treasure… in unexpected places…

I found a treasure today… in an unexpected place…

Taking out trash from the shop… out back in the alley…

Stepping back in… there it was… a painted rock… on the threshold… in the corner of the doorway…

It made me smile… I picked it up… saying… This one I’m keeping…

You see… I found another painted rock before… but it was of a stop-light… in front of our shop… I smiled… at the find… but didn’t consider it a treasure worth keeping…

But this one… it was different… being a cross and all…

Sort of a confirmation of what we put on the shop door this week… telling all who enter what is most important in this place…

Jesus…

We honor Him with our ministry of ladies Bible study… found in an unexpected place… a shop downtown…

That’s what He does… hide in the alley… being found as you take out the trash… and in the middle of your day… He might just show up… as you go about your way…

He is a treasure… found in unexpected places…

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. …”

Matthew 13:44 ESV

Have you found Him in an unexpected place…?

I’d love to know where… share it in the comment box at the bottom of the post…
