Good morning ladies,
The word of the day is “blatherskite.” Have you ever been in a conversation with someone who just likes to talk? If the answer that question is negative, then maybe you are the person in that conversation. My mentor, Kevin, is a man of few words. He always has been and still is to this day. I remember having countless conversations with him when he didn't say more than three words. And, even if he would have wanted to, I did not ever let him get a word in edge wise. Now that I look back on those times with him, I realize that I was probably missing out on a ton of wisdom that I could have learned had I been not so worried about talking all of the nonsense that I did.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
My question is: what are the words that come out of your mouth? The stuff that you say is usually a direct representation of what's going on inside of you. Sooner or later, even if you try to fool people, your true self will come out through your words. What I realized is that for so much of my life I was a blatherskite, or someone that just spoke nonsense. It wasn't until Kevin taught me to think before I would speak did I begin to mature. That was some years ago, and I still feel like I am worlds away from where I would like to be. My prayer is that you carefully consider the meditations of your heart and give God an opening into your thoughts and actions.
Praying for you,
