Guard!

Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”

That verse is often used to teach on sexual purity and lust. However, it can also be applied to discouragement that comes from a downcast spirit! Let me explain!

God desires that we guard our hearts from people who drain us! Yes, we must love everyone warts and all, but we must also spend a little time with people who fill us and not constantly drain us! With an attitude of love, be very selective about who gets backstage access into your life. You cannot let just anyone speak into your soul. Be careful whom you share your dreams with. Their negativity can contaminate the possibility before it ever has a chance to become a reality. Be careful whom you take advice from. Everything flows from your heart. It is the wellspring of life. Guard it!

Put your hope in God! Life is more than just a roll of the dice. Our God is an ever-present help in times of trouble!
