She Opens Her Mouth With Wisdom

“She opens her mouth with wisdom and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:26

I love this verse. It’s such a great reminder to us that we need to think before we speak and watch what we say! The words we say and how we say them can have a lasting impact on those we love, for either good or bad.

Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.  Phil. 2:14-15

Harsh words, critical tone, impatience, sarcasm, gossip, complaining, grumbling, yelling… there are so many ways we can hurt others with our words.

The mouth of the righteous flows with wisdom ….. Prov. 10:32a

The proverbs women is our Godly example, she is wise and loving in the way that she speaks and thinks carefully before she offers someone advice, making sure that it is words of the Lord and not just her opinion. I believe she is also careful when she speaks and uses her wisdom to discern whether or not the person to whom she is speaking has an open mind and heart to receive.

On the lips of the discerning, wisdom is found….. Prov. 10:13a

What a woman says, reveals much about her character.  The Excellent Woman fears the Lord, is righteous, discerning, and humble.

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Eph. 4:29

“Please help me to put on Christ, dear Lord, in my day to day moments even when I think no one is watching. Help me not to fear but to smile at the future. Give me wisdom and discernment so that when I speak words they are shared with love, humility, and kindness. Help me Lord so that all that I say and do is glorifying to you.  Help us, Lord, to grow in the Grace and Knowledge of you.   Amen.”

My name is Cheryl Downum, Divorced in 2015, I moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting!
