DAILY DEVO...guard your heart!


Our heart (literally) beats life. Anyone knows without a heart, one cannot live. 

But in today's Scripture reading,       we read that it is out of our heart that all issues of life come from...

(Proverbs 4:23) "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

The heart is a mysterious thing to me. With each beat, our heart is saturated with emotion. It is where we can be happy and sad, all at the same time. 

The Bible actually speaks of the heart often: it can be grieved, broken, pierced, divided and be full of joy. 

Our heart is the very expression of who we really are. This is why it is imperative that we guard what we allow in. 

Heart disease is probably one of fastest growing diseases there is. Once diagnosed with a heart condition, life altering changes usually are a must in order to live a full life. 

Spiritually speaking, when we allow the wrong things into our heart, it isn't long before disease sets in. This kind of heart disease is called sin and without a life altering change, our hearts cannot be whole.

Guard your heart - for what you fill it with will surely come flowing out. 

HAVE A BLESSED (and hearty) DAY! Laurie

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING:  Isaiah 52-54, Galatians 4:12-31, Proverbs 4:20-27
