Word Filled Wednesday

Often I remind myself the importance of the words I say. Often I struggle to say the words that I should. Sometimes sharp, unkind words come out when I know that gentle and edifying words are what brings grace to those who hear. This verse - "I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth" is a great place to begin to get my heart and mouth in order. When we think how wonderful the Lord is and bless Him and praise Him, our hearts are filled with His goodness and that is what flows from our heart out of our mouths. We are blessed to be a blessing!

  5. It is amazing what an impact our words can have - to heal, help, bless or to hurt or destory.... What a responsibility we have to let Christ guard our lips!

  6. I am just now catching up on some blog hopping to see others posts. You have a great site and I love your picture. Great verse. Thanks for sharing.

    I am hosting "5 Things Friday" on my blog at http://jeanstockdale.typepad.com and I hope you will stop by and play along. I write to encourage MOMS in the fine art of Christian mothering. Such an awesome privilege, such a tough job! Blessings.
