What is the condition of my heart?

Psalm 86:11 NRSV
Teach me Your way, O Lord,
that I may walk in Your truth;
give me an undivided heart to revere Your name.


What is the condition of my heart?

Sickness is Discouraging But.....

A poor shoemaker in his dreary little shop in a great city, one day noticed that there was one little place in his dark room, from which he could get a view of green fields, blue skies and faraway hills. He wisely set up his bench at that point, so that at any moment he could lift his eyes from his dull work--and have a glimpse of the great, beautiful world outside.

In Sickness and in Health

When does a person think about health? For me, this question surfaced when I was sick, when I was far from healthy. For years I thought I was a healthy person. My doctors had declared how healthy and strong I was for my age. Then, very much to my surprise, I discovered that I had cancer. Health flew from my mind and disease and debilitation and death took health's place. The plain and simple fact that a biopsy had found a significant cancer in my body immediately effected my identity. My sense of self was instantaneously altered . I became, from that hour of discovery, different. I was no longer healthy. Who was I? I was no longer even myself, but a cancer victim, and might soon become a cancer survivor. Whatever the outcome of this dread discovery, I thought I would never be the same.

Is it true that illness or problems in my life are because of my sin?

If that were true, who would be healthy? Furthermore, what sins have the starving children in third-world countries committed? The answer to your question is a resounding, NO! You face illness and problems in this life because of the fallen state of this world, not as personal judgment.
