Gathering in Christ

Psalm 38:10
My heart pants, my strength fails me; as for the light of my eyes, it has also gone from me.

There are people you come into contact with who “freeze” you; you cannot think; things do not “go” -- everything feels tight and mean; you come into the zone of other people and all those bands disappear; you are surprised how at clearly you can think, everything seems to “go” better. The one personality brought on an atmosphere that froze the heart not only physically, but psychically; kept it cold, kept it down, kept it back; the other personality gave the heart a chance to expand and develop and surge throughout the whole body… Anything that keeps the physical blood in good condition and the heart working properly benefits the soul life and spirit life as well. That is why Jesus Christ said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of life.”
