“Tomorrow morning,” the surgeon began, “I’ll open up
“You’ll find Jesus there,” the boy interrupted.
The surgeon looked up, annoyed “I’ll cut your heart
open, he continued, “to see how much damage has been
“But when you open up my heart, you’ll find Jesus in
there,” said the boy.
The surgeon looked to the parents, who sat quietly.
“When I see how much damage has been done, I’ll sew
your heart and chest back up, and I’ll plan what to do
“But you’ll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He
lives there. The hymns all say He lives there. You’ll
find Him in my heart.”
The surgeon had had enough. “I’ll tell you what I’ll
find in your heart.
I’ll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and
And I’ll find out if I can make you well.”
“You’ll find Jesus there too! He lives there.”
The surgeon left.
The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes
from the surgery, “…damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary
vein, widespread muscle degeneration.
No hope for transplant, no hope for cure. Therapy:
painkillers and bed rest Prognosis:, “
here he paused, “death within one year.”
He stopped the recorder, but there was more to be
said. “Why?” he asked aloud.
“Why did You do this? You’ve put him here; You’ve put
him in this pain; and You’ve cursed him to an early
The Lord answered and said, “The boy, My lamb, was not
meant for your flock for long, for he is a part of My
flock, and will forever be.
Here, in My flock, he will feel no pain, and will be
comforted as you cannot imagine.
His parents will one day join him here, and they will
know peace, and My flock will continue to grow.”
The surgeon’s tears were hot, but his anger was
hotter. “You created that boy, and You created that
heart! He’ll be dead in months. Why?”
The Lord answered, “The boy, My lamb, shall return to
My flock, for He has done his duty: I did not put My
lamb with your flock to lose him, but to retrieve
another lost lamb.”
The surgeon wept. The surgeon sat beside the boy’s
bed; the boy’s parents sat across from him. The boy
awoke and whispered, “Did you cut open my heart?”
“Yes,” said the surgeon.
“What did you find?” asked the boy.
“I found Jesus there,” said the surgeon.

morndai hi..dot…a new day in the lord praise him………………The Lord’s wounded hands, feet, and side reveal God’s desire to change our hearts by the power of His love.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:17, Ezekiel 36:26, Ephesians 3:17-19
This is beautiful. I posted my testimonial today, inspired by you. 🙂
That’s so sweet..thank you! I’ll have to come look at it. I subscribe to you, but haven’t gotten anything in a while. When was the last time you put something out? God bless you and I hope you and your family had a great weekend! It’s been cold where I’m at, but it’s supposed to be warm this upcoming week. I wish it were Spring/Summer all year around, minus the 100+ temps! I can live without that.
I clicked on your name here above and it went straight to the post! What a beautiful, wonderful post! I really enjoyed it and am so happy you decided to make it public. I’ve been curious to hear your story. Very special and dear indeed! See, God’s known about you all along and your family, and He’s been speaking to you in ways you probably don’t even know all of your life..that’s how He does it. And for whatever reason, something happens, and it’s that time when we finally give ear to Him..and it’s the most special time. Thank you for blessing me today by sharing your story, and for your sweet, kind words you give to me. God bless you each and every day..and know that you have a sister ‘not too far’ from you who prays diligently for you, your husband, and now your father and mother.
Thank you so much for your sweet words. I have posted a lot lately and I’m not sure why you aren’t be notified. 😦 It was really great sharing my story with everyone. I was definitely shy to do so but I felt it needed to be shared. I hope David will share his with the world one day as well. Hopefully on a much larger scale. 🙂 God bless!
I know I have subscribed to your blog because I remember doing so, and I was getting your posts. Since I changed my theme, I always get the two notifications below comments…as if I’m not subscribed..everywhere I go. So I will come back to your blog and subscribe to it again just in case.
You’re welcome, by the way, and thank you for your kindness as well. I think it takes even more bravery than the average person when you or a family member are in the public eye because the world is always ready to judge us. These are truly the days when this will happen, and I guess we just have to swallow hard, take a breath, and focus on what Jesus did for us…it helps break those barriers of fear.
I had a hard time at first when I was expressing myself so ‘zealously’ on this blog because I was worried with my books coming out, it might be used against me at some point, or I might be publicly persecuted..but I just had to let it go and not think about it. I said to myself, “The only reason I’m here in this life is to serve God. So, if I’m pleasing Him, that’s all that matters.” I’ve lived my whole life outside of His will, and in these last few years, I want to make up for all of that time that i have failed Him. What will I say when the time comes for me to kneel in front of Him in judgment? I know there will definitely be some things I’m not proud of, but at least I can make the list much shorter and give God things to be happy with me about. That’s where I’m at right now.
I know time is short as I read the news headlines every day. I just want to be ready, and i want my loved ones to be ready. I have failed God much in times past, and I still do in some areas of my life..we live in a corrupt body of flesh..we will until we are made perfect. Like I said, I just want to do better than what I did in the past when I was focused on my body, men, how perfect I did or did not look, and worldly things that god me nowhere. I just thank God that He is as merciful as He is, or else I would not be here now. I would have died a long time ago during my teenage years from anorexia/bulimia.
I was so bad with the disease that I have come across people I haven’t seen since school, and they thought I was probably dead. I got down to 64 lbs (approximately) at 5/7. Not a pretty sight. God bless you. We’ll just keep lifting each other up in prayer each and every day. In all you do, be blessed!
Oh, I did forget to comment about what you had said regarding your husband…sorry. I believe wholeheartedly David will share his testimony. God has the perfect time and the perfect place. When it happens, I am certain many people will be saved by hearing it. I will pray that the Lord will strengthen him in that manner and build him up, and that when it is time, God will allow nothing to hold him back from doing so.
Also, did you get a chance to read the one post I had made about ‘heavenly baseball’? It was an excerpt from book 3, Soul Savior…the angel being selected because he was the best in heaven at “blazeball’…like baseball is on earth, but with balls of fire instead… As busy as you’ve been lately, you probably have not had the time, but when you do, you might really like it…and besides, if I said something wrong (re: baseball) you would know and be able to tell me! 😉 All three books were written when I had nothing but an ancient computer and no internet to look things up..I just had to trust God and use the Encyclopedia on the computer. I just got this Dell laptop this year in May, as well as the internet (did not have internet for over two years..which everyone acted utterly stunned when I would tell them I had no internet! You would think I came from a different planet or something! LOL!)
