“Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life” Proverbs 4:23.
We have an enemy who attacks our minds on a daily basis in hope to demolish anything we put our hands to. He is out to destroy our family, marriage, purpose, and ultimately our lives. The Bible is clear: The heart is the seat of all of our emotions and will. It is the essence of who we are. We must guard what our hearts’ meditate on if we desire to walk in victory and bring Heaven to earth.
What we think, becomes what we say. What we say, becomes who we are.
As women who desire to live a life of purpose, we must be committed to guarding our hearts. A woman saturating her heart with the word of God will grow in wisdom and “all her ways will be established” Proverbs 4:26.
There is no other way to guard our hearts without growing in the Word of God.
God has given us one book to base our lives on, and we must be committed to knowing and believing it. This is when we know we need each other. I need you. We were never meant to do this alone; live this Christian life as an island. Feeling like we are alone is what overwhelms us.
I have spent evening after evening washing dishes at the kitchen sink, unable to capture all my thoughts. I will never measure up. Will I ever get this mothering thing right? Why am I still struggling with so many issues? Will this impossible mountain ever move? What if others find out I am really just a mess?
Feeling like no one understood.
And then I met others, who also stood at the kitchen sink alone in their thoughts. And then slowly the Lord placed Thoughts at the Kitchen Sink on my heart. A series to draw women together to feel less alone and more purposeful in their thinking.
I have asked other writers to join me in this blog series every Thursday, because sometimes we need others to help us hear our own hearts, since our very hearts deceive us (Jer. 17:9).
Now is the time for us to transform our thoughts and allow His Word to perform its work in our lives – if we will commit to it. Will you join me every Thursday at Thoughts at the Kitchen Sink?
Join me in #thoughtsatthekitchensink with devotionals from other writers in your inbox every Thursday.
