"We can only be said to be alive in the moments when our hearts are conscious of treasure"
These words from an unknown source challenge us to awaken to life and the treasures it holds. Most of us live on the edge of life, half aware...rushing to the future...the appointment at 5:00, dinner at 7:00, the paper due tomorrow or the next. Conscious living gets lost in the blur; Spirit living gets lost in the details.
The I AM Christ never lost sight of the treasure of the moment: never lost sight of those hiding in trees or at the noon-day well; never lost touch with those lost in the crowd seeking to graze the edge of his garment with faith. Always, He was conscious of treasure; always fully present, living and breathing each moment...in touch with His father...in touch with the world.
This week take time to feed your spirit by pausing to feel and see and hear what is really in your day. Taste the precious gift of the moment in which God intersects your life in human cloth and dances with you in the wind. Let the song of His Spirit become the song of your heart springing to life, suddenly conscious of treasure.
