"Her heart was a secret garden, and the walls were very high."
This quote has been on my mind for the past week. It's made me think about how we should be guarding and protecting our hearts and our minds from the things and ideas of this world. Its made me think about how our hearts SHOULD be a garden wall.
Strong and beautiful. Full of purity and love.
Our hearts were made to serve one man during marriage. Which means our hearts should be whole and undamaged. It means that even when you are "seeing a guy" or you "like a guy" you keep your heart & mind & body from going places it shouldn't go.Treating the man as a brother. Not something that can be caught. A heart that is torn to pieces, and then gets married causes a lot of strife and grief. Save your heart for one man. Don't wear it on your sleeve and don't let others tear it down. Our hearts should be a garden wall. One that's strong and not easily damaged. one someone can admire for it's character; one that others can lean on when they are weak; one that most of all leans on Christ and His protection.
I know its easier to say this than to preform it, but I will pray for you. Christ is our strength. All we have to do is take hold of Him, and He will guide us.
