What you say and do not say make a difference. Learn to tame your tongue.
Complaining is contagious and is hard to cure. Your mouth is a very powerful tool and also a weapon. Many find it easy to join in with others who are complaining, we must resist feeding into negativity it is an awful habit that should be replaced with gratitude. For instance when you get stuck in traffic instead of getting frustrated and start complaining enjoy this quiet time alone to talk to God. You could always avoid the traffic if you decide to get up earlier and leave before the traffic builds up. Complaining about the situation does not change it but it will change you ; your day will be off to a bad start you have allowed the situation to steal your joy. God works all things together for your good, according to his purpose for your life. Do not complain! The traffic jam just may have saved you from being in an accident. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to rend and a time to sew; a time to keep silent and a time to speak ;( Ecclesiastes 3:1,7). Murmuring and complaining open the door to destruction. Also do not retaliate our tongues are very good at this awful habit as well. Refuse to dignify another’s remarks with any retaliating comments! Words hurt and once they are released you can’t take them back! Do not retaliate insult for insult, instead ask God to bless them who attempt to hurt you with their comments. Being judgmental is another area most of us need work with as well. Judgmental people engage in a critical, faultfinding assessment of another person’s behavior. Have you ever noticed that we judge someone else by their actions but tend to judge ourselves by our intentions? Then our tongue gets busy again and we may belittle someone. How can we focus on the speck in our brother’s eye and ignore the plank in ours. Emotion and spiritual maturity dictate that you must seek first to understand rather than make an accusation. God will bring the truth to the light. I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue (Psalm 39:1)
The Power of Words (author unknown)
A Careless word may kindle strife,
A cruel word may wreck a life,
A bitter word may hate instill,
A brutal word may smite and kill.
A gracious word may smooth the way;
A joyous word may light the day.
A timely word may lesson stress;
A loving word may heal and bless.
Words carry power choose to use your wisely! Love Denise
Dear Lord, I am thanking you in advance for going before me in my thoughts, my words and my actions. Please continue to work on me, in me and through me for your glory. I know that I am a work in progress and I am heeding to your will. I pray these and all things in your son Jesus mighty name, Amen, Amen, amen

My sister you know you are speaking the truth.  An untamed tongue can destroy the soul of ones life.  We are so tested and tried, it is not an easy journey, but it is one we can endure, through the word of God and not our own words.  Thank you for sharing such a powerful message.  It's a Blessings to Live by the word of God.  God's Love and Strength to us all.....amen
