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!
