{guard}

'Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.' ESV

'Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.' NKJV

'Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.' NIV ~Proverbs 4:23

Love this verse, especially the NIV.  Guard your heart.  That leaps out at me.  Perfectly tattoo-worthy.  Might have to keep that in mind.  A drawn-out script on my forearm.  A reminder.  Everything that knocks on the door of my heart doesn't have to be let in.  To be intentional about the direction my life goes, and to shoo away thoughts and information that doesn't give wings to my spirit.

Taking charge.  Taking authority.  Not being reactive, but being strong.

Strength is good.  Isn't it always?
