Guard Your Heart

Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

“Guarding” one’s heart (and mind)…..People immersed in an infatuation with the popular culture seem to be oblivious to how to do that or even that it needs to be done. I see time and energy spent on music that fails to uplift one’s spirit, entertainment that is downright depressing, distractions in which God has said we are not to indulge like astrology or gambling or altered states from drugs and alcohol or seeking something for nothing…..looking for the wrong things in the wrong places (if one truly wishes to have peace, contentment, joy, and other blessings in life.)

I pray that more people will realize that satan has created a false reality….he attempts to counterfeit everything that God has created and then tries to pass it off as the “Real Thing”….but his idols, in the end, can’t stand the test of truth and all will be proven false.
