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.🙏
