Guard Your Gates Of Your Heart

by Hazel Straub

It important to guard what we allow into our eye gates and ear gates. If we input fear, doom, and gloom through our eyes and ears, we will think about these things. The negative thoughts lodge in our hearts (our mind, will, and resulting emotions), to birth anxiety, fear, doubt, and toxic emotions that will flow heedlessly, from our mouths and cause regret and much harm. Guard your mouth gate, so your life will go well.

Our lives go much better when we guard the input that comes into our hearts. Choose to think on the good and not the negative. Have another thought and focus on God’s goodness and blessings. Take a Bible verse and think on it.

So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always. (Philippians 4:8 TPT)

Guard your heart more than anything else, because the source of your life flows from it. (Proverbs 4:23 GWT)

    • We choose what we listen to and what we watch. If we don’t watch the news and refuse to listen to gossip, while thinking on the good. An eagle has a different perspective and views things from the heights.

  7. Now this is a great reminder to us all. Thank you because we only get into trouble when we fail to protect ourselves from all the world wants to pour into us via our eyes and ears. God Bless You Hazel.
