I have two children with very diverse heart conditions. Every six months or so, I have to take them to the cardiologist. Now this man, I am sure, is very busy considering he is one of the few who work in pediatric cardiology locally. We have been to this man a lot over the past several years. Of course, I know him right away when I see him but he does not seem to know his patients right away AT FIRST. But this man has such a uniqueness about him that caught my eye. Once he listens to the child’s heart, he remembers their history right away. He can recall the medicine that my son is on and the surgical procedure my daughter has had. He didn’t look at their charts. He listened to their heartbeat. He knew their differences and their problems. He remembered the discussions we had talked about prior to the current visit and if we were going to proceed with any of those procedures or explore other avenues. It is truly a gift this man has!
Of course it got me to thinking about another physician, THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, and His ability to perform such great feats and more. He knows the conditions of our hearts. He knows the irregular heartbeat we may be experiencing, or the hole we may have in our heart. He knows when our heart is beating for Him or not. He knows when our lips are saying stuff about him but our hearts are far from Him. That to me is phenomenal!
I then had to think about can I do a role reversal? Can I hear his heartbeat? Do I know how He is? Do I know His procedures so that they can be followed out?
