A Piece of Your Heart!

Share with your friends on Facebook

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, perhaps the best and most sincere television evangelist ever, reflected once on the shape of the human heart:

“The human heart is not shaped like a Valentine heart, perfect and regular in contour; it is slightly irregular in shape as if a small piece of it were missing out of its side. 

“That missing part may very well symbolize a piece that a spear tore out of the universal heart of humanity on the cross of Jesus, but it probably symbolizes something more. 

“It may very well mean that when God created each human heart, he kept a small sample of it in heaven, and sent the rest of it into the world of time where it would each day learn the lesson that it could never be really happy, never be really wholly in love, and never be really wholehearted until it went back again to the timeless to recover the sample which God had kept for all eternity.

“A piece of your heart is in the heart of God, and in tune with what God is trying to tell you, among the thorns and under the dark ugly clouds. You can hear it, and know, but you need to know that you can hear it, like the suffering servant.”

You and I go through our lives looking for a true love, a fulfilling love, a perfect love. But we can never find it. Why? Because we never had a perfect heart to begin with. God was always saving a piece of our heart for himself in heaven. Only when we die and go and find that piece of our heart that God has been saving for us, will we have a true and perfect love.

Has a “true” love, a “perfect” love, ever let YOU down?  Will YOU only find that true love, that perfect love when YOU meet the Lord?

YOU WEREN’T PUT ON EARTH TO BE REMEMBERED. YOU WERE PUT ON EARTH TO BE RE-MEMBERED IN HEAVEN!!
