Serendipity Sunday: Building Up A Nest Egg.....

Serendipity: An instance of making a delightful and unexpected discovery.
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

~Matthew 6:20-21~

"Every time you affirm your trust in Me, you put a coin into My treasury. Thus you build up equity in preparation for days of trouble. I keep safely in My heart all trust invested in Me, with interest compounded continuously. The more your trust Me, the more I enable you to do so.

Practice trusting Me during quiet days, when nothing much seems to be happening. Then when storms come, your trust balance will be sufficient to see you through. Store up for yourself treasure in heaven, through placing your trust in Me. This practice will keep you in My Peace."

Excerpt from "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young

This weeks delightful discovery came through the reading of the above passage. How awesome it is to think that while my earthly bank account balance may fluctuate and there may be little interest gained, my heavenly account keeps building with interest compounded continuously! We are living in some financially unstable times with uncertainty for many in the job market. I am glad to know the trustworthy Banker who will meet all my needs!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

Perfect timing! I am sitting here at my desk figuring out my tithing for the year. Right now I am tithing by faith and know the jobs will soon follow.

Hello Miss Sandy!
Thank you for your compliments regarding my blog. Of course you are welcome to put my blog on your blogroll. If you want to link a photo you are welcome too, though I do appreciate it if you would give me credits, but as I understood it should be part of a 'linking', well of course you have my permission for that. Nice to meet you and have a great day!

Thank-you for the scripture and words of comfort that help me remember Who is really in charge and He does not make mistakes. The God who made the world can certainly take care of His people.

Great thought. It's really true. Hopefully, I'm making regular deposits in my spiritual bank account with the Lord.

God bless,
