Guarding your heart and closing your heart are two different
things. Some people seem to think guarding your heart means
protecting yourself from getting hurt. Well the only way you
can protect yourserlf from getting hurt is a coffin. If you're
walking and breathing guess what? You will get hurt. If you are
in ministry guess what? You will get hurt. There is no way out
of it. Loving people will get you hurt. When we start guarding
our hurts we can run the risk of closing our hearts to the
people that matter the most.
The most valuable asset you have is your heart, it will bring life
to your marriage, your family and to the ministry. Your heart
when filled with God of potential and possibilities will produce
people with potential and possibilities. Closing it down for
business is bad for business.
Here are some signs of a closed heart.
1- They are distant and aloof. A wall is up, they have fenced
everyone out. Getting in will take time, and a whole lot of
mercy and patience.
2- There is no connections. No real connections to people.
They are alone and prefer to be alone. It’s safer.
3 – There is no real communications. After a while
communication skills shut down. You will find them without a
voice and struggling to find it.
4 – They start fending for themselves, becoming self sustaining
which reeks of pride. Unwilling to ask for help.
5 – They become critical. The focus quickly switches to what
is wrong instead of what is right.
6 – They become demanding, demanding obedience,
demanding submission, demanding perfection.
7 – Their oppression will be felt by everyone. People around
them will feel oppressed. A good way to describe oppression
is nothing getting in and nothing getting out.
