What do all the numbers on the monitor mean? I anxiously asked the nurse.
My husband went into respiratory distress. Twenty nurses entered the room and pushed me out into the hallway. In less than 10 minutes, the angels in scrubs moved my man to the Critical Care Unit for his protection.
I learned to watch the numbers. They told a story. If the levels started to drop, immediate intervention was required.
My hubby is happy to be home now and unstrapped from all the wires, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t keeping a watchful eye on his health.
We are keenly alert to the signs of distress now and are determined to make wise choices that will breathe life and strength into his body, mind, and spirit.
Lately, I’ve wondered what my numbers would be if The Master Physician hooked me up to a screen that monitored my spiritual pulse.
I desperately want my heart to beat wildly for my Jesus.
I want to learn how to make healthy choices that will help me pass the stress test of life before emergency intervention is required.
How to Monitor Your Heart:
- Stay Active: I need to exercise my faith even when it’s uncomfortable and I’d rather stand on the sidelines.
- Digest Healthy Fare: I must say no to junky appetites that clog up my spiritual arteries and slow down my pace. Say yes to the Bread of Life.
- Shed the Excess Weight: God has set me free from sin and condemnation. Let go of the guilt and regret. Hold on to His unending grace that lightens my step.
How’s your heart? Maybe it’s time to get a spiritual check up before it’s too late.
