Tounge and Attitude

This semester, my small group is starting something different. We are picking a new topic each week and reading 10 verses on it. What I have done is read one or two verses each night and then i pick them apart. Its been cool

Jan. 20 TOUNGE

James 1:26
If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his toungue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

if our tounge goes "crazy" our religion is worthless. Wow. That should scare us. It most defintly scares me!


Psalm 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 word and is very important here. It can become easy for the words of our mouth to be pleasing to the Lord, but the things in our hearts can be more challenging. People might not know what is going on in our hearts, but God sure does. BOTH of those things need to be pleasing to God

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowlege him, and he will make your plaths straight.

Definition of ALL: -the whole of -the greatest possible -nothing but
We need to trust the Lord with NOTHING BUT our hearts.

What do I have if I don't have you Jesus?

Here is another great song that the one and only Starfield sings. It has ment alot to me this past week.

Cry In My Heart
There's a cry in my heart
For Your glory to fall
For Your presence to fill up my senses
There's a yearning again
A thirst for discipline
A hunger for things that are deeper

Could You take me beyond?
Could You carry me through?
If I open my heart?
Could I go there with You?
(For I've been here before
But I know there's still more
Oh, Lord, I need to know You)

For what do I have
If I don't have You Jesus?
What in this life
Could mean any more?
You are my rock
You are my glory
You are the lifter
Of my head
Lifter of this head

This has been a very encouraging song to me. What do we have if we don't have Jesus? NOTHING. If only I could beleive that 100% every day.
