Taming of The Tongue – Religious Musings

Jabez cried out to God and God granted his request.

It is said that ask and you shall receive. Sometimes the manner in which you ask the Lord determines the level of pain that you are feeling and will therefore influence the timeliness and the abundance which you may receive.

Are you heavy laden with pain? Cry out to the Lord, He will lift your burden
Do you feel trapped in recurring debts, illness, disappointments, grief? Cry out to the Lord, He will set you free!
Are you in doubt about your future, confused about today? Cry out to the Lord, He is the way.
Do you feel alone and haunted by your circumstances? Cry out to the Lord, He understands.

I am so filled with the love of the Lord, I decided to share how He has inspired my heart.


I have no one to turn to but the Lord
He is our saving grace especially in times of trouble and sadness
No matter how hard things may seem
He restores us to joy and gladness!

I am so not worthy for His many blessings
I receive them with humility and sometimes shame
As I know there is so much more that I can do
To glorify His name!

There is no greater love than the love of the Lord
Never compare the Lord to man
As humans there are so many things we don’t understand
Why try to figure it out?
Just trust the Lord and let him lead us by His right hand!

When man disappoints us
The Lord our God will never fail us
At times our mind does not look beyond our own experience
There is so much more beyond the naked eye
Jesus died for us to receive inconceivable blessings!.

Until we believe that our God is a miracle working God
Until we believe that God loves us
Until we believe that God is real
Until we believe that God is genuine
Until we believe that God is true
We will always live below our potential
Never see our life getting better

Take a leap of faith, yes!
Jump into the unknown
Trust God, He will never let you go!

Thank you my Lord and Saviour!

In times of trouble and fear, we should always remember that God is in the midst and He is fighting our battles. We just need to call on Him, depend on Him, Believe in Him, Uplift Him and He will uplift us!

“God is our refuge and stength, an ever-present help in trouble
Therfore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God
the holyplace where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are uproar, kingdoms fall;
He lifts His voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almight is with us
The God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see the works of the Lord,
the desolations He has brought on the earth
He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
He burns the shields with fire
Be still, and know that I am God,
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.

The Lord Almighty is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress.”
Psalms 46

The tongue can be such a dangerous weapon as it controls our actions and the reaction of others. It is the center of ;

Truth   vs. Lies
Peace vs. War
Love vs. Hate
Joy vs. Pain
the Wise  vs. the Unwise
Justice vs.  Injustice
Discipline vs. Disorder
Morality vs. Corruption
Trust vs. Mistrust
The list can go on and on…

What the tongue feeds into the minds of people at times control their actions. As long as we have a tongue we have a responsibility. Leaders, teachers, and other people in influential positions have the opportunity to reach the ears of a larger mass of people. However, we all have the choice to lead an exemplary life and to shape the minds and thoughts of people.

” When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although, they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.”  James 3:3-5.

“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatues of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue.” James 3: 7-8.

There has to be a conscious effort, discipline and willpower for man to allow God to tame the tongue, by listening, accepting, obeying and living the word of God.

“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. “

No one is perfect, “we all stumble in different in many ways. If one is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his body  in check.” James 3:2 . When we stumble and fall, we should pick ourselves up again. However, before moving on we should humble ourselves, seek forgiveness and reach out to other who fell along the way due to your error.

  • Do you choose to live a life with a split personality?
  • Do you choose a personality built on God’s foundation?
Allow God to tame your tongue, transform your mind and shape the world.
It’s better to live with a tamed tongue than lead with a tongue of shame!
