Guard Your Heart

“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. – Proverbs 4:23

Exactly two years ago this week, I was waking up in intensive care at the Heart Center of Pitt County Memorial Hospital after my heart attack.

I’ve learned a lot since then and done some things I knew then I should have been doing. A lot of my diet was destructive to my heart health and I had to determine to make some changes to ensure I wasn’t hurting my heart.

While this is a truth physically, it is also true spiritually. What we take in, what we dwell upon, and how we “exercise” our heart spiritually either help, or hurt, our heart.

If we allow impure and destructive thoughts and ideas, we are taking in an unhealthy diet for our spiritual heart. When we don’t spend time in God’s Word, prayer, fellowship and acts of faith, we are failing to exercise and do the things which cause our heart to grow stronger spiritually.

The verse above reminds us that while there are a lot of important things we do, maintaining our spiritual heart health should be a top priority. After all, the heart is the center of our health.

My prayer for you this week is that you will indeed guard your heart with all diligence – and your life will be blessed as a result.
