The Bible says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.” God is warning us to protect our hearts and keep it healthy. So this month, with February being Heart Health month, I wanted to ask, “How do you keep your heart healthy?”
Here are 5 quick ways the God tells us to protect our hearts. Hope you will share others.
1. Be honest, speak uplifting words and be someone of Integrity.
Don’t only ensure you do these things, but keep people who don’t follow these life rules far from you. Stay away from drama and lips that cause and enjoy drama.
(Prov. 4:24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you.)
2. Live in the now, don’t look back in regret of the past.
You can’t change the past. All you can do is repent if applicable, take the learned lessons and move forward.
(Prov. 4:25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you.)
3. Renew Your Mind.
Stay connected to God– pray, talk to Him, read your Bible.
(Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.)
4. Love the Lord with Everything in You.
(Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.)
5. Speak God’s Affirming Words and Truth.
I do this by writing some affirmations that speak to my current life situations and start each day speaking those affirmations over my life.
(Psalms 19:14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.)
What do you do to keep your heart healthy?

I would add “Forgive Others” to the list for me. Hanging on to resentment, hurt, and anger is one way to bad heart health. Remembering that God won’t forgive us if we don’t forgive others is key. So if we want to make sure our hearts are right with the Lord we have to be forgiving.
I absolutely agree! It can be hard especially when forgiveness isn’t asked for by the other party but the damage it does to our heart (physically, emotionally, and spiritually) just isn’t worth it.
