When it comes to relationships, guarding your heart isn’t enough.
Why? Regardless if you’re single, married, divorced, or separated — the heart is only one fourth of God’s greatest commandment.
Mark 12:30-31 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Isn’t it interesting that we as people emphasize the heart more than the soul, mind, and strength?
I wonder how it would feel it someone told me, “Don’t forget to guard your soul” or “Renee, guard your mind!” I’ve honestly never heard anyone tell me that before.
Maybe we think of these things, but don’t say them.
In a culture that is obsessed with following the heart, it’s no wonder why people experience heartbreak.
Heartache runs rampant and so does broken relationships. Thankfully, there is someone who stands waiting with a heart-shaped key — his name is Jesus. He is the author and perfecter of our faith — and this includes all our relationships.
When we choose to put God first, to seek Him first even above our own heart, soul, mind, and strength — we are blessed. Maybe don’t get that perfect relationship we think we want, but that’s because if we allow the Holy Spirit to come and live inside — our desires change.
That is when we have the relationships we need.
God knows our desires, our needs.

Relationships are very important to me.
God had me wait over 12 years to meet my husband. I kissed a lot of frogs, and did things I’m not proud of — and it wasn’t until I met Marc I realized just how unhealthy I was living. I can’t wait for you to read it and be encouraged.
