"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer."
Am I alone on this one?
Have you ever tried to track your words or thoughts throughout the day? Truth be told, we do not always fair well in these two areas. The reality is, as human beings, the words of our mouths and whatever we are musing in our hearts may not always be pleasing to God. Sometimes, we put our foot in our mouths. We have a sharp tongue. We speak out of turn. At other times, we are meditating on an offense. We are regretting a bad decision. Or, we are plotting revenge, because we are feeling vindictive.
What are we to do if our words and meditations are not pleasing to God? Pray. Ask for forgiveness. Ask for grace and wisdom. Ask for help with your words and thoughts. It is possible to speak and think in a way that is pleasing to God with the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit.
