Queen in Gold
What does it mean to wear your heart on your sleeve? According to Google this entails exposing your true emotions. It’s letting other people see your heart, the real you; underneath all pretense. This takes serious vulnerability!
What I learnt about being real
Even before starting Queen in Gold there have been times I needed to be real about things I was struggling with or areas God has brought breakthrough in my life. The reason for this was twofold; firstly, to be truly authentic sometimes means to admit where you really are. Secondly, being authentic can encourage someone else in a similar situation.
Guard your heart
“Above all else, guard your heart,
So is this even Biblical? Proverbs 4:23 teaches us to guard our hearts, but not to hide it. When your heart is on guard it means that nothing can influence the state of its being, except the one to whom it belongs. It does not mean no one can see it or be inspired by it.
You can visit an art gallery to see a famous art work, you can stare at it and be inspired by it, but you can’t make changes to it, because it’s not yours and you will very likely be caught if you attempt it. You’re heart is like a piece of art. It shouldn’t be hidden – it should be on exhibit to inspire others. But just like a famous or expensive work of art, your heart should be guarded, in the safety of the King.
“Wear your heart on your sleeve.” I happen to believe that authenticity is one of the most important qualities a person can have.
