The Shadowy Tongue

Have you ever said something, then look back on it, to realize how absolutely terrible it sounded, resist the urge to call up everyone who heard it and take it back? Ah, the tongue is such a stumbling block in my life!

It's often said to "be careful what you ask for, because God might give it to you." Too many times I have fallen into this narrow-minded boxed up image of God, and cower in fear for something absolutely stupid that I have said...or even thought! If God was that conniving, that unmerciful, then I certainly would be a miserable mess.
So today, I am going to give a shout out to my Grace-filled the all-knowing Father, whose foolishness is wiser than the wisest man, and whose plans could never be completely imagined by the most creative human being. How arrogant of me to think that anything I do outwardly could hide what's truly in my heart to the Lover of my Soul.

I am thankful that I follow a God who does not judge me based on my works, but on my heart alone!
