Wednesday 13th April 2016. Guard your heart. Written By Manashantii. 


In the Bible, Proverbs 4v23 says Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.

Guard your heart whilst you talk about the painful past by praying preferably before and after Therapy or conversation. Talking about painful experiences can reignite the painful past. I am not saying don’t talk about your past at all. You need to acknowledge your feelings about the past before you can forgive. Once you have forgiven you must protect yourself from re-experiencing the trauma. Use prayer, confirm to God and yourself that you are no longer going to carry the pains of yesterdays and the past. It takes time to forgive yourself and to forgive your abuser. Forgiveness is very possible it just takes time be patient. To guard your heart is to set boundaries.
