Introduction to Devotional Treasures.

First of all let me welcome you to Devotional Treasures; the blog where I have been sharing the treasures that I have found each day in my Bible in my own words. Let me tell you how it all began.

 I had always been a writer in my heart since my school days; dabbling in poetry and eventually moving onto short stories. After school there was a lengthy gap in my writing due to work, university and family. I returned to writing short stories again in 2000, and was the winner of The Emily Fleming Award for one of my stories in 2004. But yet again I found myself drifiting away from writing as i felt it conflicted with my Christian faith. I had not discovered any Christian writers yet. It was in April 2020, at the beginning of the Corona Virus, that I felt a need to write again. This time it wasn’t just my yearning, friends who had known me for many years kept asking me about my writing. it was during surfing chess blogs and vlogs on YouTube that God prompted me to write for Him; with a little research I found some examples of Christian blogs and how easily one could be set up. Thus Devotional Treasures was born.

I am not a Pastor or a Theologian, I am only a middle-aged family man who has been a Christian since 1984. I am a husband, father and grandfather to my beloved family. My beliefs are simple but steadfast; Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour, and I depend on Him. The Word of God, the Bible, is my Manual of Life guiding me closer to God each day. 

I have focussed my writing on sharing from my own private reading and study of the Bible, sharing what I find with my readers. My main hope is that I would encourage other Christians in their day to day life, but also be a source of help to chose who are seeking to know more about God. My devotionals and studies cover many subjects, and occasionally have series on a particular subject or portion of the Bible. I hope you will join the Devotional Treasures family, and be blessed in what you read. 

Finally, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this short introduction. I would be glad to hear from you if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me anytime. 

May God Guide & Bless You
