Guarding Your Heart

We live in a world today where our hearts are under attack.  We are wounded by others, we suffer from the consequences of our own sin and we struggle with deep disappointments, betrayal, offenses, rejection and abandonment.  These attacks produce hopelessness, cynicism, isolation, anger, a desire for revenge and living life in “survival mode.” But we don’t have to live this way.  The ways of God show us how to guard our hearts by running to repentance, being fast to forgive, opting out of offense, holding firm to the fear of the Lord and trending towards trust.
