Perhaps it's the result of a difficult move (difficult in the sense that it was hard to leave where we moved from - where we've moved to is great). Whatever the reason, I find myself driven more by duty than love lately. I find myself yearning to have my heart back. I don't want to lose heart.
It brings to mind a scene from Braveheart. The young prince, Robert the Bruce, has just returned from the battlefield, where he had betrayed the Scottish hero William Wallace, to report to his father (now near death due to his leprosy).
"Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." - Proverbs 4:23
How do I do that? What helps? Starting my morning out in God's Word. Worshiping him in private on my guitar. Lately, I've been going back and listening to some of the music I listened to when I first gave my life to Christ. For awhile, I've been sensing I need to start doing a monthly DAWG (Day Alone With God) day. Whatever it is, I better do it. I don't want to lose heart.
How about you? What helps you guard your heart?

Cheesy I know, but I hope it might inspire some to dig into the true Masterpiece. Thank you, Cory Vinz for all your work on this project. It was a joy working with you.

"And when I run, I feel his pleasure." Rick Warren would say Eric understood his S.H.A.P.E. (Spiritual Gifts - Heart - Abilities - Personality - Experiences). There are things I do that when I do them, I can feel His pleasure; reading to my kids, tucking them in at night, reading, studying, teaching, preaching, drumming, presenting Bible truths to the kids at church, etc. How about you? Are there certain things you do that when you do them, you can feel God's pleasure?
