“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.”
Our “heart” represents the center of our emotions, thinking, and reasoning. So it makes sense for this verse to stress the importance of keeping our hearts with all diligence. Our heart is our essence. It’s the deepest part of us from which our dreams, desires, passions, motives, thoughts, emotions, decisions, and actions arise. Our heart determines the course of our lives, both here and beyond. In our journey to be women of God we determine the rate and growth of our spiritual advancements in our relationship with the Lord. In all aspects of life God gives all of us the freedom and opportunity to decide what we will or will not do, or whether we’ll grow or not. God will take us as far as we want to go and as fast as we want to go but we must remain diligent in Gods word and guidance. With Gods grace and in His strength we can accomplish much more than we can even imagine on our own. The Lord will give us the wisdom and the perseverance we need as long as we remember to ask for it. Let’s keep God in our hearts and He’ll take care of the rest.
