Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
When I was growing up and dating I use to cling to this verse. I guarded my heart and put the wall of China around it. I didn’t want to “fall” for the wrong guy. And when I was going through a bunch of trials with my family I clung to it even more. But I don’t think I realized what it really meant.
The past couple weeks I haven’t done a very good job of guarding my heart.
Our hearts are very powerful things, not only do the have the power to literally give us life but we feel joy and sorrow with our heart as well – it is our emotional wellspring.
The emotional wellspring is what I haven’t done a good job of protecting. I believe part of “protecting our heart” is protecting our mind, taking captive the negative thoughts that our mind tends to wander to. Or at least mine does …
Once you go down that road of negativity it’s hard to pull out, it’s like quick sand. You’re curious or even unknowing at times, you take that first step and slowly start to sink … and before you know it you’re surrounded by sand … getting ready to be buried alive.
Where has my heart gone lately?
Well, it starts out small. I was overwhelmed by moving, planning multiple events, and then I was late for my “time of the month.” I got my hopes up and then was crushed in a quick blow. I took that first step in the quick sand … self pity.
A close friend of self pity is comparison. I started to compare myself to other bloggers that I wasn’t good enough, feeling like I had to “strive” to change my situation, or even better … distracting myself with buying things, searching for affirmation for other people or planning a trip. There goes another step into the quick sand … envy and self-medication.
I could keep going but today as I was listening to some worship music I was overcome by peace and God’s presence. He calmed me down, gently wrapped his arms around me and pulled me out! I needed to go back to him not self medicate.
Ya’ll. Our hearts are so precious and so are our minds. Guard them, because out of them flows life. Where has your heart gone lately? Are you filled with joy or desperately reaching to get out of the quick sand?
