Words of Life and Death

I have a really large head.  I mean in the physical sense.  And I have a really big mouth.  In the physical and evidently verbal sense.

Anyone share those characteristics with me?

Okay the head is a little annoying.  If I want to wear a ball cap I have to be sure and buy the kind that has the ability to be sized.  No elastic band will do.  Nope, it must be adjustable.

Now the big mouth is another thing.  The dentist and hygienist have no trouble fitting their entire hand into my mouth for cleaning or filling a cavity.  And most of the time my jaw isn’t even sore after the fact.  No struggle there.

And thankfully it is big enough that when I need to put both feet in it they fit just fine.

Just say’in.  Seems like I have done that of recent.

I have been reminded of late when Paul said …”why do I do the things I should not do and say the things I should not say?”  My version, Romans 7:19

My security in this comes in Christ.  I am surrendered to Him.

I make errors in judgement sometimes, but never with ill intent.  I would not intentionally spew out hateful words or be ugly or rude on purpose.  I certainly don’t wake up in the mornings, let my feet hit the floor and say, “hmmmm, who can I hurt today?”

I know that people who know me well know that is the case.  Even if it is unintentional and brought to my attention, an apology is offered.

Words have the ability to give life or give death.  In my weak flesh I sometimes want to choose death, but in my surrender to the Christ who lives in me I am given the ability to choose life.

Which do you choose?  And how do you choose it?

Now excuse me while I go look in my closet for a cap and a possible piece of masking tape for that mouth of mine!

Love “Ain’t” Always Easy!

Do we love ourselves?  That sounds so “self centered” doesn’t it?

But do we have confidence in who we are in Christ?  Do we believe that we are loved without condition?  Knowing how much we are loved allows us to love our neighbors and even those we might not think we could ever love!

I have indeed “been there, done that”.

I have to admit I don’t love someone in my own strength in order to surrender to His love…which allows me to love others.

Just being real today friends!
