Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it..
Everything comes from the heart---our words, our thoughts, our choices, our decisions, our priorities, our emotions.
If we have received your son, Jesus, and been born again, you live in us. Your Spirit came to dwell in our hearts when we were baptized. You filled us with your love, and want us to share that love with others.
When my heart is full of your love, beautiful words and ideas flow from it. If I walk outside your love, my heart becomes a black hole of negative emotions and decisions.
Father, help me to protect my heart against bitterness, impatience, and greed, against jealousy, idolatry, and anger. These traits can overtake our hearts so quickly if we let them.
Guard my heart against unsafe people, unhealthy relationships, and ungodly activities and entertainment.
Protect my heart so that beautiful words, ideas, and actions can flow from it, for your glory!
