Proverbs 25:11 The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry.

We need to learn to think before we speak. Doesn’t sound hard bit isn’t always that easy in practice when we allow our emotions to lead our mouth.

I can remember a number of times during my recovery where I have let my emotions lead my mouth and from experience it’s disastrous. In the process of recovery, we need to learn to take emotional pauses. Times where we just STOP! and take stock of what is going on, how we feel about it and how we should react to it.

I have never had anyone complain to me for saying to them “Can I get back to you on that?”

 

Payer: Lord,  help me today not to let my emotions lead my mouth.
