Heavy Lifting Heart

Nov 18, 2022 | Blog | 0 comments

The heart is an amazing organ that works tirelessly. Did you know it starts pumping after being in your mom’s womb at about day 22 of conception? 

When you’re bigger, the heart does a lot more work. It grows about the size of your fist, and it pumps blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels in your body, nearly three trips around the Earth!

How fast is your heartbeat? The average person heartbeats about 60 to 100 times each minute or about 1.5 gallons of blood, that’s almost 788,400 gallons a year! And, If you multiply that by a minute a day, your heart beats more than 100,000 times in a day. Each time the muscle in our heart pumps it puts out about enough force to squeeze a tennis ball. And this amazing muscle can squeeze and pump even faster when you’re exercising excited, nervous or scared. 

God is the faithful Creator who sustains our internal operating system. Next time you hear a heartbeat, remember to thank Him for providing a heart filled with His love, courage, strength, and a daily opportunity to grow the Word inside our hearts.
