Help For the Troubled Heart, Part 1

October 30, 2016 Speaker: Steve Garcia Series: The Gospel of John

Topic: Help For the Troubled Heart Passage: John 14:1–14:8

Question: How many times does a heart beat in a lifetime?

A) 2.5 million  
B) 2.5 billion  
C) 2.5 trillion 
D) 2.5 gazillion

  B) 2.5 billion

Every day, your heart beats (expands and contracts) an impressive 100,000 times. That adds up to more than 2.5 billion heartbeats in the average lifetime.  And here’s a fun fact: According to Harvard Health Publications, your heart can actually skip a beat. These “palpitations” can feel like your heart is fluttering, throbbing, flip-flopping, or pounding. It can feel like a heart attack or just a general sense of unease. In other words, when you’re going through something, you can feel it in your heart. 

This morning, Steve brings us a message for people who carry a heavy load. Know anyone like that? Steve’s message is called “Help For the Troubled Heart” (Good News for This Life and The Life to Come).
