A sound heart - a heart with peace, keeps the body healthy. The body 's health, depends on the condition of yo heart. people are sick coz. hearts are sick. How can u be at peace. u can only be at peace in yo heart when you are at peace with God. Knowing u are forgiven , making His word yo absolute. then u won 't be troubled by anything.

A heart that is kept clean makes your life meaningful but an impure thought hurts your very bones.

This verse means so much to me.. it seems as if I've been trying to put the words together forever bc this is how I feel if only I came to learn the bible a long time ago I would have been seeked these eloquent words. This verse it's my new way of meditation when I get upset with someone.
