Good Morning! Here I am. I know you missed me. I was pretty busy yesterday. So today, you will be blessed with two blogs because this one was supposed to be posted yesterday. Happy Tuesday to you all! I pray that you had a blessed weekend and have a wonderful week.
Proverbs 18:21 (NKJV)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Guard your tongue
By: Nicole Ellis
Just because God gave you a mouth
It doesn’t mean you should let everything come out
Your words can paint pictures of beauty
And heal the wounds of a broken heart
Your words can even tear down a person’s soul
You can cause them to fall before they even start
Start to pick up the pieces of where their lives began to fail
Your hateful words can encourage someone to heaven or condemn them to hell
Guard your tongue and make sure you speak with grace
The words you speak can change a human race
That little piece of your body can bring life or take it away
Guard your tongue and be more mindful of the things that you say
Just because God gave you a mind
Doesn’t mean you should speak what you are thinking all of the time
Be sensitive to the hearts of the people
Your words can build people up or make them feeble
Guard your tongue and speak with grace
Be the reason that someone has a smile on their face
Don’t tear people down just because you can
Demonstrate Christ’s love to others and speak peace across the land
Guard your tongue and speak hope to everyone you meet
Encourage someone with words to conquer any feat
Guard your tongue because someone is depending on you
To demonstrate how other Christians are to do
Trust in Christ to do the rest
Guard your tongue this tiny yet powerful tool
Speak blessings and not curses, live wise and not like a fool.
The tongue is so powerful and we have to be careful about what we say. The words we speak today can kill someone’s dream or bring new life to their hopes. Think before you speak and even before you speak think again. It’s not always worth saying how you feel. Pray to God to give you wisdom on when to speak and when to remain silent. Some battles you will never have to utter a word. Then there are others, where God will grant you such grace over your tongue that you will be able to speak blessings even over your enemies.
Have a blessed day guarding your tongue!
