Last week I finished the Soul Detox by She Reads Truth.
I really love the devotionals on The YouVersion app.
I was never a devotional kind of gal, but I just can't get enough.
This week I've really be learning about how much I complain to God about not getting enough or comparing myself to others.
I've joined A Royal Daughter and doing the #prayerdare
I wanted to share today's prayer because I feel it sums up how I feel.
Jesus, You said that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34). Please work within my heart so that my mouth speaks only pleasant words that are honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones (Proverbs 16:24). When I am tempted to gossip, remind me that my words might pierce another like a sword because of their recklessness (Proverbs 12:18). Give me a wise tongue for healing instead. #PrayerDare.
Proverbs 16:24 has been everywhere.
It's like a little birdie that keeps whispering these words to me.
I know I need to work on not comparing myself to others and know that no one is expecting perfection out of me.
I need to give this over to God because I hate holding on to things and I feel like I've written these words before.
How do you deal with having sweet words in moments of difficulty?
