How to Keep your Heart with Diligence Part 2
Show Notes

It is Mental Health Awareness Month and I'm excited to be talking about mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This episode is teaching how to keep your heart with diligence according to Proverbs 4:23. It is so important to always be careful and persistently working to keep or guard your heart for that's where the issues reside. It is our duty to deal with those issues. I also talk about the six different types of spiritual struggles according to Pargament and Exline (2023).  The reference to their article is below.

It is important to look into your environment (work, home, church, finances, community, relationships, etc.) and see if it is having an impact on your mental health in a good way or a bad way. It is also important to look within yourself to determine what you need to do to make sure you are in good standing mentally and emotionally. You don't have to suffer in silence. Help is available.
