That Sinking Feeling

Have you ever had that sinking feeling that your best efforts, expenditures of time, hopes, or investments have amounted to nothing? Have you ever watched your dreams go down like a big ship that has just struck an iceberg?
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth." - Matthew 6:19-24
When the Titanic sank, the band played, "Nearer, My God to Thee."
Vast wealth went down to the bottom of the sea.
That was the original sinking feeling. Have you ever had it?
Some things stayed afloat - mostly life rafts and people.
All that was of God and at the end of life, ascended to God.
When the choice to sink with your wealth or move toward God is offered, what do you choose?
