The Trinkets of The Heart (10.7.09)

“The trinkets of the heart are gathered one by one.

The trinkets of the heart are not gender sensitive.

The trinkets of the heart testify of the gods of each heart.

The trinkets of the heart are obtained without approval,

                                        have not had a blessing sought,

                                        will not bestow good health upon a body.

The trinkets of the heart are not known as the desires of the heart.

The trinkets of the heart are the wants of the soul.

The trinkets of the heart are seized upon a moment,

                                        are acquired to satisfy the eye,

                                        are sought to deafen the ear of the spirit,

                                        are designed to appeal to the body as the armour of that soul.

The trinkets of the heart invade the homes of man,

                                        make statements of idolatrous belief,

                                        speak volumes to a guest,

                                        deny the spoken words in opposition.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that are garish,

                                                                   that distract the ear,

                                                                   that desecrate the body,

                                                                   that invade the presence of the nose.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that speak of other gods,

                                                                  that pervert the soul,

                                                                  that dampen down the spirit,

                                                                  that squander the time of man.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that will bring curses from their origins,

                                                                         will barter with the soul for right of occupation,

                                                                         will bring blasphemy to the lips,

                                                                         will stem the seeking of the spirit after truth.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that capture the neck of man,

                                                                                       the wrist of man,

                                                                                       the flesh of man,

                                                                                       the extremities of man.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that capture the wealth of man in collections without merit.

           Beware of the trinkets of the heart that will not festoon a gown of great importance.

The trinkets of the heart confess no shame upon an injury,

                                        use vanity to clothe the proud,

                                        declare self-righteousness to the uninhibited.

The trinkets of the heart tear at the heart of God,

                                        decompose the bearings of the Cross,

                                        lead the wayward along paths they should not choose.

The trinkets of the heart cannot bind the saints of God,

                                        cannot establish dominion within the guidance of My Spirit,

                                        will not tempt the righteous who know fellowship with God.

The trinkets of the heart will become as ashes at the grave.”
