“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”Psalm 19:14 ESV
So the first step in changing is recognizing and admitting you have a problem, right? Well, I have a problem. I’ve had it for a really long time. You know it because you know me. Thank you for choosing now to help me fix this thing. I am still terribly sarcastic and cynical and critical. I don’t want to be. I want to be generous — the opposite of these things. And I think a good place to begin is by changing the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart. First, would you help me to just be quiet, to keep my words to myself, to fix my filter? Would you help me to listen generously to others, to really hear their words? Because I know how much I value being heard. Let me do the same for others please. I sincerely believe this is a way to be generous. Thank you Father for your unfailing generosity to me. I love you jesus!
