaning of the above verse which was the topic of the children’s story he read to our two boys before bed. We enjoyed a wonderful conversation of mutual sharing and edification but in the midst of it I discovered a spark of passion – a passion over a book I hadn’t cracked in months.

hear the Word often in sermons and songs, I share the Word daily in life lessons and memory verses to my children, I pray the Word I have stored within me but I haven’t picked up the Book and read the Word in…I can’t remember how long… and that night something came alive in me…again.

For many years now I have identified myself as a writer (though I haven’t written anything new in years).  I have lacked direction and focus. I am a stay at home mother of three children under 3 and a half – all still in diapers.  Needless to say I am distracted and busy – I love it! It is a life I have prayed for.  I haven’t dedicated much time to writing and frankly haven’t really missed it.

Yet in the back of my mind I hear an echo of a promise,

a prayer,

a prophetic word that I am to write.

It whispers,“Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets… Habakkuk 2:2a

I have found a treasure, it isn’t the first time that I found it – though I find I am excited as if it were new to me.

The Word of God… Jesus… (John 1:1) The Kingdom of Heaven…

So here I am – starting this blog and taking steps in becoming who I am and who He has called me to be.
