Mindy and Cindy have had heart problems for years. The doctors have loaded them with meds and begged them to consider various intrusive treatments. Both ladies have weaned themselves off a lot of meds. Both have been threatened with imminent death by the doctors, for decades now, as a result of their not submitting to the medical procedures.
Only problem is, both are Noble Subjects with an international engagement in the Kingdom, and they are too busy being life giving and transformational to conveniently fit death into their schedules any time soon.
Meanwhile, life is a roller coaster for them. Both have really good seasons where their hearts behave nicely. Both have no security that their hearts will behave on any given day. Both have some known minor triggers which they can usually avoid, but it is clear that there is something above and beyond the known triggers that messes with their hearts.
Both have had a lot of ministry. Neither would claim to have it all together.
The randomness of the variations in the heart suggests that there is something besides lifestyle and emotions affecting the heart’s functionality. I know both hearts have been damaged, but the fact remains that both hearts work quite nicely for extended periods of time, before going sideways. There is surely a spiritual component here, whether from their internal world, or from outside, that is contributing to the illogical results.
Please pray that God would guide us to the specific verses in Scripture that would illuminate the underpinning of the spiritual dynamics of the human heart. If we found that key starting point, I believe that a great amount of our research on the heart would accelerate.
