A Poem

Founders Note: Today on the blog we have an original poem written by our monthly contributor Sandra Gilmore. To find out more about Sandra stop by the about page. 

Guard Your Heart 
Guard your heart above all else. (Proverbs 4:23) 
Employ His faithful ones: 
His Love and Trust and Joy and Peace 
From dawn ‘til setting sun. 

Through the day, they’ll do their part 
Steadfastly manning their posts; 
Protecting your thoughts and the words you say, 
Faithfully serving their hosts. 

With Love at its post, (I John 4:18) 
No fear can stay. 
For perfect love casts it out. 

With Trust at its post, (Proverbs 3:5) 
No worry can stay; 
No turmoil, no stress, no doubt. 

With Joy at its post, (Psalm 16:11) 
No sorrow can stay. 
His Presence fills joy to the brim. 

With Peace at its post, (Isaiah 26:3) 
Only peace can stay, 
For those whose minds are stayed on Him.
