It’s my mom’s birthday today, so I thought I’d dedicate this post to her.
Happy Birthday, Mama!
The older I get in life the more lessons I realize my mom has taught me. I want to focus on just one thing that has rippled through my life since I can remember.
Guarding my heart
◄ Proverbs 4:23 ►
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
It seems like a simple lesson. Guard your heart.
But how many of us guard our hearts on a daily basis? What does that actually mean?
Growing up, Mom guarded our hearts.
- If we started fighting, she’d guard our hearts from strife.
- If something yucky came on TV she’d guard our eyes from it.
- If she didn’t think we should hang out with someone; she’d guard our hearts from them.
Where some may look at guarding as: being over protective etc. As a child I didn’t see it that way, I saw it as Mom’s protecting me. I literally knew things my mom did was for my benefit and not my harm.
Sound like anyone you know?
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God guards our hearts.
- The thing about this guarding heart business is that you have to believe that the one guarding it has your best interest in mind. Even though maybe I didn’t agree with my mom 100% all the time, I knew deep down she was guarding my heart. Now looking back I see all the ways she protected me.
Allow God to guide your heart, and remember, Moms, to guard your babies hearts too!

There will be one. One who rises above them all… Or so the prophecy foretells.
Threatened, degraded, his humanity ripped away, Lend is forced into slavery. He never expected to fall for the feisty, redheaded alien, Lila.
Citizens are aliens, they don’t feel. The problem is Lila does, and she is tempted by her handsome, dark-haired, brooding slave, Lend.
But love between Citizens and humans is forbidden. His life on the line, Lend must flee, colliding straight into a force that may be the salvation of the planet.
Is he the one who will rise above them all?
