Nuggets Of Pure Gold

Mankind toils and labours to find something of value in the mines of this world , but God sees the true value of man in our hearts.

In Darkened Mines




Many men in olden times - have spent their weary lives - toiling
Endlessly in darkened mines - to gain the earth's deep - hidden gems -
In hope to make .the Victor's find -
Of precious - golden seams

But - many that have panned for gold - in the putrid waters of this world -
Have scraped a meager living where - they barely gained
A Pauper's share - from all their
Hard days toil .

Such is the way of humankind - who seek and seek - but rarely find - the
Golden crumbs - that lift them from the ashen pile - and deepest grind - and
Turn their bitterness and gloom - into a smile - and
Gladdened mind .

Only God Can Seek And Find


And yet - within the life of man - there lies a dormant - life-filled
Span - where only God can seek and find - the
Precious seam amidst the grime - of
Sinful - broken man .

Then - with the hammer of His Word - He breaks away the hardened
Shell - and melts away the dross until - all that
Remains - is His perfected will - and
Purest gold .

Oh may it not be said my friend - that only fool's gold could
Be found - with none to mold into a
Precious crown - to grace a
Kingly head .

The Value Of A Human's Worth .



Only God can ever truly know - the value of a human's worth - though
Dug from mines of deepest earth- and wretched - bitter toil - But
He can also see the heart - and make the darkest dross depart - until the
Beauty deep within - once stained by every kind of sin - now cleansed -
Unfurls and stands upright - a
Glorious - wondrous - thing .


God bless you all
Stella

Truly Stella, only the Creator knows the full value of a person. With our little brains we may know a little part of it but never fully.

Dear Stella, Good writing here. Enjoyed reading. You are so right in the following: You wrote; " they barely gained a Pauper's share - from all their hard days toil."
Smiles, Bets

Profound Stella, pregnant with meaning and purpose of life. All that glitters is not gold! Many get lost and overdo those that bring only doom and gloom - siva

Yes that is the sad case , dear Siva . The hidden seams of any value lay forever dormant if we don't allow the Creator to reach them . The process may not be easy , but the end is worth it all.
God bless you and you loved ones today my friend .

Material possessions are without value in the absence true inner peace and spiritual fulfillment
