The Heart  




Please send this on, but only if you mean it...

"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began, "I'll open up your heart..."

"You'll find Jesus there," the girl interrupted..
the surgeon looked up, annoyed "I'll cut your heart open,"he continued, "to see how much damage has been done..."

"but when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in there," said the girl.

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 next."

"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,"said the girl.

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 weakened vessels. And I'll find out if I can make you well."

"You'll find Jesus there too. He lives there."

The surgeon left.



Next day: 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.
here he paused, "death within one year."

He stopped the recorder, but here was more to be said. "Why?" he asked aloud.

"Why did You do this? You've put her here; You've put her in this pain; and You've cursed her to an early death.


The Lord answered and said, "The girl, my lamb, was not meant for
your flock for long, for she is a part of My flock, and will forever be.
Here, in My flock, she will feel no pain, and will be comforted as you
cannot imagine. Her 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 girl, and You created that heart.  She will be dead in months. Why?"

The Lord answered, "The girl, My lamb, shall return to My flock, for she has done his duty. I did not put My lamb with your flock to lose her, but to retrieve another lost lamb."

The surgeon wept...

Later. . .

The surgeon sat beside the girl's bed; the girl's parents sat across from him. The girl awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open my heart?"

"Yes," said the surgeon.

"What did you find?" asked the girl.

"I found Jesus there," said the surgeon.
