Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
God is able to keep my heart if I let Him. He gives me wisdom to know who to let close to me, as in friends, He knows those who are trustworthy and those who are not. I don’t believe I am to trust everyone, because there are those that will hurt me and cause my heart much pain. The Lord wants me to forgive so my heart is not full of bitterness and I will be able to love others as I love myself. Everything I say and do flow from my heart. That is why the Lord God has given me a heart of flesh and taken away the heart of stone I once had. As I stated previously, God is able to keep my heart, but I have a responsibility also. I have to be careful in what I let in it. I have to be careful in what I watch on television, and what I see in the papers, and I have to listen to the Holy Spirit when He warns me about anyone I meet. Its important to guard my heart, because it is the wellspring of life.
