Week #46 Proverbs 4:23

Proverbs 4:23

“Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.”

Happy Veterans Day to all of my Veteran friends!  I thank you dearly for your selfless service to our country and pray for your continued peace and protection.

It is hard to believe we are in the middle of November already!  For many, this time of year for many marks the preparation for the amazing holidays ahead and for reflection on all the memories already made.

Part of my reflection is the journey of these weekly “Wisdom Wellspring” page posts.  Each one has taken shape in a way that reflects where the Lord is taking me that particular week.  This weeks verse, Proverbs 4:23, is the verse I chose because putting the Word of God at the forefront of our minds creates a mighty fortress; a fortress that will guard our hearts above everything else.   Our heart is a wellspring that our choices, our attitudes, our responses, and our wisdom flow.

What is the overflow of your heart?

How is your security system?  ~~  Do you need an upgrade?

Philippians 4:6-7 is a good place to start when looking for guidance on a security upgrade.  Check out this related “wisdom wellspring” post.  Click here.

Keep the wellspring of your life vibrant with the living water of God’s Word and watch your life  and those around you flourish!

Week #44 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

  1 Corinthians 16:13-14

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.”

What does it mean to do everything in love?  Let’s apply this to our relationships.  Why would I take that leap? I am doing it because  here in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians he starts and ends addressing relationship issues within the church.  1 Corinthians is full of rich instruction that crescendos with his description of what love is meant to look like in our relationships.

How do we apply the “Be” and “Do” statements in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 to our relationships?

Be on our guard in love…….

Stand firm in the faith in love………

Be courageous in love……….

Be strong in love………….

Our relationships have times that call for us to be on guard,  to stand firm in our faith, to be courageous, and to be strong is part of living a life of love like Jesus.  All throughout his ministry on earth he left examples of how to love people well with strength, courage, and standing as a firm guard of the faith.   Love fulfills the greatest commands and knows no boundaries.

 I have room for improvement how about you?

Love is….. kind, patient, it rejoices in truth, it always–protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres– never fails.

Love is not…… boastful, envious, prideful, self-seeking, angered easily, or delight in evil.

Week # 29 Philippians 4:6-7

Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer is our anchor that secures the peace of God in our lives.  We  are able to rise above the circumstances of life through trusting thankfulness with the Lord’s peace guarding our hearts and minds.

 

Anxiousness is a weight that pulls us away from the amazing peace of God.  Let’s remember to stay anchored in prayer through ALL the circumstances of life and rise above!
