Check your pulse.
Yep, it's there. Unless you are dead, but I highly doubt that.
If you have a healthy heart, then your heart is a constant part of your life. It is always there. Letting, well more like, making you live. Without it, you'd die.
I wonder what life would be like if friendship was like a heart. What would it be like if your friends were always there. Helping, protecting, and providing you with life. How would your life change? What if you were like that to them?
I have several AMAZING friends. They are downright awesome. They are like my heart. They are always "beating" inside me, giving me life, providing me with constant love. refreshing me, making me new.
What if we were always like that? What if we "beat" for everyone? How would the world change?
What if marriage was like a heart? Without a heart, a person dies. Just like a heart, without constant "beating", a marriage dies. What if a spouse was always "beating" for his/her spouse? Always refreshing them with new life? Constant? Reliable? Clean? Good?
Do you think if we modeled our marriages after the heart, that more marriages might last? A perfect heart always beats. It also pumps clean, fresh, full of nutrients, vibrant blood into the body. It takes in the old "dead" blood and turns it into good, fresh, clean, "living" blood.
What if our friendships and marriages were like that?
What if we were always "beating" for our friends and spouses. What if we were clean, fresh, and full of good things? Vibrant? Full of love? What if we took our friends' or spouse's old "blood" and made it fresh?
Like the blood of the Lamb.
Pored out to save us.
A group of sinners.
A heart stopped to save countless sin-darkened hearts.
A heart resurrected.
A heart beating for the world.
A heart that cries out to all other hearts.
A heart asking to make clean all other hearts.
A heart that beats just for you.
A heart that is bursting with love for you.
A heart that breaks, leaps, does a double takes, slows down, beats with yours.
A heart that is always with yours.
A perfect heart.
Let's change our hearts.
And our life hearts.
P.S. If you were wondering, when ever I used the word "beating" and it didn't apply to a heart. Then I was using the word to mean "always there", "constant", "supporting", etc... :)
