Topic: Guard Your Heart (06/08/12)

TITLE: '' Peace The Right Tool''
By willie mikell


Just as we guard our physical heart aganist disease and stress, through exercise and dieting. The same goes for our spiritual hearts,the tools we use are a lot different.

Philippians 4v7 And the peace of GOD,which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and mind through Christ Jesus. A guarded heart is one of peace, all our cares, doubts and fears, we are to cast them on the one who can deal with them.
Through Jesus Christ the works of righteousness is peace, and the effects of that righteousness is quietness and assurance. A quiet assurance that we can rejoice about because Jesus has overcome the world.

In the world we will have tribulation ,but greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.No matter what we may face, the peace of GOD will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Def of guard: to provide or equip with some safeguard or protective appliance; as to prevent loss, injury etc...

1. When peace guards our hearts there is soundness of mind Matt 11v-29-31. 2. When peace guards our hearts, we can maxamize our potential Philippans 4V13. 3.When peace guards our hearts it produces the mjnd of Christ Philippians 2v5. 4. when peace guards our hearts it's because of the application of the word,James2v14-20.GOD has the answer to every issue of life, it's in his word. Never confusing because GOD is not the author of confusion, in everything he does is a plan and proccess, follow the plan and honor the proccess.

Great reminder of the peace we can have when we guard our hearts. Thanks.

You have the start of a fantastic idea here. I know it's not always easy to do but you need to expand on your points.

It's really difficult to tell which words are from the Bible and which ones are yours. Make sure you distinguish that because you wouldn't want to mislead someone unfamiliar with the Bible. You can put Bible quotes in italics or at the very least put quotes around them. Also don't abbreviate words like def because not everyone will realize it means definition. You also have some typos and incomplete sentences.

You have a lot of potential. If you were to join a critique group or find a challenge buddy this would really help polish up your writing and draw even more people in.

I have no doubt that God has some great plans for you. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and write what the Lord lays on your heart. You have some inspirational thoughts in there you just need to trust yourself and keep on pushing to become better and better. I think the idea of peace being a tool is quite creative and makes me look at those verses in a different way, which is always a good thing. Good job.

Good messages and profound truths from the word in your piece.

You could expound on it more...just go with your heart. Feel your heart, and feed those thoughts onto the screen. You have even greater purpose and potential to keep going forward.

Good job of catergorically bringing the "point" home.

Thank you. I look forward to reading your future entries.

God bless~
