Heart to Mouth

Matthew 15:11: "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."...
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

We cannot escape the simple truth that our words point to the our heart. The two cannot be separated. They are a reflection of each other. When my word are damaging to someone, I have to ask how my heart values that person.

We were to have died to sin but this is an area that I continue to resurrect over and over again. When instead I need to put it away once and for all!

Colossians 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him."

So my challenge for me (join if you want) is to change my heart about people. Increase their value to a higher level. After all: Jesus came and died for THEM! How dare me think anything less of anyone (including myself). Once the heart is changed, the mouth WILL follow.

Thats all for now, I love you guys and thanks for visiting.

Try this, I will too:

In every situation, ask yourself: How can I humble myself during this? Am I taking the highness place of honor with the risk of being asked to step down? Or am I taking the lowest place and leaving room to be asked to step up?

How are my feeling about the people involved? Am I treating the people around me like they are valued by our Lord? Because they are. My thoughts about others will manifest in the way I treat them and respond to them. If we look down on people, we are not being humble.

Take a knee!

Impressed By Them

I am so pleased to have so many amazing and different people in my life. I love it when someone can talk to me and not think I will judge them for their mistakes. They feel free to talk to me and I never want to change that.

We have such a hug verity of friends that we see all kinds of things from mistakes to bad habits to people who just do wrong things.

I ask that you all pray for me that I handle each and ever one of them well. That God will give me wisdom to hear their mistakes and NOT support them for doing them but encourage them to move away form them. For em to lead them out of that and into the light. To show them love and trust and even respect them at the same time.

I love it when people own up to their mistakes.
