Guarding My Heart while Homeschooling!

In Scripture, the word “heart” refers to the inner core of a person. Our actions and our words pours from the depths of our hearts throughout our homeschool day.

Our heart controls our mood.

Our moods controls our actions.

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flows the springs of life.  Proverbs 4:23

In the Greek language the heart is defined as the inner man, mind, or will.

I start to stumble when I don’t guard my heart with His Word first thing each morning.

My tone gets short and before I know it, the tears are flowing from my dear child who can’t seem to understand his math problem.

The root of the issue begins in my heart. Luke clearly states, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

The reality of it all is…I don’t have the patience to do this homeschool thing in my own flesh.

I need to put on the Lord Jesus Christ daily.

And He never expected me to pull these tedious homeschool days alone.

That is why I need a Savior!

I encourage you to start your homeschool day off with Him each day.  Guard your heart from the evil one, my sweet sisters!

  1. Jill – yes! We have to guard our hearts! I enjoyed this post.

  2. I love the picture, nice objective on guarding our hearts!

  3. I completely agree! I have started reading my Bible every morning and things go so much smoother and I have a lot more understanding in situations that I might not normally have patience for. Being the mom of a 2.5 year old who is very active wears me out, but I can keep going when I have my focus in the right place. When I feel the stress building up, I go sit down and read a little more and have some quiet time with my son!

  4. This is so true. My 8 year old started crying today over math! How quickly things can fall apart if we don’t have the Holy Spirit as our teacher! I love your blog! It’s a great ministry!
