Earthly Treasures ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I once set my sights,
on worldly things . . .
hoping true happiness
to me they would bring.

But, they soon corroded,
and all turned into rust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I put my trust.

I once relied on people,
to bring me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love I could treasure.

For, too often my bubble,
they would only bust
tis why it is in God
I have come to trust.

I once put my trust,
in people and things
but, now I look to God . . .
for the joy salvation brings!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
