Memory Verse: Proverbs 4:23

Proverb 4:23
Above all else, guard your
heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

I am in a constant battle for the condition and state of my heart, we all are. Daily there is a brutal fight going on inside that often no one can see but that we can feel. Victories are won and sometimes lost. More victories will be won when the realization of how important our armor is as we stand guard. Standing naked and defenseless will find us devoured and conquered, put on your armor, grab your sword each day, put on your belt, your boots, your shield and your helmet and breastplate, they are essential in this daily war! Our hearts are the abundant source, the well, that our life draws from so let us examine what has been filling our hearts and let us make the neccessary changes for...

The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.
Luke 6:25

Thanks again Sarah for the encouragement!

I love this verse from Luke! It is so true that our words come from what is in our hearts. I've not had a very good heart lately. Trying to work on that. This post is great! Love and Prayers, Julie
