You have a role in maintaining a healthy mind and heart. Invite God to help you guard the wellspring of your soul.
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
Father God, I confess that I have not paid enough attention to what is going on in my heart and mind. I realize I have not been guarding my heart and what has been bubbling up from my wellspring is often fearful and negative.
I’m sorry for the sour reactions this often causes me to have.
Please help me to be aware of what I allow to settle into my heart. Remind me, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, to guard my heart today. Help me to choose to pay attention to what parades through my thoughts.
Fill me with Your peace and joy, as I trust in You. May the overflow of my heart be filled with the confident expectation that You are with me and You will guide me and help me so that Your name gets all the praise.
I pray this in the name of Jesus, my Savior and my Lord. Amen.
