Psalm 141:3

3 Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.

This is a scripture verse I fall back on countless times, and in this season of life for me, it seems to be the most testing.

Although at times I seem to forget the exact words, I still constantly remind myself of the verse in general and the volumes it speaks to me about being conscious of the words I say. I try to remember how they might affect my neighbor, and I try to take a personal inventory of my words and thoughts regularly, especially now during Lent. I ask, are these words going to breathe life or death into someone’s heart? I ask, are my words a reflection of what God wants or what the enemy wants?

Words have the power to heal, uplift and move mountains.

But they also have the power to destroy, kill and steal.
