103,680 Times and 43 Million Miles

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

Let me remind you to sign up to get your picture made for the church directory. There are still openings. If you have already signed up, remember when you come to get your picture made to come in Entrance 3, in the front of the church. Entrance 3 sits back and is between the worship center and the glass tower in the front of the campus. You can go to our web page, hhbc.net and look for the Life Touch link to sign up.

How often have you heard or repeated the passage, "We are fearfully and wonderfully made"? Well, each day the human heart beats 103,680 times, pushing the blood some 43 million miles. On an average day you'll inhale 438 cubic feet of air while taking some 23,000 breaths. You will, on average, digest three and one-fourth pounds of food and drink a half gallon of liquid. Pretty amazing when you realize all of that is happening automatically without us even thinking about it. Well you might say the food and drink part takes some thought but overall your body functions without you even thinking about it.

The Bible tells us that while it takes scientist to understand all of the above God knows us intimately and understands us as no one else does. In Psalm 139:1-4 David says, "O Lord you have searched me and you know me. . . You perceive my thoughts from afar. . . You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely".
