A Heart Divided

I have chosen the way 
of faithfulness;
 I have set my heart 
on your laws.
Psalm 119:30

It takes a conscious effort to "set my heart."  I have to wake up with God on my mind and His will in my heart.  Even at my ripe old age, I am still being teased by the evil one and my heart begins to divide.  The main part is still God's but the periphery becomes segmented.  
Usually I recognize that the struggle is evil and tell "it/him/her" to flee.  However, sometimes I'm grabbed and taken down for the count and turned into a monster (and I don't even like to wrestle.)  I don't like monsters and my family, friends and co-workers don't either.
As you see from the Psalmist, we have a choice.
