"Treasures" by Martha Snell Nicholson

  Love this poem, and its so true. It's a good reminder that I think we too often need. WAY too often I find myself in this place. But God, through His Word (and music), brings me back to Him, and says, "Hey I'm all you need. Delight in Me, and I will give you the desires of your heart. You can't find your desires, happiness, or peace anywhere else. I am ALL you need." And lately I've been finding that our in incredible ways!! 

One by one He took them from me,
All the things I valued most, 
until I was empty-handed;
Every glittering toy was lost. 

And I walked earths highways, grieving,
In my rags and poverty. 
Till I heard His voice inviting,
"Lift your empty hands to Me!" 

So I held my hand toward heaven, 
And He filled them up with a store
Of his own transcendent riches,
Till they could contain no more. 

And at last I comprehended
With my stupid mind and dull,
That God COULD not pour His riches
Into hands already full! 

Ps. 37:4 
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
