Welcome! I am so excited you have chosen to join me on this journey! This blog was created with young ladies in mind who are pursuing a relationship with God. Whether you fit into this category or not, all are welcome to be a part of seeking our purest treasure.
So what is our purest treasure? The scripture inspiration for this blog is found in Matthew 6:21, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (NIV) Whatever we value or treasure shows us where our heart truly lies. The word pure means "not mixed or adulterated with any other substance or material. Free of any contamination" (Google definitions). We all need a pure treasure that is not contaminated by the world or mixed with other outside forces. Our purest treasure should be God and our relationship with him. He is our treasure and what we should be seeking every day of our lives.
It is not an easy task to seek this purest of treasures because we are bombarded by everything in life around us. We are constantly fed the things of this world through media, books, magazines, and even our friends. But there is a way to keep the purest of treasures, and that is seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness (Matthew 6:33). We seek first the kingdom of God by changing our mindset to think on Godly things (see Philippians 4:8). Once we start changing the way we think, we start seeing life through the lenses of Christ. Eventually, we will find ourselves seeking the things that are most important to Him.
I want to love what He loves, I want to seek what He seeks, I want to go where He goes, and I want His passions to be my passions. So join me on this journey though bible studies and thoughts of the day as we pursue after our purest treasure and learn more about who He is and who we are in Him.
