I Threw Away The Glass Globes

I threw away the glass globes.

They weren’t pretty anymore.

Clouded clots filled their home.

When swirled the water blurred.

 

I threw away the glass globes.

No more Valentine bears or hearts.

The icy home they lived in.

I’ll no longer gaze at.

 

I threw away the glass globes.

But at first, I didn’t want to.

I’ve had them since college.

If they were trash, what would I do?

 

I threw away the glass globes,

and, admittedly, my want.

Of items covering the mantle,

a desire my flesh will taunt.

 

I threw away the glass globes.

Items that rust and moths can eat.

Ones not nourishing to my soul.

Is trash truly my treat?

 

I threw away the glass globes.

Their time was done.

Why hold on any longer

when they don’t represent the Son?

 

I threw away the glass globes.

I hope to throw away more.

Get rid of things that tarnish

and grasp what can’t be wore.

 

I threw away the glass globes.

But this only the beginning.

My heart has many treasures…

and many of them sinning.

 

I had four little Valentine globes I got while in college. But as I decorated my apartment this year I realized it was time to throw them away. It made me think about scripture and what lies in our hearts. What kind of treasures are we truly storing? 

(NIV) Matthew 6:19, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.”

Is there anything in your heart you need to give up to Jesus?
