“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
I came across this verse in my Bible reading this week. What does it mean to “guard your heart”? For me, it means not allowing anything into it that would cause me to sin. Some of the ways I guard my heart daily are by reading His Word, spending time in His presence, listening to worship music — allowing Him to fill every crack and crevice of my heart. My attitudes about the different roles I play in my life come out of my heart. My relationships with God, family, friends; my job; church and ministry; and even blogging will either reflect a heart fully at rest in the Lord, or a heart that is striving to accomplish things on her own. My desire is to have a heart that is right before the Lord, free from the bondage of sin, so that I can return the blessings that He has given to me.
