“There’s more: God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool? Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.” Psalm 119: 11-14 Message

Ever read scripture as if you were on a treasure hunt?

Ever run to those pages with joyful expectancy seeking nuggets of encouragement and Truth?

Ever dive deep, like a sea voyager, on a quest to find beauty resting on the ocean’s floor?

Ever approach the God-breathed  (2 Tim 3:16) like a child filled with wonder, eagerly looking for gift-filled eggs on Easter Day?

Ever uncover delight in the most surprising of places?

“My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:18
