Before I open my mouth...

In the middle of my emotions I don't always react well in high elevated situations. Lately I have been struggling with a certain amount of irritability and anger when handling things. Today before I open my mouth I vow to....

pause... in the moment

examine... self

assess.... the situation

respond... with grace

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her togue.
Proverbs 31:26



Oh Lord, may every word I speak today be as if it were my last.



JOYfully in Him,

Brings to mind...

James 1:19-20

Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. (NLT)

Have a blessed day!
