A man in a boat had a leak. Using a small container he scooped up the water and poured it overboard.
Soon a storm came and the leak became huge and so he prayed, “Oh God, please let me survive and I promise you my heart!”
Then he grabbed a 5 gallon bucket and frantically threw water overboard, and soon the storm stopped and he was able to fix the leak.
Then a small voice came to him saying, “I was there all along… and when you were afraid you put your heart into using that 5 gallon bucket… and I was able to help you.”
And so it is that we must seek God with our heart and He will make us strong.
“Oh God, I give YOU my heart to make it strong”
Dr. Paul Haider
