Five Minute Friday: Keep

Five minute Friday is a group of people who blog for *only* five minutes with a one word prompt.  I love this- and am trying to make a more concerted effort to participate!

Without further ado....


The Bible counsels us in numerous places about keeping and protecting out hearts.  In today's age, I know this can be such a struggle.  How do you keep yourself from the world's invasion into your heart when we are to be in the world, but not of the world?

Stay diligent friend!  Your friends, loved ones, and children are looking at what is flowing from your spring!  Is it selfishness, love, hate, service, compassion, or disdain?  What goes in is what flows out... and it can be so hard to keep the positive flow, but it is so worth it!  It's not easy, but if you are fortunate enough you have people to come along side you and lift you when you cannot lift yourself.  Be strong- and of good courage.  It's all worth it in the end.  

Are you keeping your heart for the Lord... or is the world helping keep it busy?


  1. Wonderful post! Keeping (guarding) my heart is something I've been praying about. So thank you for such a wonderful, encouraging post! ^_^

  2. This post is very near to me. My 18 yr old granddaughter had a crushing disappointment a couple of weeks ago and I gave her this scripture to meditate on - she loved it. I just copied your graphic and emailed it to her so she could draw it on their kitchen chalkboard! Thank you! #fmf

  3. amazing, every time, how similar our thoughts are each week as so many write for five on friday. oh, how our Papa longs to have our full, undivided hearts, and how the magic of his math works when He multiplies what we give Him and pours it out on those around us in the form of Grace. thank you for sharing!
