One year ago today God brought me through an ordeal with my heart. In answer to many prayers and by His great mercy God showed me so much love and taught me to give all my cares to Him. Two months later my heart was completely healed! I wrote this poem a couple days after my heart attack and added the last stanza a few days ago.

Oh my heart
How it ached
From the start
My world quaked

Beneath my feet
The everlasting rock
Rescuing me
My hope unlocked

By the sin-bearer
On Calvary’s tree
Answering prayer
Redeeming me

Grace and mercy
Love unmeasured
For the unworthy
The eternal treasure

Risen to claim
His very own
Never the same
My heart of stone

Now my cares
Are His alone
The burden-bearer
On heaven’s throne!

“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26 ESV
