It has been a consistent prayer of mine lately to ask the Lord to protect my heart – because I have no strength on my own.
This passage stuck out just now…
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
… May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.
1 Thess. 5:16-18, 23-24
