A thought on James..

I just missed an October post by one day! dannnnngit!

Now, back to what I got on here to write in the first place.

I'm in a woman's bible study at the village and we're right smack dab in the middle of it, and for some reason (god and the holy spirit would probably be a good guess) this week's made my mind do some serious thinking.

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God, " Colossians 4:16.

Note. The study is on James 3:1-12. So, I'm a gossip, I'm a slanderer, I'm a liar, I'm an arguer, I'm sarcastic, I'm boastful and I flatter. Turns out all previously stated things are leading to my complete destruction and death. Which I knew, but praise God that he knows this about me and still decided to save me from myself. This week and for the rest of life here, I pray that god guards my heart against my own desires that I may develop a genuine faith where singing psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs and letting the word dwell in me richly becomes life.

I'm a piece of work, and have a long way to go.

  1. Amen sister!!

    Sometimes the easiest things for us to let come out of our mouth are the most harmful and disappointing to God. Why can't the easiest and quickest things be worshipful and encouraging!?
