Lord, Help Me Bite My Tongue

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips (Psalm 141.3) Lord, I need you to do this for me right now! We claim we do things "out of the goodness of our hearts" but do we really? How many times have you done something and gotten angry because someone else took the credit for it? How long do we stay angry about it? Most importantly, how many times has that anger made us miss out on the blessing God had in store for us during that time? I have to admit that from time to time, it gets to me and it did tonight. But I'm not going to let it take control. I'm moving on. Oh, I'll keep doing what I do, but once I do it, it's done and I go to the next adventure God has for me!

I remember a song that Walter Hawkins used to sing called Whatever It is (It Won't Let Me Hold My Peace). The song says, "whatever it is, it makes me love my enemies."

So Lord, tonight keep the door of my lips and please set a watch before my mouth.

Be blessed and more importantly be a blessing. I'm out!


  1. Wow! This really hit home!! I had a close associate do this exact thing. Also, this person stole an idea that I discusssed. I decided not to be angry, but pray for this associate. I love that Walter Hawkins' song. Thanks for sharing Rosa.
