Hello blog

Two scriptures have been resounding within me lately.  Proverbs 17:28…Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue and James 1:26…If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

My mouth has always been my downfall.  Things are going well, then I say something and BAM–there goes what I’ve worked so hard to build. 

I’m trying to work on bridling my tongue.  It’s not easy…especially for me.  I’m a talker.  I want the words that I speak, however, to bring life to situations rather than death. 

I don’t want to be soft.  I don’t want to be politically correct.  And for the love of God, I don’t want to be morally relative.  What seems right today may be proven horrible wrong tomorrow or next year or in the next decade. 

I choose to stand on something that has proven itself for several thousand years, not several thousand days.  I choose to stand with the One who sacrificed all so that we may have a relationship.  I choose to stand on a Solid Rock.  I choose to stand.
