Where are true hidden treasures discovered?

I think of my family and friends as hidden treasures sent by God, but God's true hidden treasure is to be discovered within the pages of the HOLY BIBLE, His Word. After my youngest sister's death, I discovered a scripture that became hidden treasure to me. As the Good Book says in 1 Thessalonians verses 4:16-18, I know I’ll see Mom and my sister again. The New International Version (NIV) of The Holy Bible has one of my favorite verses because it provides peace of mind when loved ones pass:
. . . and the dead in Christ will rise first: After that, we who are still alive and left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.

These words are true hidden treasure sent from God to give us hope and joy and encourage us to encourage one another with His Word. May a cloud of peace fill you. As the Kingdom Heirs sing in their new song, "Good News From the Graveyard," Mom and Lisa are not there; the graves are only empty tombs. They're living their heavenly life with Jesus. For those of us who're still living our earthly lives, God's Word, the Bible, is an instruction manual or guide for life. His Word is the true hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. Dig deep for your treasure within the pages of the Bible and see what true hidden treasure you discover for yourself.

Blessings and prayers, In Christ,In His Service

Just Sunday we were singing a song about how Jesus raised the dead and the thought occurred to me that we will all be raised. Maybe not like Lazarus, but someday our bodies will rise, too.

And of course, as you said, I believe the spirit is already with Jesus. I'm so glad God gave us His word to comfort us.

Kay Day,

I'm so glad He gave us His Word for comfort, too. After losing my mother and my sister, I needed them. They helped me through the grieving process.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings,
Barb
