guard your heart

23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs4

Your heart is a very fragile thing. It is susceptible to

jealousy...
envy...
want...
emptiness...
pain...
abandonment...
betrayal...
disappointment...
loss...
failure...
lies...
denial...
suffering...
despondency...

You cannot shield your life from the above feelings or states of existence because they are a part of life. But you can protect your heart. If the joy of the Lord overflows every ounce of your heart, these feelings cannot penetrate. They cannot invade. They cannot overcome. Despite the mishaps of life, you will be strong because your wellspring has not been tampered. Guard your heart with God's love and seal it with His spirit and power.
