Pacing From the Top!

“He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.”  Psalm 91:15 KJV

Today, I went to see my mother in the hospital.  She is so much better and I want to thank you all for your prayers!!  I KNOW they are making a difference in my mother’s prognosis and they are KEEPING her!  Glory to God!

Tonight, when her cardiologist walked in, he began to explain to her the heart beats from the top down and her heart had only been beating on the bottom.  The top had been in a “flutter”, so to speak.  I had told a friend about this earlier and she said, “What did you say? The heart beats from the top??  I hear a blog in that!”  Was she ever right!  I began to think about this.   We get our life from our hearts beating and beating in sync as it should.  If our hearts don’t beat from the top and then downward, it throws the electrical impulse of our hearts off.   The heart begins to have to compensate and eventually it wears out.  When the heart wears out, as we all know, the rest of the body cannot live.   The doctor literally said, “The heart paces from the top.”  I told him I was going to write on this and as I asked my question he said, “I see where this is going.”  I had to laugh!  I don’t know if he is a Christian or not but I was excited that he “got it”!

This is how we “pace” ourselves.  We pace from the top.  We get our impulses from God and we follow the path where those “impulses” take us.  If we get out of sync and try to “beat” from the bottom, or with our own strength and ideas,  it is strenuous work and we wear out, just like the heart does!

This is why prayer is so important.  Our verse says when we call to Him, He definitely answers us!  It is so necessary to stay on the right path.  We can’t get our “impulses” from God if we aren’t creating a communication path.  We talk to Him and listen and as we do, He answers and guides our paths!  The human body is amazing.  It is amazing the physical reflects the things of the spirit.  No wonder He tells us to pray without ceasing.  How much could we avoid and how much could we walk in the fulness of the blessing if we would just pray, get our impulses from God and follow them?  No wonder He says Jesus is the head of the church!  Jesus is our head and we are the body that thrives from a personal relationship with Him.  Again, science proves God is real and He knows exactly what He is doing before we even have a clue it exist!  Isn’t it wonderful that God is truly and ultimately in control?  Remember, we are “pacing from the top”!

Thank you for stopping by, my precious reader!  I appreciate you!   See you soon!

    Praising the Lord with you. And yes, it is so awesome to see God in what others simply take for granted. The physical definitely reflects the Spirit all around us. We just have to slow down enough to see God in everything, because He IS! Love you and so glad to hear this wonderful report on your sweet Moma.
