Metaphoric Moment

treeHave you ever experienced being in a hospital room? All you can hear is the Electrocardiograph (EKG) machines making the beeping sounds.  It can be pretty intimidating at times. When you look at the machine you see lines that go up and down, up and down as the person in the hospital bed is breathing. That machine is the indication of the life that’s it’s hooked up to.  As the person breathes, the lines go up and down. This is their lifeline reading on the machine.

People, in the world we live in today we have many ups and downs as we go through trials, tribulations and joy and through it all, JESUS is our lifeline.  He is the reason we live.

From a metaphoric perspective, as you look at the lines go up and down on that EKG machine, remember as long as were on this earth breathing; there will always be ups and downs. It’s not until you STOP BREATHING, that the line on that machine goes straight. It’s not until you STOP BREATHING on earth, that your worries will go away with no ups and downs and you can be fully FREE in heaven. This is when you will have true life with no worries.

My advice to friends is to live in the moment with God by your side. God says that you will have troubles (John 16:33) and that in those troubles; He will not give you anything that you can’t handle (1 Cor 10:13).

My EKG machine means Everyone Keep God”…because you need Him to live.
