Open Your Heart Not Your Mouth

Sometimes people know how to push our buttons, our reactions become weak with anger, then disappointment.  We then resent what came out of our mouth in defense for our self.  We immediately respond without thought, without consideration or without truly listening to what the other person is saying or trying to say.  Judgement comes into play.  Assumptions come into play.  Then we miss the joy and the connection between us.  God has the power to heal.  He has the power to heal our relationships and the power to heal what comes out of our mouth.  We are all guilty of this at any given time in our life.  We have insulted others as others insulted us.  We have judged others as others have judged us.  We have made assumptions of others as others may have assumed us.  But only God can truly decide who is innocent of these treacherous things we do or say to each other.  It takes practice over and over, experiences over and over to actually consume the power of God within our heart.  But when we do consume God’s love, His forgiveness and His trust in His guidance, the words that will come out of our mouth will be acceptable to Him.  If we truly listen and follow His word, then our hearts will be opened to listen to the true essence of what the other person is saying. Think about this, what did Jesus do when people said things about Him, accused, and condemned Him?  He trusted in God our Father’s guidance to say what needed to be said.  Psalm: 19:14 “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.”
