We may fear that we could get hurt unless we guard our hearts. We may not want to open up or share with others because it makes us feel vulnerable. Besides protecting ourselves, we need to guard our hearts because it drives our actions!
We may not always be able to guard our hearts on our own. When the world pushes in, it may begin to break through our best defenses. If we want our hearts to be secure, we can call on God. He can help us! Not only can He help guard our hearts, but He can also help by filling our hearts with His love. With a guarded heart filled with God's love, we can be sure that what we do follow's God's will!
Ask God to both help you guard your heart and to fill it with His love!
Thank You for Your love and for guarding my heart. Help me to follow You and to allow Your love to shine through me. In Jesus I pray, amen.
