Engaging with Your Heart - Ep. 14

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

In the 2nd episode of our self-care series we talk about how vital and transformative it is to engage with our own hearts. It is far easier to ignore what’s going on inside and give in to the hustle and bustle of life than it is to explore and give our hearts air time! However, when we ignore and suppress what’s happening internally, we cause dissonance in our own selves. Being honest and real and exploring what we are feeling is a vital part of living the wholehearted life that God intended for us. You matter enough to give weight to what’s happening inside of you. Be equipped to give value to your own process and engage with what’s happening in your heart! 

Verses referenced in today's episode: 
Proverbs 4:23 || Psalm 62:8
