Guard your heart

Guard Your Heart

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NLT)

Have you ever had a time in your life where you experienced a deep hurt for your children and carried a grudge toward others? I have!  It is an indescribable pain that leads to hours of misery.  There is only one way to turn it around and it doesn’t involve the word YOU at all.

I decided one day that my bitterness and hurt feelings were exhausting.  I prayed for God to take away my bitterness and hurt.

For a while, it was an everyday prayer. Then I read a devotional that explained that getting rid of my hurts isn’t easy but asking God to guard my heart would do something that I could not do for myself.

It is all about entrusting it to God to give me the strength to not be so sensitive to situations that are hurtful.

Counting My Blessings,

About Susan Browder

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”  Hebrews 11:1 I grew up in a small town in Alabama called Boligee. I am a wife and a mom to two sons, Nick who is 24 and married to his sweet wife, Mallory, and Jacob who is 18.  My husband, Nicky, is a person of who I am so proud. Our lives changed forever on September 6, 2014 about 7:00 pm. Our son, Jacob, had an accident that would deeper our faith in God and challenge us in ways we never dreamed. My prayer is that our story will encourage others in their struggles with life altering experiences. My writing will be our testimonies but more than that it is about how we have a loving, caring God that carries us through the most difficult times of our lives.
