Guard Your Heart

Day 1

Soul De-toxing = getting the toxins out.  The question of the day over at Soul Detox – You Version is this:

How have your toxic thoughts negatively affected your life and relationships?

via Proverbs 4 HCSB | YouVersion.com.

The reading passage for today is Proverbs 4.

If you will when you have completed your reading, comment the verses the HOLY SPIRIT highlighted for you today.

These are mine:

23Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.
24Don’t let your mouth speak dishonestly, and don’t let your lips talk deviously.

via Proverbs 4 HCSB | YouVersion.com.

Guard my heart. 

Okay. That means standing sentry over what comes into my soul by way of my senses. I see the challenge there. five-sensesAnd I see without the HOLY SPIRIT’s help, I’m sunk. How about you?

Don’t let my mouth speak dishonestly. I get that. And I might as well be truthful here with you 🙂 The HOLY SPIRIT cured me of willful lying many years ago. If I tell you an untruth, it will for sure be through ignorance.  I promise you that!

Don’t let the lips talk deviously. A worthy challenge and for sure is a factor in detoxing our souls!  Reminds me of this:

Philippians 4:8 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.

via Philippians 4:8 KJ21 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things – Bible Gateway.

So when I think THIS way, what comes from my lips for sure will NOT be devious. 

That’s plenty to chew on today — don’t you think?

Any of you IN enough to comment your ‘highlights’ for today?

See you tomorrow – ABBA willing!
