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..
