Words spill out of my mouth thoughtlessly,

Unyielding my tongue pushes them into the world.

Where did those words come from?

My mind does not take the time to realize

The way they could be interpreted,

The way they could hurt,

The way they could humiliate, insult, berate.

I need to put a bridle on my words.

To rein in the emissions of my mouth.

I cannot do this alone.

I need help.

I need the only One who can give me forgiveness.

I call on the Almighty King of Creation.

He will look past my ugliness,

He will quiet my loss of control.

He will lead me in the path He has chosen for me.

Even when I choose to stray.

Even when I walk my own way.

Even when I forget about Him.

He is there.

He alone can control the words that I speak.

He will lead me to do what is right.

To chose my words carefully.

To ask forgiveness from any that I have hurt with the words I use..



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I do not have any tattoos. I do not believe in tattoos. But, if I did, your post title tattooed to my forehead would save so much time and back peddling words and apologies.

      I know. Sometimes I feel I should say I’m sorry for what I’ve said before I even open my mouth. What I write is even more difficult to retract.

  2. I said something to my dear husband the other day that I couldn’t believe was coming out of my mouth. Luckily, he is very hard of hearing.
