8 WAYS TO GUARD YOUR HEART, SO YOU NEVER FEEL HEARTBREAK AGAIN!
This scripture doesn’t mean what we think it means. We just never read the rest of the Proverb!
When we think of the phrase guard your heart, we can be tempted to conjure up images of a masculine soldier upholding a fortress around your heart.
This is not what it means AT ALL. Today on The Black Church Podcast w/Nasa Bawa, I’ll be walking you through these 8 steps and giving you a solution on how we might work this situation out! So many Christian folks know this scripture but never really read it all the way through!
If we were confused on HOW to guard the Heart, the Proverb was very clear on the actions needed.
Put away thee a froward mouth. (habitually disposed to opposition)
- Put away perverse lips (stop being judgment & critical)
- Let thine eyes look right on (keep looking forward, never looking to the past)
- Let thine eyelids look straight before thee (look inside when trouble comes)
- Ponder the path of thy feet (reflect and spend time strategizing before you make a move)
- Let all thy ways be established (don’t be wishy-washy. Know what you want and go for it)
- Turn not to the right hand or the left (stop looking at everything around you to the solutions to your issues)
- Remove thy foot from evil (turn away from things that keep you away from your highest destiny.)
The Heart Energy Center dictates how we FEEL about things, and our FEELINGS affect our thoughts, and our thoughts affect our behaviors.
So when we have resentment, sadness, and distrust in our hearts, then this is how we will operate in our lives. When we live in a damaged heart energy center, we make a life based on pleasure and pain avoidance which is unfortunately not the way to make the heart happy! The heart is actually the healthiest when it is guarded by self-love, awareness, keen decision making, and an ability to keep yourself out of bad situations!!
When your heart center is off, you will feel hard-hearted, brokenhearted, unhappy, lonely, insecure, easily hurt, or unable to receive love. As a result, one might choose to lead with the head and not the heart, grow distant from others, put up walls, shut down emotionally, or hold onto resentment or bitterness.
Does this sound familiar. Watch the Black Church Podcast, and I’ll be sharing more about how we balance this center and learn the proper ways to KEEP our hearts.
