Heart Of Gold

Music HighwayHello. I do not know who you are, but God does. Do you by any chance know the story of David and Goliath? That story is found in the Bible and I believe it actually occurred. It is about boy named David who, using his slingshot, struck a giant in the forehead with a stone – killing him instantly. That giant was threatening David, his family, his nation, his whole world for that matter! Goliath had been taunting anyone who would dare challenge him to the death. David accepted the challenge. He was victorious.

The Bible says that David was a man after God’s own heart. Question: Was David always that way? I say, no. I believe that he responded after God touched his heart. Like God’s own heart, David’s heart became precious. He had a heart of gold.

Are you right now looking for a  person, someone, anyone, with a heart of gold? Are you asking yourself if there are people who are genuinely honest, who are peace-loving, and who truly love others? I believe, yes. These people are the Christians that you may have heard about. They are not perfect. But they, like David, have God’s way written by the finger of God onto their hearts.

How can you you identify them? That is between you and God. But you can easily spot them as they gather together, pray and sing praises of honor to Jesus Christ. They will continue doing so even in countries that ban their worship. They will sing praises of honor to Jesus Christ even as they are being imprisoned, tortured and killed.

Many will love and forgive their persecutors even to their dying breath. Many of their wives seeing their husbands suffer for not denying their faith in Jesus, will receive comfort, relief and strength from God to forgive the evil done against them and their families. Why? Because they have a heart of gold from the heart of God.

DavidandGoliathYou may say there is no God. I understand. And God hears you. Yet, you seek good people. I will again tell you that they exist.

There may be no Christians around you. Perhaps your country, your town or your relatives have banned them. I understand. I hear you. And so does God. Yet, you seek answers and meaning to life.

To this I will only tell you that, although there may be no Christians (people with hearts of gold) near you, God may want you, right now, to have a heart of gold so that others who seek for believers in Christ, will find you.

You may ask what good is having a heart of gold in this violent and hapless world. I understand. And God hears you. But let me tell you this, the world that you now see, with all of its problems, conflicts and selfishness, will one day be no more. Why? Because there is a Rock, Jesus Christ, who is coming soon. And He, like the stone slung from David’s slingshot, will strike this world, this Goliath with all its evils, to its end. Those with hearts of gold will sing praises of honor to Him. Will you be one of them?

I know God is with you now at this very moment. I know He will help you. Prayers from many are with you now, my friend. Take care.

I want to live,
I want to give
I’ve been a miner
for a heart of gold
It’s these expressions
I never give
Gold labelThat keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old

I’ve been to Hollywood
I’ve been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean
for a heart of gold
I’ve been in my mind,
it’s such a fine line
That keeps me searching
Harvestfor a heart of gold
And I’m getting old
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old

Keep me searching
for a heart of gold
You keep me searching
And I’m growing old
I’ve been a miner
for a heart of gold
Keep me searching
for a heart of gold
