In need of open heart surgery! Psalm 147:3

Good morning everyone,
In the book Walking the Dead by John Eldredge, he talks about all of us having broken hearts!  It doesn't take a major assault like sexual abuse to create a broken heart.  Many good people assume they haven't any real brokenness because they haven't endured the horrors they read about in the paper or watch on TV.  If Jesus is not dwelling in your heart, then you are in need of heart surgery!  Matthew 13:15 says, "For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes.  Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them."  The Great Physician wants to hear you say that you need Him to dwell in your whole heart.  Psalm 147:3 says, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."  The heart is really the center piece where our physical and spiritual meet!  Over the course of the life of an individual who lives 75 years, an average heart will pump approximately 52,012,500 gallons of blood.  Without it pumping, you are done physically.  Over the course of the life of an individual who lives 75 years and refuses to have 'Spiritual' heart surgery, they are done forever!  Ask the Lord to perform open heart surgery on you today and let Him consume your whole heart!
Your brother in Christ,
