Speak Less!

' Do not let your mouth cause you to sin, 
and do not tell the priest, “It was a mistake!” 
Why make God angry at you so 
that he would destroy the work of your hands?”'

Ecclesiastes 5:6

Let my cry come before You, O Lord
Give me understanding according to Your word
Let my supplication come before You 
Deliver me according to Your word 

My lips will utter praise 
My tongue shall speak Your words
Lord I am amazed by You
How You love me

There is always joy in the presence of the Lord 
So many things happens 
I look to the left and the right for answers 
But they are nowhere to be found
For the answers are right in front of me

My faith grows stronger by the day
Nothing I have done to merit this 
Yet it is challenging, for I look and forget 
It is wonderful to have and hold the sword 
That cuts through the flesh from the spirit

I have come to love the Book of Ecclesiastes
Not only are the words very true 
But they tend to stir my wheels in the direction 
I should be going, it makes smile 
It makes me think and meditate on the words 
But I tell you this, it is very relevant to now 

Yes, it is relevant
Let my words be few
Let me not make a vow that I cannot pay 
For the Lord my God takes no pleasure in fools

Why should my heart suffer
When my mouth speaks too quickly 
Without thinking, so let my words be few 
For the Lord my God is in Heaven and 
I am on earth and dreams don’t just come by speaking 
Let me not delay, but be obedience in the vow taken 

Vanity of vanity, everything is vanity 
I tell you this everything is meaningless and 
There is evil under the sun that I have seen
But it does not stop the sun from rising or setting 
The day will always come and nothing is new under the sun

Whatever you see is already happen, So
Do not be overly righteous, nor be overly wise 
Why should you destroy yourself?
Do not be overly wicked, nor be foolish 
Why should you die before your time?

Everything in this world is vanity 
But I tell, let us listen and obey the Lord 
Love one another

For death comes to all
Do not envy anyone, for though the sinner 
Does evil a hundred times and his days seem to prolonged 
Yet I surely know that it will be well 
With those that fear the Lord 
For salvation has restored our souls 
And given us eternal life

Let us conclude the matter and be done with it
It is good to speak 
But it is also good to be silent 
Fear God and keep His commandments
For this is man’s all
For God will bring every work into judgement 
Including every secret thing 
Weather good or evil

Have a wonderful day and blessed weekend
Be present in all things

"We cannot change what happens around us 
but we can change our responses." 

The flesh is weak, don't depend on it 🙂
