Complaining is kryptonite for the soul. Thinking upon and stating aloud God’s promises for our lives and all that we have to be grateful for, is medicine for weakened hearts and minds.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Oh boy, somedays it is so hard to bite my tongue! But so liberating all at the same time! No remorse comes when I learn the art of self-control and reply with a gentle tone and words. It has taken many moons to achieve nuances of this, and certainly still a work in progress. But asking the Holy Spirit to open and close my mouth for me at just the right times, has increased my success for freedom in this arena.🙏
“They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.” Revelation 19:11
