Me and my mistakes!

I am living proof, that even at 40, you can make mistakes with what you or type.

I am learning valuable life lessons, the hard way. It's just the craziest thing. 

My big heart gets confused sometimes. I trust too quickly and do not guard it like I should. I have insecurities, I will admit that. I want what everyone else wants... to be loved. However, I need to go about it the RIGHT way! 

Proverbs 4: 23 says, "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

How does one guard their heart? I'm glad you asked.

Philippians 4: 6-8 says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
This is something I am not good at. I jump into stuff and do things impulsively WITHOUT praying about it first! IF I was praying first, the peace of God would guard my heart and mind.
That is about to change. I am tired of junk in my life. I know there will always be something, but it doesn't mean I have to be the cause of it! I'm only hurting myself.
Please learn from my mistakes. Guard your heart. Pray about everything first! Let God lead and guide you instead of you doing what you want, like I have. 
Ouch! That hurts! I need to do better.
