The Power Of The Tongue

Eric's sermon yesterday was quite challenging wasn't it? I found myself taking note of what came out of my mouth all day and found that I had so much less to say than usual... ha ha! My aim is to make sure I keep this guard on my tongue every day and practice the "zip it" principle if I have nothing good to say. So if you notice that I am not as chatty as usual then you can be sure I am working on taming my tongue :)

This is something especially relevant to us girls. Watch yourself this week and listen to what comes out of your mouth, you may be shocked. We spend so much time dressing up to be pretty, some of us won't dare leave home without our make-up on. But have you ever considered wearing a clean mouth as a part of our dressing up? Gossip for example is one of the ugliest things a girl can "wear". I have seen us girls absolutely rip another girl to shreds in a conversation and most of the time we do it just because we are insecure about
our self and make our self feel better at their expense."Death and life are in the power of the tongue" - Proverbs 18:21

We can do serious harm to someone just by what slides off of our tongue. That is so ugly and no amount of make-up or pretty clothes can cover the ugliness that we wear when we do this. I am sure we have all done this at some point in our life but let's really think about this when we get dressed to meet up with people this week. Make a decision to dress beautifully on the inside and out, when you put on your perfume or a pretty dress also put on a nice clean mouth that won't gossip or say mean things. If your chit chat is not going to build a person up rather chit chat about something else. Make sure the absent are always safe around you.

Just a thought, hope it helps us all be more beautiful and princess-like this week.



  1. I didn't hear Eric's sermon this week, but I am definitely going to watch what comes out of my mouth! :D

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
