Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart.

Three Reasons Why You Must Guard Your Heart – Michael Hyatt

Because your heart is extremely valuable. We don’t guard worthless things. I take my garbage to the street every Wednesday night. It is picked up on Thursday morning. It sits on the sidewalk all night, completely unguarded. Why? Because it is worthless.
Not so with your heart. It is the essence of who you are. It is your authentic self—the core of your being. It is where all your dreams, your desires, and your passions live. It is that part of you that connects with God and other people.

Because your heart is the source of everything you do. King Solomon says it is the “wellspring of life.” In other words, it is the source of everything else in your life. Your heart overflows into thoughts, words, and actions.
Like natural springs, where water flows to the surface of the earth from deep under the ground. It then accumulates in pools or runs off into creeks and streams.If you plug up the spring, you stop the flow of water. If you poison the water, the flow becomes toxic. In either situation, you threaten life downstream. Everything depends on the condition of the spring.Likewise, if your heart is unhealthy, it has an impact on everything else. It threatens your family, your friends, your ministry, your career, and, indeed, your legacy. It is, therefore, imperative that you guard it.

Because your heart is under constant attack. When Solomon says to guard your heart, he implies that you are living in a combat zone—one in which there are casualties.
Many of us are oblivious to the reality of this war. We have an enemy who is bent on our destruction. He not only opposes God, but he opposes everything that is aligned with Him—including us.

Question: What was the last time your heart was attacked? How did you respond?

    Every now and then, my heart is under attack because I am a child of God. I respond by saying “Prayer To Saint Michael, the ArchAngel”. It is such a powerful prayer that keeps the devil away from me at night. I also pray the Rosary on every occasion because I know our Blessed Lady is ever ready to intercede for us all…

    The last time my heart was attacked was when I lost my sister.she was ill and I was by her bedside nursing her,I was there assuring her that I will never allow anything bad happen to her. Then she asked me to go get her a cup of ice cream,I even joked with her that I will eat it all if she did not get better,I got back and there she was lying cold n dead. I cried for weeks but after much consolations I got over it. It was not easy at all.

    M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ heart was attacked ever since I lost M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ dad & elder brother who was M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ best friend, hmmm ℓ̊Ƨ̷̜̩̌̋ not easy on me even up till now cos I still lack that fatherly luv I never had cos dad died when I was barely 2. I pray to God daily for the gift of a husband who’ll be a father, brother, lover, companion & M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ best friend.
    Tnx Steph for the good work. More of God’s strenght upon U̶̲̥̅̊я life & U̶̲̥̅̊я household. Amen
