The Tongue

Proverbs 10:19 says Where words are many, sin is not absent; but he who is wise holds his tongue. This is a mistake that many people make. Often we have problem we need to solve and we run and tell everyone we see. We go to friends with "prayer requests" about others- in reality we are gossiping. When we are going through something in our lives that is too much for us to bear alone, we need to have a righteous friend or two to help steer us back on the road to God. That is appropriate and the way that the Church was meant to be.

So the tone of this blog will be changing. I will be using this as a way to share what God has done for me in my past. My goal is to turn the postings into a book eventually. I will be giving verses and expressing my memory of the past year in my life as a way to encourage others. I have had quite a year. God has truly blessed me through trial. I hope that in the months to come people are encouraged. This is something that God has called me to do. So to truly be Living Out Obedience I need to do this to honor God.
