I LOST A TREASURE ON EARTH
I waited awhile to write about this. Any sooner & you would've picked up on my frustration. Waiting allowed me to pray, forgive, ask for forgiveness & find closure. Now, I hope you only get encouraged...
Several years ago, when we said, "Yes!" to church-employment, we said "Bye, bye" to our boat. We sold our 38-ft Bertram to a family-friend. Well, we got stiffed. Never got one penny. I'll be honest, it took me awhile to get to the place where I could let go of it. I had to really, really pray about it. I had to find verses on forgiveness. I had to press through the pain of being robbed & labor to get to the other side of it. But on the other side was a powerful lesson: He has our boat that I can't take away. But I have a treasure in Heaven that he can never take away. :)
