Feeling My Heart Beat

My good blogging buddy Butch Dean posted this Tuesday on his blog site Wordsmith’s Desk.

Find a time when your movements and thoughts can cease; “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1)

…when your heart and soul can rest; “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;… (Psalm 23:2)

…when everything is as it should be; “…He leadeth me beside the still waters.” (Psalm 23:2)

…when you can hear the beating of your heart. “He restoreth my soul…”(Psalm 23:3)

It reminded me of my open heart surgery in 2011. Lying awake on those early post opheartbeat nights I could hear and feel my heart beating. Strong and steady. The beating kept me awake, but I marveled at what God had done in my chest.

The Great Physician had replaced my worn out human valve with a pig valve. He also replaced part of a deteriorating aorta. As I listened to my heart beat I marveled at the skill of the surgeons who performed the delicate surgery. And I marveled at my God who created such a complex miracle of life in my mother’s womb.

Our God is an awesome God.

  1. Thanks for the e mail, I had a heart procedure myself a few years ago and your post makes it all come together in my thoughts.


    1. I m so grateful. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. It’s kind of difficult to understand someone else’s testimony until you’ve been there yourself. I hope you’re doing better now. God bless.


  2. The old deejay in me really enjoyed seeing & hearing Rich Mullins sing “My God Is an Awesome God.” Thanks, Steve. You have a good heart!
