My Mouth

Since I was a little girl, my mouth was what I did best and what I did worst.  With it I could be cute and funny or hurting and biting.

Psalm 141:3 reminds me of that.  

Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
   keep watch over the door of my lips.

I need that reminder.  That I can use my mouth for good.  That I can love on people instead of spreading hate.  Its so easy to use our words for evil.  Lord, set a guard over my mouth.  Keep watch over the door of my lips.

And, once those words are out, we can't take them back . . .
Such wisdom for life the scriptures hold. May God oversee all that we think, say, and do.

Good to imagine that there is a door to our lips, so we can close it when we need to, with God's help.
