Treasure & Thorns
Isn't it a wonder that apart from Jesus, my greatest treasure is my biggest thorn? That which I will fight and change for is also that which distracts me from the unseen work for my Heavenly Father. That which I willingly labour for competes with the toil of sowing and reaping that is before me. That I may lay down my life for such treasure surely contradicts any supposed full surrender of my life to Christ. My biggest thorn. Paul asked for it to be removed 3 times. God's answer remains the same for us both. I trust it will be given; His grace for His work.
