"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
These verses kept playing through my mind after my MIL came to visit us last night. She had gotten corn out of their freezer that had turned rancid after the last power outage we had. They decided to clean out the freezer and get rid of stuff. She had ice that she wanted to store in our freezer. She went to put it in our freezer and came in to let us know that our freezer door was part way open and that most of our meat was soft.
Adventure begins! We had lost some of the food in our freezer during the power outage, but had taken the meat to my parents and were able to save it. At this point, part of the meat was able to be saved. My parents agreed that we thought that the meat needed to be cooked and then refrozen to have the best chance of success.
I just kept thinking that we can do our best to prepare for things, but ultimately, we have no control over what happens here on earth. Anyone can rob us of our treasure that we have here on the earth. Only our treasures that we have in heaven will last. I need these reminders...a lot!
Here is my husband cooking up hamburger for the first time. I think that he is a pro now!
When I got up this morning, I read in my Bible. Part of my reading for the day was from Habakkuk 3. Verses 17-19 say the following:
"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls (Or no food in the freezer): Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments."
Thank You God for being patient in reminding me things that I should already know!
What has God reminded you of recently?
