Sunday Stillness – Treasure

2 Corinthians 4;7 POTS
Watercolour painted by Janis Cox 2013.

I really felt this Scripture this week as I am extremely tired but God kept giving me strength to push through. I know the power comes from Him.

The rest of the verse reads as follows:

 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.  We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.  For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you (2 Corinthians 4:8-12, NIV).

So let’s live on in Him who gives us the strength, the patience, the kindness and the love.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness.

  2. “So let’s live on in Him who gives us the strength, the patience, the kindness and the love.” Thank you for this reminder today…to live on in Him. This was what I needed to begin my morning.

I love to connect with you.
