An Ocean of Treasure

My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.       –Proverbs 2:1-5

“God’s word is a treasure worth laying up, and there is no laying it up safely but in our hearts; if we have it only in our houses and hands, enemies may take it from us; if only in our heads, our memories may fail us: but if our hearts be delivered into the mould of it, and the impressions of it remain on our souls, it is safe.” –Matthew Henry

An Ocean of Treasure

God’s word is a vast ocean
Filled with sunken treasures
Wondrous sights to behold
Ah, to dive amidst the serenity
Frolic among the azure crests of comfort
Waves of scripture washing over me
Cleansing my heart
Renewing my mind
Bringing strength to my soul
Lifting my Spirits
Ebbing and flowing thoughts
Gently caress
Tides churning within the darkest parts
Sifting and settling
Fathomless peace inhabits
Jewels of life most precious
