'THIS TREASURE...IS FROM GOD.' 2 CORINTHIANS 4:7 NIV
Do you know you have treasure within you? God out it there. It's in your unique qualities, plus the fire in your soul. Life may have thrown cold water on that fire but God can rekindle it. Note, this treasure within you 'is from God.' And what He owns He protects, He nurtures, and will use to his glory. But God is a wise businessman; when He invests He expects a return!
It's said that the wealthiest spot on this planet is not the oilfields of Kuwait or the diamond mines of South Africa. No, the richest deposits lie in your local cemetery. Buried beneath those sacred grounds are dreams that never came pass, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, ideas that were never shared, inventions that were never designed, plans that never got beyond the drawing board of the mind, and purposes that were never fulfilled. Only a tiny percentage of those who live in this planet will discover and fulfill their true potential. Do you want to be one of them? Ask yourself: who am I? Why did God put me here? How much potential do I have? How can I maximize my ability for His glory? Within the answer to these questions lie the keys to a fulfilled life.
If you haven't found your life's purpose yet, talk to God. Everything...finds its purpose in him (Colossians 1:16 TM). Before you spoke your first word or took your first step, God had a plan for your life. You say, but I have failed so badly. Maybe, but it's amazing what God can do with a broken life when you give Him all the pieces!
