I bite my tongue.
Willing the words to move backwards.
Striving to hold back an unkind statement,
Words that would not be graceful.
Full of grace.
I have to admit that often I fail to quench the desire to spew out graceless words. We all do… There are times that our words are not graceful.
We raise our voices in anger.
We speak out in frustration.
We open our mouths without thinking.
As Christian women we must strive to uplift others with our words. To exhort. Bless. Encourage. There should be life in our words.
“One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend.” –Proverbs 22:11
Our words should echo hope.
Let us strive to be women of grace in our speech. And let us begin with speaking gracefully to our families that often receive the most mistreatment when it come to our words. Will you join me in this?
When is the last time you spoke words of grace?
