Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
In life I haven’t always guarded my heart. I’ve allowed it to be broken in relationships, its been strained in pregnancy, its been torn in childhood, but as I learned from King Solomon’s Proverb concerning the matters of the heart-I’m much better at this protective skill called guarding.
Many have wondered why some individuals withdraw themselves from people and situations, but they never truly seek in their own hearts to find out the why. Instead, said wonders spiral into misconceptions and assumptions about individuals who withdraw. Ultimately, withdrawal is a protective stance that many hurt and wounded people use to guard their hearts from further hurt.
It is wise to always remain vigilant, watchful, and keep a hawk’s eye view concerning those allowed into your heart. The human heart is one of the most important sources in our bodies-allow no one or anything to hurt, disease, or tear yours apart. Be as shrewd as a serpent, and as gentle as a dove with your heart.
