a treat …

Watch your words and hold your tongue;
    you’ll save yourself a lot of grief. – Proverbs 21:23   MSG

A response to the posting, “why does it always come back to my words?” was emailed to me day before yesterday from a long-time, but young friend, a recent blog reader. His pseudo name – “Magnus”.


“I realize that words are very powerful recently as well. There is a phrase that I picked up to describe discontent of outcome: “What a burn”

I was saying “what a burn” this and “burn that” and I kept burning myself. I burned my hand in-numerous times tending the fireplace, burned my lip and mustache on a cigarette, I burned my dinner enough to fill the house with smoke and stink for days, I even burned the carpet after some wood popped and shot out the fireplace into the living room. And as I look down at the burned carpet here come the words again and I realize “I have to stop saying that or I will burn the house down!” I stopped saying it and have been burn free ever since. I have also smoked less and been drinking more water. I just thought I would share that little story on my experience with the power of our words. Love you and thank you for your WORDS of WISDOM, I enjoy reading them.”

What more to say except, “Father, by Your  Spirit, help me guard my mouth and keep a watch over my lips. Thank You. I take it. I have it, and I WILL to forgive and love as You’ve forgiven and love me … so Mercifully. All in Jesus name.”

I really encourage everyone to get into the Bible and find out what it says about words and saying. A good start is Genesis 1, Deuteronomy 30, the Book of Proverbs, and the Words of Jesus in the Gospels … amazing how much He spoke about words … and I think He might now what He’s talkin’ about. Loving each one of you even if I don’t know you. You’re in my heart.

PSALMS 141:3   Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.   AMP
