Guard Your Heart

Proverbs 4:23


I have a personality that is always planning. As an entertainer, I find myself visualizing the stage, considering different setups, and planning the songs I will perform. Thinking about the crowd and audience who will be there is also a big part of my preparation. This tendency to plan meticulously stems from experiences in my youth when unexpected events would catch me off guard, leaving me feeling unprepared and uneasy. Surprises are not something I particularly enjoy.


Proverbs 4:23 speaks to me on a personal level, urging me to guard my heart as it is the wellspring of life. In my understanding, the heart represents the core of our being, where emotions, thoughts, and decisions originate. While we often hear the advice to "follow your heart," the biblical perspective offers a different insight, cautioning against the deceptive nature of our hearts. This wisdom prompts me to be vigilant, seeking inner guidance and allowing a higher power to watch over and direct my actions.


In my everyday life, I am influenced by various factors such as the media I consume, the books I read, the music I listen to, and the company I keep. Despite my efforts to plan and prepare, unexpected events can still blindside me, reminding me of my vulnerability to external influences. Turning to the word of God for guidance shields me from being blindsided, offering a source of wisdom to navigate life's uncertainties and complexities.


I believe in the importance of seeking spiritual grounding and aligning my actions with divine teachings to find clarity and purpose. Rather than solely relying on my own instincts, I strive to follow a path guided by faith and higher wisdom. This shift from following my heart to aligning with godly principles brings a deeper sense of fulfillment and direction to my life journey. #ProverbsADay #ChristianInspiration
