Buttering up the Tongue

Feathery, Flouncy, Flummery, Flamboyant, Fanatical Flattery!

A silver tongued devil, sweet talker, smooth talker, snow job, smoozing, shoveling it on, and laying it on thick.

I won’t tell you how impacting Deborah Smith Pegues “3o Days to Taming You Tongue”   is because, today,  I doubt you are going to believe me.

LYING~ Never & Always Not the Worst Thing EVER

 

 

“Teachers often teach that which they need to learn themselves.
I am no different.
I am writing this book first and foremost for myself.
I desire a wholesome tongue,
one that always learns to speak what is pleasing to God.

I have learned what James the brother of Jesus,
meant when he said
“No man can tame the tongue”

Thirty Days of Tongue Taming

I imagine God rubbing his hands with delight, grinning from ear to ear

I would imagine that these words from my mouth thrill Him more than almost any others.

I picture God sitting on the edge of His throne, eagerly waiting for that
“Green light”
that I give when I mutter …

Christmas Presence & Christmas Presents~ Let’s see you top this one Santa!

 

Being a single mom on a lower income, I had become accustom to receiving a Christmas grocery hamper every year to help us squeak thru December with all its extra festive frills.
 

 

But it had been growing strong in my heart that I needed to take a stand against that mediocrity monster and put my faith foot down in this area of my life.
 
So this Christmas, with a  big deep breath, I stomped.

Answered Prayer for You~ Isaiah 55:11

“So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the things where to I sent it.”
 
WOW !
Father, you said that not me! What an immensely bold promise! 

One, God, that you are more than able to keep. Because you have said it God, it has to be true.

Your word accomplishes things. It accomplishes wonderful things!! 

Things that please you

And Daddy God, we know that the things that please you are GOOD.
Father, today I commit to being your mouth piece. Set a gaurd over my mouth Lord, so that I would not sin against you. But strengthen me, quicken me, so that all I say blesses and brings life.
Let me speak only your words today. Your words which prosper and accomplish YOUR WILL
I pray, in Jesus beautiful name, the name above all names, for my bloggie brothers and sisters.
Lord, I speak the word over them today. Father that you direct them in all that they do and say.
That they commit their ways to you, and you will lead them.
For those that are struggling to find purpose and direction, Lord that you would overwhelm them with your goodness.
Father, that they would be filled with a hunger and a passion for your word.
Jesus, you said you are the living word, let the hunger and passion be for you, and you alone.
Father, assure them that as they open their mouths you will fill them.
Fill them with your word. Fill them with your very self.
In Jesus name,
Amen, so be it.

Answered Prayer for You~ Proverbs 18:21

“Death and life are in the power of the
tongue: and they that indulge in it shall eat the fruit
of it (life and death).”

(Amplified Bible)

Father, you have said it. The power of my tongue.
MY TONGUE!!! POWER!

Power for life or power for death. What an immensely sobering thought.

You have put all that I need right under my nose. Literally!

Father, saturate me with your Holy Spirit so that the words I speak are words of life.

I choose to speak life. I refuse to speak death. I absolutely refuse.

Help, me Father, set a seal over my mouth so I will not sin against you or anyone else.

Father, I pray for my bloggie brothers and sisters, help us to really grasp the fullness of our words. The eternal power of our mouth. Let us boldly call the things that be not as if they were. Father, we do promise to open our mouths and give you the glory and the honour.

Father, here on this blog we choose to only speak that which edifys and uplifts. We choose to keep our mouths shut and not enter into gossip, lies and unproductive speech. We choose.

Let us keep your word before us, so your word enters into our heart and grows. Lord you have taught us that the things that enter into our heart will come out our mouths.

So Lord right now, we choose to agressively put your word in our eyes, our ears and our mouths so it enters into our hearts.
Jesus you are the word. YOU ARE THE WORD. When we set you word to grow in our heart, YOU GROW IN OUR HEART!

WOW! What a thrill, we will grow and become more like you, Jesus our wonder master and Lord.

In Jesus Name
Amen~ so be it

 

 

Answered Prayer for You~ Matthew 6: 30-33

“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.
People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”

(the Message Bible)

Steeped in YOU!!! YES!!! YES!! YES!!! Your reality!
Your initiative! Your provisions!
Yes!!
Father today we choose to not be preoccupied with us so , instead, we can become preoccupied with you!
We believe with the very being of our fiber that you are a good daddy! 

You are a daddy that loves us, protects us and takes care of us.
We do, daddy, roll all our burdens to you!

You will take care of them all. You will perfect all that concerns us.
How much more will our Father in heaven take lavish us with good things.
Yes, we choose to stir up our faith, and our confidence in your love.
Let us open our heart to recieve the fullness of your love.
Then we will be so full and so secure that we can pour that love out on all those around us.
Then we will take care of the things that are close to your heart.
Your children, your kingdom and your destiny.
In Jesus beautiful name~ Amen… so be it
