I remember being enamored with the idea of a Treasure Map. A map I could look at to see what temptations were close and to keep my eyes on the prize- A Relationship With God. In Proverbs: 3:2 verse 21 (The Message) it says:
"Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life; don’t for a minute lose sight of them. They’ll keep your soul alive and well, they’ll keep you fit and attractive. You’ll travel safely, you’ll neither tire nor trip. You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry, you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep. No need to panic over alarms or surprises, or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner, Because God will be right there with you; he’ll keep you safe and sound. "
The glorious thing about my Jesus is that He promises us an internal treasure map, in the Holy Spirit through the Wisdom of the Lord that will guide me each step of the way in the Ways of Wisdom!!
This page still makes me smile, I used coffee stain and pastels to bring the aged look of a treasure map!
