....what you say!!!
For the Father up above....is looking down with love....so be careful little mouth what you say!!!
I've learned....the hard way....that if you start a sentence with
"I know I shouldn't be saying this, but"....
.....then, you SHOULD NOT BE SAYING WHAT IS FIXING TO FLY OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!!!!
How do you know this?....you're probably wondering!
Well....just recently....I was talking to my friend....and those exact words came out of my mouth...then, I proceeded to say something that should have remained unsaid...and it wasn't five minutes...not barely five seconds....when God totally made a liar out of me!!!
My friend heard and witnessed it all....and she told me she laughed all the way out the door!!
Good thing she understands where I'm coming from....and knows a lot of my faults and shortcomings....and still loves me anyway!!
Kinda reminds me of God....who even though He loves His children....He still has to correct us.
And...correct me He did....IMMEDIATELY!!! No beating around the bush, or letting it go, or giving me time to think about it....He showed me IMMEDIATELY that what I had just said was wrong!!!
The Spirit of God is greatly grieved when the words of our mouths do not edify
or minister grace to those around us.
The words that came out of my mouth certainly were not to edify....or build up....or encourage....or to minister to those around us....not to my friend....or even to the one I was talking about (yes, I was gossiping).
Do you know how badly it grieves me....to know that I grieved God?
So....I was taught a very big lesson....all in the span of less than five minutes!!!
I'm understanding more and more....to take each and every thing that happens to me....as a life lesson....to HOPEFULLY learn and grow from!!!
And the next time...to keep my big mouth shut!!!
In His Most Precious Love...and with mine!!!
Learn to keep my mouth closed has been a hard lesson ~ thanks for the posting Deb ~ Have a marvelous day ~ big hugs to ya ~ReplyDelete
