Guarding my heart is more than just asking God to help me clean it up. I have to be very careful about what goes INTO my heart through what I see and hear. It's that old "garbage in, garbage out" thing. What makes me think that I can fill my mind with the junk they show on tv and movies and keep my thoughts clean and pure? It's not possible. If it goes in...then it'll come out (or else stay in there and fester.)
Something a pastor once said many years ago has always stuck with me. "When you're bumped, whatever is in you spills." God help me to strive to keep only good and pleasing things in my heart so only that will "spill" when I'm "bumped."
