Ephesians

For those who don't or can't understand why I wont speak ill of our adoption process, I thought I would explain. In the bible, Ephesians 4:29-30 is says:

Ephesians 4:29-30 (New International Version)


29: Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30: And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.


I feel that to have negative talk, could bring others down, or cause grief for the people of Haiti. I want others to be built up according to the Lord's will.

I pray that this post would speak to each and every reader that visits. Thank you to Nikki's father for his wisdom with this topic!

This is a scripture that is very hard for me.I will try along with you to live my life not saying things that will be hurtful. I just hope that the friends I surrond myself with will help me in my daily walk with the LORD.

Thanks goes to the Lord speaking to me through others comments. I knew that God was telling me to watch my tongue. It wasn't until I finally posted the previous blog, that I decided it was time to find out biblically why I felt the way I did.
