“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Proverbs 4:23 NIV
Some seasons are harder than others.
Sometimes it seems like having a hard heart is easier than feeling the pain of having a soft one.
But a heart is meant to feel, not be numb.
Your heart is made to process the pain.
When you harden your heart instead of processing the pain, you lock the pain inside with no way out.
My friend, don’t harden your heart.
Push through the hard season but don’t do it by hardening your heart.
Guard your heart, grow your heart and fill your heart.
Don’t just get through today’s struggle, process it.
Feel it, embrace it and let it work all the way through and all the way out.
I can attest to the truth of this. Unpacking trauma is hard work, but with the help of a therapist I am reaping the fruit of this labor.
