Heart Check

Heart Check

A good chunk of our time and an even greater portion of most women’s budgets is applied to our appearance.  Hair, makeup, brows/lashes, nails, and clothing are just a few of the expenses that we contribute to.  While there is nothing wrong with this, we also need to step away from the mirror and look at what it doesn’t show.  Yes, sometimes a heart check is in order.

Proverbs 4:23 warns us to guard our hearts:  “Above all else guard your heart, for it is the well spring of life”.  The passage that I share below is based on this verse.  As you read it examine your own heart, for your well-being and very life depends on the condition of your heart.

Hair slayed

Face beat

Glossy lips

Little black dress, caressing your hips

Nails tipped

Feet pedicured

Eyebrows manicured

Eyelashes fluttering

You keep them stuttering

 

Wait a minute, let’s bring the heart into it

Do you have a heart condition?

Not the kind that shows up on an echocardiogram,

But the kind that can’t be seen:

Bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, envy, jealousy, manipulation,

Just to name a few, conditions that not only harm you,

But have the power to destroy others too
