“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Proverbs 4:23
The most intense battle looming in the universe seems to be the battle for the space of the human heart. Who will own it? What will fill it?
Of critical importance and mentioned over 600 times in scripture, the “heart” is referenced as a space that houses great power and influence and seems to be the most critical component in navigating our journey with Jesus.
Author and Pastor Tim Keller describes the heart as “those things on which we set our affections.”
Proverbs 27:19 says, “As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.”
Again and again Jesus connects the heart condition to outcomes.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
“If I cherished sin in my heart the Lord would not have a listened, but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer.” Psalm 66:18–19
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding: in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.” Matthew 6:21
“For out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Matthew 12:34B.
Ladies, theses scriptures are just the tip of the iceberg.
NOC wives, this basketball season there is a battle raging over space who’s outcome far outweighs the March Madness bracket space we all dream of finding ourselves in.
Today Jesus is asking us to consider our hearts.
He’s asking for access to our hearts.
He desires to occupy the entire space of our hearts.
Will you take time to notice?
You are seen, you are loved, you are treasured.

The foundation of NOC Wives is based on the verse from Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron, so one (WO)man sharpens another.” We believe in the power of sisterhood where women can come together in our commonality of being coaches’ wives and daughters of the King, sharing our joys, trials, challenges & triumphs. Encouraging one another, praying for one another, seeking truth from God’s word with one another and simply loving one another, as we all strive to live for the glory of God.
I would like to introduce our NOC Wives steering team to you….these amazing women, who are coaches’ wives, will be our content writers for this page! You will be blessed hearing from them each month…
