The silent tongue seems the most damaging to me. I have no statistics to prove it, but somehow this one seems to be so far-reaching. People don’t address wrong-doing (basically sin) in the home, at school, or at church. Our ignoring the wrongdoing does not make it disappear. It just … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 30
This is the day that discouragement gets addressed. Pegues comments that discouraging someone else is the evidence that you lack faith in God’s ability. I am guilty! I have learned though the more you rehearse God’s Word, your faith increases and you look less at the circumstance and more … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 26
Prior to accusing someone, Pegues encourages that you ask a clarifying question and listen to the person’s response before you make a statement! Wow! (Wish I had been practicing this. Most likely would have saved myself several embarrassing, “I’m sorry” moments!)
The self-absorbed tongue can be a trap for me, if I am not careful! I have much to say… and well if no one else wants to talk… here’s what I think. 🙂 One does tire of the person who has nothing else to talk about but him or herself. … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 21
The “belittling tongue” hit home the hardest! Belittling is defined as saying or thinking that someone or something is unimportant or not very good. 1 I would not eagerly admit to belittling people.

Today has been some day and it’s not even close to being done! I have had heard one bad tiding or encountered one difficult circumstance after another — from being challenged at work about my decision-making, to learning that a family member could be facing long-term financial challenges, to an acquaintance’s husband having … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — TESTED!
The Self-Deprecating Tongue — well, here I fall very short! Or, at least I need much work! I discovered within the last six months, that I am self-deprecating! That is, one who talks negatively about him or herself! I don’t do this out loud! But in my head, oh man! … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! –Day 8
I’ve learned over the years not to have an “argumentative” tongue! I do have much to say, but I don’t have to have a comeback all the time! There are times when you can hear a comment and you really can ignore it! The scripture that does help me keep it … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 6
I began thinking about a day, any day… A day is a unit of time that God and only God can make. God makes the day and then allows us to be in it. I’m sure you’re saying Debra, “Why should I be glad about today? I don’t have a … Continue Reading Be Glad In It!
The answer of wait from God can be so frustrating! Let’s face it! You pray… you want God to give you the green light! You might even fear that He’ll say no. But a wait, just makes you feel like you are in limbo! I can hear someone saying, “What … Continue Reading God Said, “Wait”.
We can celebrate as we know that God forgives us no matter how low we feel we have sunk into sin. He sees what you have done. Yet, He will forgive you. Say what you have done! He is unshockable! He can bear what you have to say. Honesty, humility, … Continue Reading No Fault, No Shame!
Hey: 6 months and more have passed since I first prayed a prayer. I prayed the same request to God day in and day out. I prayed about this matter sometimes several times a day. He didn’t do as I requested. He said no. He has said no to my … Continue Reading What Do You Do When God Says No!
