Guard your heart, mind and time. Those three things will determine your health of everything else in your life. – Andrena Sawyer
Have you ever said something and wondered where that comment came from? Or maybe an idea crossed your mind that you wouldn’t tell your best friend about – and exactly where did that come from? Or maybe you did something completely out of character and ask yourself, what was I thinking?
Our very words, our thoughts, our choices, our decisions, and our priorities
– all these come from our hearts. When a heart is full of God’s love, beautiful words and ideas flow from it.
We are warned to guard our hearts against bitterness, impatience and greed, against jealousy, and hatred. These traits will overtake our hearts if we let them. We must also guard our hearts against unsafe people, unhealthy relationships, and ungodly activities.
Rather protect your heart so that beautiful words, ideas and actions flow from it, for your good and God’s glory.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you for flows from it.
