CHAPTER 1

MY TREASURE

His Love


My Beloved Daughter,

My love for you cannot be taken away. What you are searching for is found in My heavenly arms. I can promise you this: if you will seek Me first above all others, you will find that I am all you need to feel safe and secure. My love for you is everlasting and effortless because you are My daughter. My deepest desire is to be close to you, but I will not force My way into your heart. I will wait patiently for you to invite Me in, and when you're ready, we will walk together as Father and daughter every day for the rest of your life—until the day I see your face in heaven. For now, breathe in My never-ending love for you and smile, knowing you are My treasure.

Love, Your loving Father


MY TREASURE

His Encouragement


My Beloved Daughter,

I know you wonder where I am in the middle of your pain. Although you can't see Me, My eyes are always on you, and I see every tear that has ever rolled off your precious face. My Father's heart breaks as I look for ways to remind you that My comfort is only a whisper away. Your feelings will always deceive you, which is why I gave you My Holy Spirit. The next time your heart doubts Me, pray and reflect on the last time you were sure I had forsaken you. Remember that I was there all along, working out what you could not see in your moment of mourning. I have always been with you; I was there when you cried your first tear, and I will be there to catch your last tear on earth. This weeping will not last, My love, but it will lead you back to Me, where your joy, hope, and love will once again be restored as you soak in My presence.


Love, Your tender, loving God

TREASURE OF TRUTH

Our God does not waste pain ... but He does wipe away every tear.


MY TREASURE

His Plan


My Child,

I know you have a passion inside of you to do something bigger than yourself. My plan for your life has already been put into motion; however, you will remain in a holding pattern until I alone am enough for you. Because I love you, My ultimate plan for you will begin to unfold only when I have your full adoration and attention. Wherever your treasure is and whatever you value most will direct your heart and ultimately your destiny.

If your desire is to see what your faith and My power can conquer through your life, you must give up anything that feeds your flesh more than your spirit. I am a holy God, and I can give you only as much as you are willing to lay down. If you will lose your life, you will find it. It is impossible for you to outgive Me because I am a generous God who can and will reward you with far greater life than you could ever give yourself.

Love, Your King of wonders


MY TREASURE

His Fight


My Beloved Child,

The battle is never easy; however, the victory is everlasting if it is fought for My glory in My strength. Don't give up your faith when you're worn out from the struggles of life. I have an endless supply of grace to get you through the pain, persecution, and problems this life brings. You will lose only if you forget what you're fighting for. Yes, you will have many days when the blows of the enemy will leave you feeling as if you have been knocked out. However, victory is not measured by how you feel or what you win or lose; it is measured by your witness in the midst of warfare that wins souls for My Kingdom. Your strength will be renewed when you focus on fighting for what is right in My sight. Now is not the time to give in or give up; rather, it is time to get on your knees and let Me reveal to you what is worth fighting for!

Love, Your faithful Father who fights for you


For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and he will give you victory!

DEUTERONOMY 20:4


MY TREASURE

His Request


My Beautiful Daughter,

I am the King of kings and the lover of your soul, and there is no one who can give you what I can. I have just one request: take time to connect your heart to Mine in song, in Scripture, in prayer, in praise, and in deed. You will find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. You will experience Me in a whole new way when you choose to love Me with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. I will no longer seem invisible to you when you seek to make Me visible. When you live fully to gain My attention, you will find My adoration is enough for you, and no one will be able to come between us again. Now, My love, ask Me and I will show you that I truly am all you'll ever need!

Love, The King who satisfies


MY TREASURE

His Strength


My Precious Child,

I want you to experience the benefits and blessings of being Mine. I want you to know the power of grace that only I can give you. You won't discover who I really am in your own strength. You can conquer and accomplish much on your own, but you will never know the joy of work that makes an everlasting difference until you come to the end of yourself. It is in your weakest moments that My strength will become your strength. Only then will My Holy Spirit, who lives inside of you, rise up. Then you will know that I am with you always. If you will embrace your weaknesses and grab hold of all I am, you will become all you desire to be. Now is the time to let Me do great things in you and through you!

Love, Your strong and mighty God


TREASURE OF TRUTH

In your weakest moment, you'll experience the benefits of being a child of the King.


MY TREASURE

His Sight


My Beloved,

Your faith will soar when you look up to Me and let go of what you see in the natural world. Don't you know by now that I will do the supernatural for you if you will allow Me to? You no longer have to be controlled by your circumstances; you can choose to live fueled by faith in Me, starting today. What you see on this earth may cause you to lose hope, but your trust in Me will free you from fear and doubt. Faith in Me will give you the power to persevere with passion and purpose. I want you to learn that what I say and do can never be shaken or taken without your permission. Now breathe in My presence, My child, and choose to never again doubt in the darkness what you know to be true in the light of My truth.

Love, Your faithful Father


Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

HEBREWS 11:1


MY TREASURE

His Path


My Beloved Daughter,

When you feel desperate, you will be tempted to walk off the narrow path I designed for you. From your human perspective, this path often appears to limit your choices. However, if you choose to remain completely committed to Me, you will discover that My way leads to limitless blessings and a beautiful life. If you wander off to the wide way of desperation, you will feel lost and alone. I am always here, but I will not walk My beloved daughter down the road that leads to destruction. When you call, I will come pick you up and direct you back to My perfect will for your life. Your determination and dedication to Me will set you apart and satisfy your deepest desire to live for something beyond yourself. You are Mine; therefore, you have no need to allow disappointments or despair to direct your path any longer.

Love, Your Father who walks with you


MY TREASURE

His Identity


My Chosen Daughter,

No one can define you without your permission. I want you to be so secure in who you are in Me that nothing or no one can steal your true identity. Seek Me to find your true worth. Ask Me to guard your heart and mind from the lies of the enemy, and I will. I won't force you to call on Me, but I will never stop finding ways to display My love for you. If you could see yourself the way I do, even for a moment, no one would have the power to define who you are. Take a moment right now and think about who I am—the God who created the heavens and the earth, and the heavenly Father who calls you by name. You are My chosen one; you are set apart; you are My beloved; you are precious to Me. If there is anything other than this truth inside of you, it is not from Me. Now is the time to let go of the lie and to walk in your true identity!

Love, Your heavenly Father forever


TREASURE OF TRUTH

How you see yourself will never change who you are in Christ.


MY TREASURE

His Salvation


My Child,

I have so much I want to share with you, but you will have a heart to hear Me only when you've committed to follow My Son, Jesus, as your Savior. Your eyes can read My Word and your mind can meditate on what it means, but until your spirit is alive in Christ, you will not be transformed into the woman I created you to be. I am not asking you to surrender to My Son for My benefit but for your blessing. The life you crave is found in Christ alone. Open your heart to My one and only Son, asking Him to forgive your sins and become the Lord of your life. The moment you pray, you will be forever connected to Me and secure for now and all eternity. Just think ... you're only one prayer away from everlasting life!

Love, Your heavenly Father

His Treasure: Gems of Love from Your King 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.
Savurbks More than 1 year ago
Written from God’s point-of-view as our Heavenly Father to His earthly daughters, this devotional speaks to the heart of all women. Each devotional contains a love-letter straight from God to inspire, encourage and uplift His precious daughters. Along with the each letter, a “treasure of truth” thought and a Scripture verse are included. The devotionals address subjects all women experience (roadblocks, perspectives, solace, salvation, direction, faithfulness) from a loving Father’s perspective. A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS: This absolutely charming little devotional is truly a gem. From the size of the smaller-shaped book to the exquisite pictures that accompany each devotion, I enjoyed the entire package. The letters spoke to me full of hope, commitment, rest and unconditional love. Very, very well done, I would be proud to share this book or give as a gift…positively delightful! RATING: 5 (out of 5) pennies *I received a complimentary copy of His Treasure from Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review*

A beautiful gift-sized book with almost 90 devotionals, "His Treasure" is designed for women who are wanting/needing/longing to feel close to God and truly know the identity we have in Christ. Every day is "His something" - including "His Story," "His Leading," "His Promise," - and much more. Written letter style from God to you, each one includes a supporting verse and a "Treasure of Truth" - a statement about that particular topic. This book is focused on helping us understand that we are a treasure to God and He wants us to know it! It would be a wonderful and thoughtful gift to yourself and someone else!

There is a letter in the pages of this book for almost any situation or emotion that a woman might experience. It is filled with encouragement and reassurance that wherever we may find ourselves, God is there with us. Not only can we read the letters, but Shepherd included pertinent Bible verses to reassure us that we are not alone in any circumstance. My favorite part about this book is that it could be read straight through over a series of days and used as a devotional book, or readers can easily skip around to find a relevant letter to address their need or match their emotion. This is only the second book I have read by Shepherd, but I have to say that I am a big fan. Her writing style is personable and engaging. As I read this book, I almost had the feeling that I was sitting with a dear friend. It was easy to read, encouraging, uplifting, and refreshing. If you are looking for a great book to reassure you of God's love for you, this is a great choice. It would also make an excellent gift for someone who is going through a difficult time in their lives. I can't wait to read another book by Shepherd!

First of all, this book is GORGEOUS! The layout, the cover, the overall design...perfect. Ideal for a gift, but make sure you get a copy for yourself! Second, the daily readings are personal...from Jesus to YOU. The way Sheri writes leaves you feeling as if you've truly received a personal message from the Lord, and that makes them impossible to ignore or take lightly. The book is all about Him, but it's all written to you. Readings include His love, strength, salvation, mercy and so many other attributes that will encourage and comfort you. "His Treasure" truly leaves you feeling like His treasure...which you are, of course! My thanks to my friends at Tyndale House Publishers for my sneak peek in exchange for an honest review. "His Treasure" is highly recommended.
Nicnac63 More than 1 year ago
I love almost any sound, Biblical, women’s devotionals. Applying Biblical passages, messages, and instructions is a good thing. It keeps our minds on godly thoughts and our hands busy working for the Lord.  This devotional book is unique, in that it is written as if God Himself is speaking to the reader, letters from our Heavenly Father. While the ‘letters’ state true sentiments from the Bible, it still feels a little sticky. Sticky, in the sense that words are being put into God’s mouth (so to speak.) God has already spoken to us through his Word, and his messages to us are clear. If the devotions were in letter form in response to the Bible passage, (letters from the reader to God) I would’ve liked it much better. Each devotion consists of a succinct ‘letter’ from God, a Bible verse, and a one-sentence ‘Treasure of Truth”, or message summary.  The devotional messages are simple, true, and sweet, but, as I stated previously, I’m not crazy about the ‘letters from God’ design.

Great encouraging read!  I love getting a dose of encouragement on a regular basis.  The latest book I'm reading, "His Treasure - Gems of Love from Your King", by Sheri Rose Shepherd, does just that. In this small, gift book, I have have found wonderful little bite size chucks of inspiration.  The book and it's artwork are beautiful.  Coffee table worthy. Basically, the author has written about how through God, you can see yourself better because of the way He sees you, and to always remember that we are His treasure. Each devotion is written like a letter to you from God.  At the end, you'll find a prayer and a scripture reference to further meditate on.  There are about 180 "treasures" to read.

I love this book so much! My ideal time with God is to read a bit of His word, along with a letter from this book, and then go outside and talk to Him either with the sunrise or under the stars at night. When other people fall short, which they always will because no one is perfect but God--no friend, no man, no one--He reminds me that my worth is in Him and, no matter what, He treasures me and loves me. He's been using this book to show me that again and again. I've tried quite a few devotionals but this one is my favorite. Besides that it's written in such a way that God will touch your heart, it's an absolutely beautiful book, both inside and out. It would also make a wonderful gift. I've already got a few people in mind I want to give a copy to.
oliviabellemary More than 1 year ago
His Treasure by Sheri Rose Shepherd I love this sweet little devotional. I love that Sheri writes as if God is speaking directly to me, from His point of view. The book is small, but very well put together. You can carry it in your purse or it would make the perfect gift for a friend, sister or mother. I love when authors write from God's point of view. It helps me connect even more with my Lord. When I am going through a tough time, I love to pick up this little devotional and listen to God speak to me--addressing me as His precious daughter whom He is crazy in love with. Each reading comes with a scripture that applies to that reading. I find myself relating to what I am reading so much that I want more and Sheri provides that with providing a verse, so that I am able to go to my bible and read more about what God is speaking to me. Beautiful devotional, inside and out! Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you have ever struggled to find a way to connect your heart to your heavenly Father, His Treasure is the book for you. This book of beautiful “love letters” from God, to you, will discover treasures of truth, real love, and wisdom from God’s Word. This book has gems of love with a note from: Your Loving Father, a scripture to go along with the letter, and a “treasure of truth” section. I love the letters from God and the scripture to go along with it. The book was filled with beautiful pictures and wonderful treasures of truth throughout. Written from the prospective of God speaking to His beloved daughter and accompanied with appropriate bible verses. If you'd like to get a better sense of the Father God who loves you, this book is for you. I highly recommend this delightful book for daily reading. Every page is filled with biblical truths and love notes from the King. Every note is personal and addresses a different area of struggle. His Treasure can be used as a bible study. Also the book is small enough to carry around and beautiful enough to give as gifts. I look forward to being able to pass the encouragement along to others. Thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
PJtheEMT4 More than 1 year ago
His Treasure- Gems of Love from Your King From by Sheri Rose Shepherd, is a beautiful pocket sized devotional book for women. This full color devotional features beautiful, vintage themed graphics on each page. This small book contains short daily readings, written as letters from God, to the reader. Each entry is addressed as a personal love letter with an endearing salutation, "My Beloved Daughter, My Precious Girl, My Daughter, My Child, My beloved", etc. Written in a similar style to Sarah Young's best selling Jesus Calling, devotional, each entry is written from the first person point of view from the Lord himself, to the reader. Any reader who enjoyed the devotional genre started by Young's book, will enjoy Shepherd's new devotional which is specifically aimed at women. This inviting little book features a quick "letter' based on a theme with a supporting scriptural passage and "Treasure of Truth". Quaint antique styled graphics highlight a memory verse or Treasure of Truth tid bit. The beauty of this devotional will make any reader want to read this devotional. In fact, I can imagine this book earning a treasured place on a bed side or vanity table or even a desk or purse. The quick passages will make this book easy to fit in any fast paced lifestyle. This book is the perfect way to start a morning prayer time with God. This book is a wonderful way to ease the reader into spiritual truths of the bible in a personal, relevant way. This book teaches about faith, hope, time for God, prayer. This book aims at boosting the self esteem and value of its reader with building up the reader and empowering her with vivid, positive affirmations throughout. Not only is this book a perfect fashion accessory as well as a spiritual tool. And for those who want to really dig deep into the spiritual message, they will find this book scripturally correct as well. For example, one entry for the day states that God's love is unconditional, but God's promises are not. This bit of truth may take a few minutes to digest as it is unexpected, yet true to the word of God. This author is uncompromising in sharing truth which is rare in this day of watered down Christianity. This book makes a perfect gift for a friend, sister, daughter or any special person. As a blogger I received this book published by Tyndale Momentum- an imprint of Tyndale publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
