Consumed Hearts

The Astronomy BLAST OFF camp went wonderfully well today. I was so thankful for my mom and the boys. It could not have happened without them. (I was thankful for Hannah's help too!) Thankfully, Mason, Franklin, and Weston lauched the rocket and had the Diet Coke explosion before the rain started! When I study or teach Astronomy I'm amazed by the magnitude of God's creation!

"The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge." Psalm 19:1-2

My friend, Kim, forwarded this to me today from the Pastor at Calvary Chapel, Aurora. As I read it, I wondered, "What would the world look like if our hearts were truly consumed with HIM?"

Read on...

Psalm 107:21-22 NKJV Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with rejoicing.

If you like to read, I'd encourage you to pick up any books you can find by Vance Havner. God uses him in a way to stir the soul, much like AW Tozer. Consider these words today as you seek to grow in grace:

"We need a heart warming.... The early Christians did not need a shot in the arm every Sunday to keep them going. They knew Jesus and they upset the world and worried the devil and gave wicked rulers insomnia and started something the jails couldn't lock up, fire couldn't burn, water couldn't drown, swords couldn't kill....
You may belittle experience and speak of the dangers of emotion, but we are suffering today from a species of Christianity as dry as dust, as cold as ice, as pale as a corpse, and as dead as King Tut. We are suffering, not from a lack of correct heads but of consumed hearts."

May our hearts be consumed with Jesus!
