The weight of the crap in my head

The crap in my head.
It doesn't come from God and yet I let it spew from my mouth like venom. I keep it in my head, I vent in my head and then it all comes bubbling out. Nine times out of ten the target is my husband. Oh poor husband.
That venom is so terrible, causes hurt. And makes me feel terrible to be able to speak such things.

"If you claim to be religious and don't control your tongue, you are just fooling yourself and your religion is worthless" James 1:26

"Be quick to listen, slow to speak and show to get angry. Your anger can never make things right in God's sight" James 1: 19-20

When Bathsheba was being verbally attacked she decided to keep her mouth shut because there was no point in pouring oil on fire.

But this is truth. I need to learn to control my tongue. I need to learn not only to speak my every thought but to take every thought captive!

Thankfully my weaknesses with my tongue do not destroy me. Thankfully I can find the strength to stop my tongue. Thankfully God's grace is sufficient in my weakness 
1 Corinthians 12:7-9 {Thank you for the reminder #shereadstruth devotional}
