A Work of Heart...

While waiting with my mom in her heart doctor's office, I noticed a poster on the wall that had a detailed diagram of the human heart with the title above it, "A Work of Heart." I thought it was pretty funny, since we often tell her that she is a "piece of work." No disrespect intended. My mom is 88 years old and recently had a pacemaker put in. Our visit to the doctor was just a follow-up and things seem to be going well in that area. She has many other health-related issues, most of which are being managed as best as possible, all things including her age taken into consideration.

Spiritually, our hearts are heavy in that she does not know the Lord. We pray He will do "a work of heart" in her before it is too late. She has heard the Good News many times, including the personal testimonies of both my sister and I. We pray, talk with her about the Lord at every opportunity He gives to us, and cast our care for her on Him.

I was reminded recently as I sat through a memorial service for a 31-year-young man, that life is precious and our times and the number of our days are ordained by the Lord. He knows them all before yet there is even one of them. Since we do not, we'd be wise to make them count for His purposes.

Maybe there's something you've been putting off until tomorrow that you know you should have already attended to? Or someone you meant to call, hug or write a note to but just haven't gotten around to it. So what are you waiting for? We're mid-way thorough this year already, it's wise from time to time to check our priorities? Time...the clock marks time for a reason.

So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12 (AMP)
