Seashells for your soul...

seashells are my new treasure.
I have a lot of creative ideas that I'm going to use shells for and I can't wait. I go to the beach and go to get into the water and get distracted by all the shells. It's cool how all of them are different in some way, be it shape or color. Some are whole and some are broken. Some are big and some are itty bitty. It makes me think of people. We're all humans but we go through different struggles or triumphs. We're broken or made whole with Jesus. We're all different in some way but all have a "God-shaped" hole in our heart.
I've been thinking a lot about how much the world runs away from the Truth and in the end that is what they really need. Dean spoke about Hell at a Christian Surfer's meeting the other day and it really convicted me. I know the Truth. I have the cure and I'm not sharing it with the people around me. I work at Gap and seem to work with at least one new person each shift (which is pretty crazy in my opinion). Some people who know the Lord and some people who are totally turned off by Him. At Gap, they "force" us to talk about the GapCard with each customer. Some customers get asked multiple times by different people in key locations (fitting rooms, salesfloor, and the registers). The point is that I talk about that stupid card every shift, to every customer, trying to convince just one person that this is what they really need to change their shopping experience. Why am I not talking to at least one person a shift about Jesus and explaining what a difference he can make in your life?

Matthew 6:21

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
