The Beating Heart

This machine that the Creator placed in my body, and nearly all living beings, including those who have often been referred to as “Having no heart” do have them too.

It is a marvelous machine; regulated by the brain, electrical activity, and most importantly by its Creator.  I do not know all the things involved; not nearly; but I do know one thing and that is that it is a marvelous invention.  We men and women of earth think we are makers of intricate, detailed, and beautiful, magnificent machines.  When you stop and think about it though; what is there that compares with the human body?  You could say, “Maybe the universe”, but we did not make that.  The Creator did.

We have our computers, our V-8, V-10, V-12, V-6, four cylinder gasoline combustion engines; and they are quite remarkable.  There is also the diesel, and jet engines too.  Still cannot match up to what GOD has made.

I guess I have needed to stop and take a look at things a bit differently lately.  You see, I just returned home from having stentz placed in my heart arteries.  About 2.5 years ago I had five put in my heart, and it really gave me a boost, a pickup, I did not know I had even been missing.  Then, as I wrote a week or so ago — I had a heart attack, and it was due to one of those stentz becoming 100 percent blocked.  While the surgeon was examining that situation, he found another blockage in another arterie.

Yesterday I went in and had that one taken care of.  I just returned home, and feel like I am doing quite well.  I did just receive a call from the Cardiologists office that I could not return to work until November 25 though.  I was a bit disappointed, but realized that it is probably necessary.

The Beating Heart.  That is something you cannot live without.  Something else  you cannot live without and for all eternity is to know the One who gives you a beating heart.  That is possible through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ; God’s holy Son.
