An upstate New York man was rich in almost every way. His estate was worth millions.
He owned houses, land, antiques, and cattle. But though on the outside he had it all,
he was very unhappy on the inside. His wife was growing old, and the couple was childless.
He had always wanted a little boy to carry on the family legacy.
Miraculously, his wife became pregnant in her latter years, and she gave birth to a little boy.
The boy was severely handicapped, but the man loved him with his whole heart.
When the boy was five, his mom died. The dad grew closer to his special son.
At age 13, the boy's birth defects cost him his life and the father died soon after from a broken heart.
The estate was auctioned before hundreds of bidders. The first item offered was a painting of the boy.
No one bid. They waited like vultures for the riches. Finally, the poor housemaid,
who helped raise the boy, offered $5 for the picture and easily took the bid.
To everyone's shock, the auctioneer ripped a hand written will from the back of the picture.
This is what it said: "To the person who thinks enough of my son to buy this painting,
to this person I give my entire estate."
The auction was over. The greedy crowd walked away in shock and dismay.
How many of us have sought after what we thought were true riches only to find out later that our Father was
prepared to give us his entire estate if we had only sought after His Son alone?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father aknoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 aBut bseek ye first the ckingdom of God, and his drighteousness; and all these ethings shall be fadded unto you.

What does my future hold?
What does Heavenly Father have in store for me?
Am I living the plan He intended for me?
Have I asked Him lately if I am on track?
Am I becoming who He knows I can be?
The person that I used to be,
That person no longer exists in me.
Wandering aimless, without direction,
Just hoping to find my way.
Back to the Bible I was led,
As I remembered what I had read.
Become as a child, come unto me.
Jesus my savior died for me.
Then I kneeled, and began to pray.
Father help me find my way.
Please forgive me of my sin.
Please dear Lord, let me in.
Please dear Lord, enter my heart.
Help me, give me a brand new start.
Father I beg you, won't you please,
Show me the way, I'm on my knees.
Then that still small voice within,
Whispered you're forgive all your sin.
They're forgiven, like they've never been.
My dear son where have you been?
I have watched you every day,
As you ran, and jumped, and played.
I smiled when your goodness shone.
When you sinned, my heart would groan.
In everything that you've been through,
I have never stopped loving you.
You are my child, can't you see.
You mean so very much to me.
That person no longer exists in me.
That day you got down on your knees,
You were reborn, a brand new being.
A being of love, of truth, of light.
A brand new being in my sight.
Be ever faithful strong and fervent.
Always be my faithful servant.
Pray to me, one to one,
Pour out you heart my loving son.
Pray to me, morning and night
And I will aide your earthly fight.
Father I will be your faithful son.
I'll keep the commandments, every one.
I'll crawl upon your lap, and pray,
For your guidance, every day.
I love you father, and your Son.
For everything that you have done.
Thank you for this life so dear,
Now that you're so very near.
I'll keep you in my heart each day.
Thank you Lord. On thy path I'll stay.
