Something I Have Been Having Trouble With....

Something that I have been struggling with lately is to hold my tongue and keep the anger I have inside. Sometimes things just get on my nerves and I get so irritated. I have to remember to keep my cool and ask for God to give me the strength to hold my tongue and keep a positive attitude.

Tumblr_m5o0q90jtb1rqfn0so1_500_largeNormally the things I say and the talking back is focused at my Mom. I love her and I appreciate her, but sometimes I just get annoyed and talk back or have a wrong tone of voice.

Proverbs 29:20, 22
There is more hope for a fool
    than for someone who speaks without thinking.
An angry person starts fights;
    a hot-tempered person commits all kinds of sin.

This verse really spoke to me and made me realize that when I speak out in anger I am being foolish and sinning. How easy it is to be angry and just spout out harsh words- I have to say it never felt good to say the wrong things I do. I always regret saying them once I did. It takes a wise person to hold their tongue and say kind things in return. And I have to say it will leave you feeling better about yourself as well and you truly will be in a better mood! 

So, the next time you catch yourself ready to get angry and say some harsh things in anger- think of the results and hold your tongue. Ask God to give you the right attitude and keep a good mindset!

Thanks for reading!! :)
