“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23
“Oh dear, guard your heart.”
How many times have you heard about this advice? How many times have you given this advice?
I, for example, when I was still in my baby steps in my Christian walk, had a conversation on this with one of our female church leaders. It went something like this..
“What will I do Ate? I can’t stop thinking about him.”
“Dear, you really have to guard your heart.”
“Surrender it to God. Pray about it.”
*blankly stared at her and just nodded in agreement but obviously didn’t understand a thing*
I mean, surrendering it to the Lord has always been part of the equation. Praying about it is a must. But what I needed that time were concrete steps. What are the things I should be start doing? What are the things I need to stop thinking about? How do I guard my heart?
