I hope you all have read part 1 and 2 of my Ex-Chronicles series. So far you’ve learned to take the time after your breakup to focus on the Lord and wait for Him to heal your wounds. He closed that door for a reason so don’t look back and dwell on what could have or should have happened. You were NOT supposed to marry that person or have their babies regardless of what you thought! Now that you are healing and have a sense of peace, you must learn how to guard your heart.
Why do you feel the need to entertain people?
STOP looking to people to fill voids in your life. Man will fail EVERY S I N G L E time but Jesus fills ALL voids. He will fill you up and have you overflowing with His love. There is absolutely no need to sit and text 3 different guys or go on lunch dates every other day just for a “free” meal. I purposely wrote free in quotes because I guarantee that the person you are entertaining for a “free” meal is also looking for you to entertain them in some type of way. So is this meal really “free” or is it a setup for lust, sex, and soul ties?
What does the Bible say?
Proverbs 4:23: “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Philippians 4:6-7: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Psalms 51:10: “Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.”
It is important to have a heart like Jesus and love like Him but it is also important to guard your heart from the things of this world. For when you guard your heart and focus on Him, it is easier to turn from your sinful ways. If you need help and you aren’t sure how to guard your heart or what you need guard from, pray and read the word. God still speaks, he’s just waiting for you to pour out to him.
Stop listening to love songs that have you reminiscing on your past relationship. Get over it and get excited about the person that God is molding you to be. You’re going to be an amazing spouse to an amazing person!
This season is IMPORTANT
It is imperative that we cling to the Lord during this transitional season. “Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.” –Proverbs 4:26-27
Get in position for what is ready to come. Set goals AND boundaries, write them out, remind yourself of them daily, and work towards them. For what is coming is far BETTER than what has left. Renew your mind and let the past go!
Stop allowing yourself to get hurt and guard your heart. You are way too precious to be treated like gum on the bottom of someone’s shoe. I love you but Jesus loves you like crazy.
