Gold and diamonds are what people crave for,
Beauty and glamour are what the vain seek for,
Power and position are what the greedy fight for,
But true people of God – yearn for the Greatest treasure
On earth and in Heaven –
Our Lord Jesus Christ.
I have that treasure that’s mine for ever.
He’s there behind, beside, above and around me.
Far more priceless than all the gold in the world.
Precious beyond measure, than all the pearls found in oysters.
A treasure that I cannot part with ,
For all the pomp and show in the world.
One that imparts a great peace within,
One Whose presence I feel incessantly
Through joy and pain, thick and thin.
One that never lets me hunger and thirst
As He provides the Bread of Life and Springs of Living water
One that nothing in the world can separate me from.
No depth, nor height, nor width nor breadth—
With a love, glorious and supernal, selfless and unconditional.
One that spreads a strong fragrance in me and lights up my life.
The dark corners of my life are illuminated,
The blemishes, spots and wrinkles are cleansed,
The unenergized and feeble parts are rejuvenated.
This Treasure is for all Eternity
This treasure dwells within me,
Every nook and corner of my heart needs to be filled with this treasure.
The core of my being should be permeated with it.
Every breath that I take should be oxygenated with it.
Even if I gain the whole world, but do not possess this treasure,
My living will be in vain.
I am richly blessed with CHRIST.
I live because He lives,
“MY MOST PRECIOUS AND TREASURED TREASURE.”
