Daily Gratitude Year 9- Day 201: Today, I am grateful for heart guards.
Our hearts are so important. From Cheerios commercials to reminders on our exercise trackers... the heart matters more than just about anything else.
Back in the time Solomon penned the Proverbs, modern science did not exist, yet this proverb made perfect sense. Was it wisdom? Was it obvious? Perhaps, it was a little of both.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. -Proverbs 4:23
So many things attack our minds and our spirits today. There are messages coming at us constantly. It is easy to become overwhelmed. Yet, this simple truth can help eliminate some of the "noise". We must guard our hearts above all else, and the rest falls into place.
We know that exercise and diet impact heart health. We know that knowing the Word of God and "seeking Him first" are two other factors that are game changers.
Today, I am grateful for heart guards.
