Thinking before Speaking


When I write, I have a chance to reread it and make any necessary corrections before I hit the enter key.  How I wish my brain had an enter key.

Two days down to my six day commitment.

For the rest of the week I will only speak words that are good for building others up, fit the occasion and give grace to those who hear.  I will speak no evil about anyone to anyone.

The first day went well.  But as I think back to yesterday, there was a situation I was dealing with and in the moment, my commitment never crossed my mind.

Receive with meekness the implanted Word

How do I get the Word of God implanted in me? How do I stop the out-flowing of my words?  I thought about writing the key words I wanted to remember on my fingers with a sharpie – which I still may end up doing. But, instead I jotted down the things I want to remember in my journal. I then followed these steps to make it my lock screen on my phone.  Hopefully every time I turn my phone on I’ll remember my goals.

Putting a photo on your lock/home screen (ios)

  • Take a picture
  • Use the EDIT button to make any changes, I used the crop button to remove the spiral bound wires
  • Click on the icon that looks like an arrow trying to escape from the top of a box
  • Select Use as Wallpaper
  • Move the picture until you are happy with the placement
  • Select Set Lock Screen for the screen you see when you turn your phone on
  • Select Set Home Screen for the background with your apps on top

Nice pic and post! I’m glad you gave an update. Of course the nosy in me wants to know the details on the slip-up…

Ugh – isn’t it always a variation of the same themes? This challenge has been good for me though – I was not aware of the negative chatter that rumbling around in my head. I now realize if I want nice stuff to come out of my mouth, I have to have nice stuff in m head.
