Bible Verse Linkup

Alrighty, so I know I have not done a Bible Study in like forever so I thought I would do something kind of like a Bible Study for today. I've kind of lost my "knack" for making up a Bible Study, so I thought I would post on a Bible verse that has really been influential in my life for quite some time. And I thought I would have a link up so you all could post a verse that you might be influenced by lately in your own life. Hopefully next week I will have a Bible Study up for you all!!

Okay, so the verse that has been so convicting recently is
Psalms 19:14:
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

The words in this verse have really been impacting to me since I often do and think things that aren't probably pleasing to the Lord. Recently I have been having so much trouble with slandering others. Even though I only slander others in front of my close family- I still know that it truly is wrong and I sure wouldn't want those people I'm slandering to hear what I'm saying.

Everytime I hear this verse I get so convicted and realize that what I'm doing should be done to please God. And a lot of times I'm not pleasing Him with the words I say (and especially the words and thoughts I think). I continually need God's help with this area in my life and especially with the thoughts I think. Sometimes we may think that when we don't say something it is not a sin- but I truly think it is. Even though we don't say it we still think those negative thoughts and bring that into our minds. I truly need God's help in this area to allow me to not even get those thoughts into my head - let alone say them. 

Well, that is the verse that has been very applying to my life recently. I'm making this a link up so you can share your verse (or quote if you have one) in a post so that you can share too. You can also just leave a comment as well if you'd rather!! 

Thanks so much for dropping by and all your kind comments on my posts. You all truly do brighten up my day- far than you ever may know by the kind and considerate comments you leave!!
