Those Loose Words
Watching our words….
Maybe it’s different for you, but sometimes the thoughts in my head that need to stay there slip out of my mouth as words and it’s never good.
I learned a long time ago that words that come from negative emotions become reactions instead of responses that can harm and hurt just like any other weapon.
Luckily for me… (MOST of the time)… I have learned to keep these words inside of my head and let the Holy Spirit hear them and help me to calm my emotions and allow my heart a chance to survey the situation and form a response instead of allowing the emotions of my initial reaction to come out as words.
Allowing God to help me filter my words has saved me from many situations that could have proven hurtful had they gone unchecked.
How do you filter your words?... Check your experience…
“Our behavior will convince them more than our words.” Big Book pg 83
Lord, let us share our thoughts with you first before we form words that come from our mouths, AMEN.
“In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.” James 3: 5-6
Have a blessed day Y’all!
