Be Mindful Of What You Speak
Sometimes it takes encouragement to speak what's in your heart. Sometimes one is quiet and holds what's in their heart forever. Psalms 39:1-3 gives the reader a snap shot of David's thoughts as he is thinking about his enemies, and how he must refrain from speaking his mind. He wants to tell them how he really feels. Verse one says:I will guard my ways,lest I sin with my tongue. I will restrain with a muzzle. While the wicked are before me. Verse two says: I was mute with silence. I held my peace even with the good. Verse three says: My heart was hot within me. While I was silent (musing)the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue. We want to trust our love ones but if their heart isn't in it the trust ceases.
