It’s been busy here. When I’m very busy, I’m usually feeling stressed or rushed. I’m learning (finally) how to slooooooow down, even when there’s a lot to do. Sometimes it’s mighty difficult to keep from shooting off at the mouth when I’m busy or when things are not going as quickly or as well as I’d like. So I’m reminded of a proverb I memorized years ago. It keeps me steady when I feel the temptation to grumble or complain or gripe.
In the multitude of words, sin is not lacking; but he who restrains his lips is wise. Proverbs 10:19
It’s a very good verse to memorize.
What verse have you memorized, that bubbles up from time to time when you need it?
