Day 4 - Thursday 14th March

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Proverbs 4:23

For what has been stored up in your hearts will be heard in the overflow of your words!

Matthew 12:34

What is in our hearts will eventually make its way into our words and actions.

As we seek to bring our hearts and lives before God and allow him to shape and direct us I pray that those words and actions would be good ones that bring life and blessing to those around us.  

So today might be a good moment to check your heart - is there good stored up in it ready to overflow to others or is there anger, frustration, bitterness, despair that at some point might overflow and cause harm or hurt to others?

 Ask God to speak to your heart today, to show you what is stored up in there and whether it needs to be changed or whether there needs to be an overflow of blessing to those around us from it.
