Some days, life feels perfect.
Other days it just ain’t workin’.
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between.

Its crazy, amazing
We can turn a heart with the words we say…

Some days the tongue gets twisted;
Other days my thoughts just fall apart.
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t,
It’s like I’m drowning in the deep.

Well it crazy to imagine,
Words from our lips as the arms of compassion,
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die.

Beautiful Lyrics from Speak Life by Toby Mac
Songwriters : James L. Moore, Toby McKeehan, Ryan Dale Stevenson

I was thinking about the truth in this song. How many times this mouth/tongue says things without very much thought. How often as mom, friend, acquaintance, employee, supervisor I say things reactively instead of with wisdom???

May I endeavor more each day to seek God’s wisdom and to see with eyes of compassion those around me. God knows when they are going through things that aren’t evident. Oh to hold/control my words so that they could bring life/healing/caring instead of hurt/fuel to the fire or even at times be completely empty and useless. I certainly never mean for my words to be that way.

God grant me the ability to bridle my tongue and give me wisdom in my words and actions each day. Help me to be a reflection of you and your love/compassion to those who know me and those who don’t.
