Taming my tongue.....

I follow Smoky Mountain Christian Village on Facebook and they post some of the neatest little "signs".
This is one I saw one day last week.....


Then, the very next morning, my Jesus Calling Devotional had this to say.....

"Pause before responding to people or situations, 
giving My Spirit space to act through you.
Hasty words and actions leave no room for Me;
this is atheistic living.
I want to inhabit all your moments ----
gracing your thoughts, words, and behavior."



But did I listen?
Uh....not very well.
I'm still a work in progress!!!

Psalm 141:3
Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;
    keep watch over the door of my lips.

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
