{ Wednesday's Words - Bite Your Tongue }

 bite one's tongue
  make a desperate effort to avoid saying something
(with an emphasis on "desperate" for me.....😉)

"Slow to Speak"

Being transparent again today!

I've heard those words so many times in the past few weeks and when that happens, 
I'm pretty sure God's trying to do a work in my heart.....
again!

I did a bit of research and found several Bible verses that were an "ouch"!

I've never been one to write on myself,
but whatever it takes to serve as a reminder.....

Deuteronomy 6:8
Tie them to your hands.....


(and my grand-kiddos find this so funny)



Psalm 141:3
Take control of what I say, O Lord,
    and guard my lips.

HOPE everybody has a Wonderful Wednesday!

  3. Good reminder, good words.
    Tie them to your hands... yes too manya times we have words without putting them into deeds! Our words need to come through in what we do and how we do it!
    Happy Wednesday.

  6. Wow! You said a "mouthfull" there! All good stuff. Thank you for this huge reminder. I need this every day. Sometimes my "fingers" do my talking here on Facebook, etc., and I need to be just as careful there as in using my voice.

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