A couple of "G" words!!!



I'm not sure if any of you will notice....but I feel God leading me to blog more personal thoughts....somewhat of a journal.  If any of you can draw something from my personal notes....then, that's great, too....
....God will be speaking to both of us!!!  


Gentle gossip....or, gossip gently!!!
Somehow those two words just don't jive, do they?!?!?

I got the word GOSSIP on my mind so I researched words to go with each letter....'cause you know me and my acrostics!!! 
You can click here for one I did on this topic last year. 

Here's what I came up with this time.....

G - Gentleness                      
O - Of                                        
S - Spirit
S - Smothered
I  - In
P - Prayer

I love how God lets me see things depending on what's going on in my life at the time.  The more research I did....the more I was lead to the word "gentle", which obviously didn't happen the last time!!!  If I have a gentle spirit....and if my life is "smothered in prayer"....then the desire to have anything to do with gossip should not be there....or at least I'll be convicted and HOPEfully stopped in my tracks if I should open my mouth and participate in the ugly of the two "g" words!!  Maybe God is preparing my heart and mind for something that is about to happen.  I do know that it's a "truth" that He led me to read about!!!

Ephesians 4:2
Always be humble and gentle.
Be patient with each other making allowance for each other's faults because of your love.  Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace!!!

Hope your Wednesday is blessed, 
Sweet Reader!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. Hi Deb...I just read something on gossip this morning that had me wondering about something...when we talk about someone because we are concerned about their behaviors, is that gossip? I am pondering that one lately.
    Thanks for coming by my blog. I did not realize you had those verses at the top of your blog...I knew I had read them here. They spoke so clearly to me on obedience.....and for you on truth!

  5. I love a more transparent writer and this post was wonderful! I know I can use a bigger dose of gentle when it comes to my spirit and love for others!

    I have been trying to write more transparently on my blog and don't quite know what direction it is taking but felt called to do it so we shall see!!!

    Happy New Year, may it be filled with Blessings and Joy!!!

  6. Beautiful post my dear! Gossip is so ugly, it stands to reason that if we love and have good thoughts there is no room for the ugly! Thanks!

  7. Hi Deb, so true, gossip is not nice, and at some time or other, we all fall under the spell of it. Then feel sick later.. I guess we need to realise how hurt we would feel it we heard all the gossip about ourselves. Love Crystal xx
