Taming the Tongue!!!

So lately I've been having these
REALLY bad thought about certain people...

things like...

"She thinks she's all that?"

"She's stuck on herself?"

ETC...

and then it dawned on me...
that's the enemy

trying the

OLE
BATE
and
SWITCH!


Don't fall for it.
When we have thoughts that shouldn't pop in our heads...
just put them right out...
and think about
SOMETHING
good you know that person has in them.

I'm going to try that.
That way...
my thoughts don't become actions
and
my tongue doesn't get the best of me...

because you always THINK IT...
before YOU
SAY IT!

Blessings!

You sound like a very wise woman! Half the battle is catching the thoughts in the net before they take flight.

It's been a long time coming but I am (I hope)finally internalizing that JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO SAY IT. I am always telling J that; it's a hard lesson. Now I need to get past thinking it, too!

Amen! What I've noticed too is that certain "friends" can totally bring out that fleshly side of me!
