Proverbs 10 - 12; Romans 10

Summertime and the living is easy…..argggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh
Sorry had to get that out.
WEDDINGS……yes yes joyous occasions and yet this time of year inundated with the INVITES and between that and GRADUATION announcements…….arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Rant over…………….

Proverbs 12: 18 Reckless words pierce like a sword,

but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Romans 10: 8 But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. 11As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame." 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Hearing stay inthequiet quiet.....be still……of course my mind rants and my heart follows and my mouth ?? Reading Proverbs and all about words, mouth, tongue…….so knowing I am to not talk as much as I have, as I want to and yet... I don’t know how to keep silent, I talk a lot…going to just pray and listen today…….

My life is in your hands, God. Use me to point someone towards you today~I promise to cooperate in any way I can. If you want me to say a word for you today, I’ll do that. If you want me to keep quiet, but demonstrate love and servanthood, by YOUR spirit’s power I will. I’m fully available to YOU today, so guide me by Your spirit. (Bill Hybel’s prayer from Walk Across the Room)
