the heart

"Above all else guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life"

That has been something (guarding my heart) I have been working on for years and most especially in the last few months. THEN came this - -

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?

And here I stand. Clearly a man who looks for "heart"; searches for discernment, compassion, authenticity, passion and truth. 

And then again, realizes how deceitful  by nature the heart is!

Woe is me. 

Who amongst us can say that they are perfect and good among us?
Are we not all deceitful by nature hopefully working towards being good and doing what is right?  Who here can say they are not ever deceitful?

The reasons I believe that Jesus is the son of God are many; this is one, none of us are pure and good by nature, we must work towards being good. 
This is why God sent His son, to earth, to die for us, to give us that grace as we pursue goodness and righteousness for His glory. 

"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word."

Google "Grace" by u2 - - give a listen
God's word from- Proverbs 4 - Jeremiah 17 - Psalm 119

Love, wisdom and understanding,
