The hidden heart is somewhat of a way to see into my heart and mind. My mind has a constant whirlpool of thoughts that is never ending. Some thoughts are dark and some are bright. I am a 22 year-old male that has a heart that most men do not have. I can be soft-hearted but when need be, can have a heart of steel. I am an Elementary Education Major with an emphasis Language Arts with a minor in Fitness Education. I love sports, being out-doors, traveling, coffee and being my gregarious self.
Why go to Church? If you’re spiritually alive, you’re going to love this! If you’re spiritually dead, you won’t want to read it. If you’re spiritually curious, there is still hope.
Why go to Church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that made no sense to go to church every Saturday. “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, ” and in the time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So. I think I’m wasting my time and the pastor’s are wasting their time by giving sermons at all.”
This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
"I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But. for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this. They all nourished me and gave me strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing….God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, “Jesus, could you get that for me?”

Our objective is to do the work of Jesus, the job of John, and Abraham, to teach the world the great spiritual truth, that we are slow to learn and ready to forget. In ourselves we are completely incapable of doing any good thing; but what we cannot do, the power of God will be brought upon every permissive and believing soul!

"Throughout life people will make you mad,
disrespect you and treat you bad.
Let God deal with the things they do,
‘cause hate in your heart will consume you too.”
