ABC's of the Word...Mm

  • Father, even as I post this verse, my heart is heavily convicted with how much I need to put this command into practice. Please soften my heart, guard my mind and guide my tongue. Allow me the discernment to know what, when, and how much should come out of my mouth.

  1. Stacy,
    I have to tell you a story about this particular verse. I had a dear friend who had recently started coming to church with me. She was a wonderful mom, wife, friend but she did have a rather foul mouth. I never felt convicted to say anything to her because she wasn't a believer and I didn't want her to think I was judging her.

    One Sunday as we were in a ladies class the teacher handed out scriptures on scraps of paper for everyone to read in turn. She took two but the teacher said "only one" so she put one back. There were about 15 or 20 ladies in the class. As the lesson went on the teacher called on us to read our scriptures. Well don't you just know which one she got? No one there other than me knew about her cursing habit since it wasn't like she cursed there. I didn't even look at her but later that evening she called me up and said "How'd ya like the way God totally singled me out in sunday school today!!" We both agreed that God was trying to tell her something, it was good, it was Him and His timing. We both laughed. (She is a believer now and no longer curses like a sailor)

  2. I love your prayer...beautifully written following this powerful verse.

    Thank you.
