“YOU’LL FIND JESUS THERE” the weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

YOU’LL FIND JESUS THERE:

“Tomorrow morning I’ll open up your heart” the surgeon said to the 8 year-old-boy.

“You’ll find Jesus there,” the boy said.

The surgeon continued, “I’ll open your heart and check the damage.”

“You’ll find Jesus there,” the boy said.

“When I see the damage, I will suture you back up and then think about the next step,” said the surgeon.

“You will find Jesus in my heart because my Sunday school teacher told me so. She said it says so in the Bible. Besides that, our Sunday school songs say He lives there,” said the boy.

The surgery took place the next day. After the surgery the surgeon began to make notes of what he found. In his mind there was no hope and no cure. The little boy would die within a matter of months.

The thought began to get to the doctor and all of a sudden the doctor shouted to God, “Why did you do this to the boy? Why can’t he live a normal life?”

God spoke to the surgeon’s heart and said, “The boy is a part of my flock and will always be a part of my flock. When he is with me there will be no more suffering and pain. He will have comfort and peace. One day his parents as well as you will join him and my flock will continue to grow.”

The next day the surgeon went to the boy’s room and sat down with the parents beside the bed.

In a moment or two, the boy opened his eyes and asked very quietly, “What did you find in my heart?”

With tears flowing down his cheeks, the surgeon said, “I found Jesus there.”

My Heart Gets There First: The weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

My Heart Gets There First:

An elderly Christian lady, who was crippled with arthritis, used to
hobble to the services of the church on crutches. It was a great ordeal and required of her a considerable amount of toil and pain. A friend of hers observed her regular and faithful attendance and asked, “How do you manage to be at every service?” Her answer was, “My heart gets there first, and my old legs just follow after.”

Where will your heart be this coming weekend?

Go to church and be blessed!!

Soon and Very Soon! The weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

Soon and Very Soon:

A lady was cleaning her house and singing Gospel songs as she worked. She began singing, “Soon and very soon, we are going to see the king…”

Her little son was in the next room and began singing along with Mom. Something was a little off, however, so Mom stopped to listen. The preschooler’s version: “Soon, and very soon, we are going to Burger King…”

Haha! Be Blessed

The Race! The weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

Runner

The Race:

I Refuse to be Discouraged.
I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted,
and here’s the reason why . . .

I have a God who’s mighty,
Who’s sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me,
and I am on His team.

He is all wise and powerful,
Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.

My God knows all that’s happening;
Beginning to the end,
His presence is my comfort,
He is my dearest friend.

When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God;
Into His arms I go.

When circumstances threaten
to rob me from my peace;
He draws me close unto His breast,
Where all my strivings cease.

And when my heart melts within me,
and weakness takes control;
He gathers me into His arms,
He soothes my heart and soul.

The great “I AM” is with me,
My life is in His hand,
The “Son of the Lord” is my hope,
It’s in His strength I stand.

I refuse to be defeated,
My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me,
as through this life I trod.

I’m looking past all my circumstances,
To Heaven’s throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God,
I’m resting in His love.

I give God thanks in everything,
My eyes are on His face;
The battle’s His, the victory’s mine;
He’ll help me win the race.
