Psalm Saturday.

Wow this is my 100th post! I must talk too much! Today is Psalm Saturday, when I share what I have been reading from the Psalms. Feel free to join in! My friend Deb at One Single Minute has written a wonderful post on one of the Psalms today. Please take a look!

3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Psalm 141:3 NIV.

I often wish God would do this! That he would make me bite my tongue or put up a guard to stop my lips from uttering pointless, hurtful words. This week I haven't been the most pleasant wife to be around. Poor Colin has suffered! I have been impatient, snappish and just not the nicest of people to be around.

It seems like no matter how hard I try I just cannot hold my tongue. It feels terrible to be so out of control in this area. Thankfully I have a loving husband of 7 years (on Monday!!!) who knows me warts and all and loves me regardless. I honestly don't know how he puts up with me sometimes!

So today may it be my prayer that God guards my big mouth and I truly think before I speak!


  1. Congratulations on your 100th post ... mine is Monday (don't forget to link your post on joy!!). I so enjoy your Psalm Saturday posts ... a beautiful way to start my Saturday mornings. :-) Hugs to you, my sweet friend!!

  2. Collette - this has been my problem for years! Letting my mouth speak before I engage my heart and brain!

    I pray this often as well as Psalm 17:3b "I have resolved that my mouth will not sin"

    Blessings to you today!

  3. I know!! I can relate to that too! It reminds me of the verses in James 3:6-12!!

    Have a wonderful day, Colleen.

    And I know I've told you this before, but the majority of the things you post remind me so much of myself.

  4. Congrats on the 100th post!!! It would serve me well to put your Psalm for today into biggest battle is engaging my mouth before my brain has had time to process anything!!

  5. Collette,
    Congratulations on your 100th post and on your anniversary! My 100th post was last Monday.

    As I have been reading through the Psalms this morning, working on my post for today, I did meditate on the verse you posted and think the same things that you wrote. I am praying for you.
    Thank you for your blog and for Psalm Satruday!

  6. Amen, I couldn't agree more.

    Happy Anniversary.

  7. I bet we could all take a little something home from this one! Thanks for the heavenly reminder to watch my tongue!!!! Pray for me now:)


It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
