Behold the Ships

In one of my favorite songs the lyrics state: "May the words I say and the things I do make my lifesong sing–bring a smile to You."  (Lifesong by Casting Crowns, 2005)  What do my words bring? I am sometimes surprised by my own critical tongue or the lack of patience I display. I do want my words to bring a smile to God. I want Him to be pleased. What I say can be helpful or hurtful.  The "rudder" of speech can take my ship to places of edification, comfort and love; it can just as easily cause discouragement, bitterness and doubt. I hope for wisdom to know the difference.

    Yes, I say so many hurtful and short things out of frustration and impatience with my family, friends, co-workers, others. I so need to be quiet and practice listening, just listen to others needs. Thanks,… smile.
