One of my struggles at the workplace for me is impure talk whether perverse to even prejudices, so I have been praying to God for daily deliverance in this area. I have been praying to put a guard over my tongue, but what I love about this reading is the request put a guard over my heart. Thanks for this key, and yes Holy Father forgive me for my impure words please put a guard over my Heart so impure words will not be there to pour out instead Living Water! Amen

Thank you Father God for helping me to guard my heart, and helping me to fight the good fight. Thank you Daddy for Your faithful love and kindness toward me

DAY 217: Guard your heart

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.  Proverbs 4:23-24

Your life will play out based on the contents of your heart. 

Be careful that you don't harbor guilt, shame, anger, vengence, jealousy, lust, or any other form of man-made trainwrecks.  Those things will impact and shape your language. They will twist you up and make life harder than it has to be.

Every day, fill your heart with God's grace and allow it pour from your mouth. Keep your trajectory heading toward God.
