Facing our greatest fears

May I ask you a few questions:

  1. Are you worried about the past?
  2. Are you fearful about the future?
  3. Are you not happy about the present?

Every list of people’s top worries has certain common items - money problems, health, getting old, relationships and death. It would be good to not to worry but most of us do even if it’s only occasionally.

20% of people in the UK admit to loneliness!

I discovered recently that ‘1 A national commission investigating loneliness in the UK in January 2017 showed that a fifth of the population privately admits they are "always or often lonely”’.

Herbert Van Zeller, 1905-1984, once wrote ‘the soul hardly ever realises it, but whether he is believer or not, his loneliness is really a homesickness for God’. That’s quite a statement. Loneliness is deeper than a lack of company and it affects people in all stages of life.

Wonderfully Made - Part 5 - The Cells

Our fifth and final subject for study in the series is the cells, the basic building blocks of our bodies. There are an awful lot of them, about 40 trillion (million million), with a mere 35 billion, thousand million, skin cells, and around two billion cells in our hearts. 

There are about 200 different kinds of cell, including blood, muscle, skin, nerve, glandular cells, etc. Half our cells are taken up by red blood cells.

Wonderfully Made - Part 4 - The Heart

Our fourth subject for study in the series is our heart. This is our amazing blood pump, which sends about seven and a half tonnes of blood around our body every single day, delivering this fresh delivery to the tens of trillions of cells in the body through its 100,000 miles of blood vessels. Our hearts beat more than 100,000 times a day to do this job. It is hardly surprising therefore that the human heart has been called one of the biggest engineering miracles in the whole world.
