  • PSA 📢God convicted me this week about something that most of us are guilty for but don’t even realize we’re doing it. First I am calling myself out for all of these and I take responsibility for everything I’ve said that was unkind towards others based on appearance if you’ve heard me do this- I apologize for setting a poor example and contributing to toxic gossip. Unfortunately, I have also witnessed hearing the following from friends/family/acquaintances who mean well but it’s become so common that I must bring it to attention: Scrolling through social media we each have thought or spoken some form of the following: “she definitely used photoshop/facetune/she’s fake” “she doesn’t look good in that photo” “ew what is she wearing” “what’s wrong with her makeup” “she has plastic surgery/fake lips/ fake etc” “she’s too fat/too skinny/too pale” “she’s trying too hard” “she’s not pretty”. (Also use “he” in place of “she”, which happens less often but still happens) ⚠️THIS IS NOT OKAY! 🚫We have to start watching our thoughts because they become words. The influx of massive photo uploads, the thousands of images that we burn through in a few days, these thoughts are bound to enter. If we don’t start to nip it in the bud now, we are allowing ourselves to constantly judge others based on appearance creating a toxic ☣️ environment for our body and spirit. It is not our place to speak negatively of others, especially those we don’t know! Let’s choose kindness and the age old adage- if you don’t have anything kind to say, don’t say it at all. Let’s hold one another accountable. If you catch me doing this, say something! I will do the same for you. It’s time to speak up against this internal form of toxic cyber bullying & judgement. We can’t change overnight, but we can choose to be conscious of our thoughts/words. #speaklife #bridleyourtongue #choosekindness #raisethestandard

  • Today & always, let us ensure that our speech brings glory to God. Make a conscious decision & effort to stay away from gossip, unnecessary & unedifying talk, slander, and excessive sarcasm 🤭. Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to help us, He will!
Have a good day, everybody!

  • One of the hallmarks of a mature Christian is the ability to 'bridle your tongue' and be wise with whatever proceeds out of your mouth. (According to James chapter 1)

Many people confuse speaking the truth with being rude, insulting, dismissive and inconsiderate. This couldn't be further from the truth.

Making a controversial statement does not automatically mean that you are on the narrow path, nor does it imply that you are speaking according to the spirit of God.

It is the way of Christ to convict and redeem, not condemn and reject.

This new year, let us be conscious of what we say, how we say it and the effects our words will have on those who hear them.

An apology may be easy to render, but the damage done is not as easily remedied.

Let's learn, practice and grow in the Word together

  • Your Mouth - boy is there a world of fire in that thing. Either it’s full of the fire of the Word of God that loves, purifies, and empowers, or its full of the fire of hell that condemns, curses, and infuriates. So let me be Amanda here with you today...my mouth, though the very instrument and tool that the Lord has anointed to accomplish His plan through my life, has been, more often than not, the instrument of my greatest sin, failure, and defeat. Yikes! I will tell you the Holy Ghost has had a difficult job in teaching me to hold my tongue, but Praise Jesus, He has done a mighty, mighty work in my mouth!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 Oh yeah! There’s is much more to be done, but I choose to cooperate with Him to get ‘er done! Mind your mouth, and you will not only keep yourself from a lot of trouble, but you will create a world of favor, blessings, and holiness that surrounds your life with abundance!!!

“Can you bridle your tongue when your heart is under pressure? That’s how you show that you are wise. An understanding heart keeps you cool, calm, and collected, no matter what you’re facing. When even a fool bites his tongue he’s considered wise. So shut your mouth when you are provoked— it will make you look smart.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭17:27-28‬ ‭TPT‬‬

  • As Christians when we talk are people blessed or cursed?
Do our words hurt them or encourage them ?.. through us is their faith strengthened or weakened
Ephesians 4:29
" 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
Ephesians 5:4 also
"Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking,which are out of place,but rather Thanksgiving.
Don't say you're joking with insults such as you're mad, crazy,foolish e.t.c
For everything you do or say it is recorded in heaven...Be mindful of how you speak , don't break others with your words instead build them up.. sometimes we don't know what those around us are going  through that's why we must  be careful with our words ..If you sincerely have the Holy Spirit he'll make you know what's wrong and what's right
Don't use the same mouth you use to glorify God to curse 
God bless us and strengthen us
Can we just say this prayer;
Lord, bridle my tongue
When I speak let my words carry Holy fire
Help me to use my tongue to build others and not to break them
So help us God... Amen❣️

  • Friends should be like bra: close to your heart and all about support... However, if your friend is not supporting (patronizing) your business, be very sure that you know what they're going through before you start making accusing remarks like: "you don't want to buy bags from me abi?" I mean, you don't even know if s/he has bought anything fancy for herself in years! Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration but you know what I mean... Now, if this friend has confided in you that s/he is not patronizing your endeavor as s/he'd love to because s/he's not financially buoyant, it would be gross insensitivity on your part to constantly go on and on about how they're not buying from you and playing the shame game every chance you get as if you actually caught them buying the same thing from another seller... You probably do not see any big deal in this but it hurts in ways that you may never be able to fathom that a friend (relative even) who loves you very much and wishes you well cannot prove their support beyond "Nnaa jisi ike. Ya gazie..." If someone genuinely cares, it is shameful enough that they have to explain to you that the Broke Estate in which they are currently resident will not allow them be great... Then you go on and on about how they wouldn't patronize you and add salt to their injury... But who can measure the depth of a friend's love? It is mostly by little actions like pushing our hustle that they prove their love for us. Well understood... Granted, ngwere niile makpu amakpu, a maghị nke afọ na-asa. Which is why you must watch them carefully, guide your emotions very passionately against making hasty, uninformed assumptions, and learn to tame that tongue of yours that tend to spit worded swords at the innocent... You'll never know how deep the damage... Be properly guided!!! #guideyourheart

  • Can I surprise you? 
You can't even be perfect. 
The New Living Translation of James 3:2 says: “Indeed we all make may mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we could be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way"

But guess what? 
The reality is we can't bridle the tongues. We just can't. It's meant to be that way. 
That is why 1 John 1:10 says : “If we claim we have not sinned,we make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in our lives. "

God is not a liar. Is He? So why not try being real? And being real entells being sincere, genuine and not fake. Let your mistakes be mistakes. Let your actions be sincere. Don't fake it. Accept the mistakes and keep going while holding onto God. 
You see we can only try to attain perfection. We can't do that by ourselves. That's why Jesus came; to save us from the very thing we can't save ourselves from - sin. 
Reach out to Jesus today and live in His perfect love!

  • I know we have all heard the saying “Think before you speak” but can I tell you something? The Lord has taught me to bridle my tongue. Because if I would speak my THOUGHTS out loud they would be harsh and contaminate you. But God has taught me to PRAY before I speak so that He can water down my thoughts to speak life so when I pour words into you I pour living water not death. 
So are you speaking life or death?

  • Say Whaaat?

Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.” Considering the 'powerful force' of the words we utter, we must discipline ourselves to speak in a way that conveys respect, gentleness and humility.
“Me”-centredness is everyone’s default mode of operation
.
.
“Specific ways to esteem others better than yourself:
1	Don’t assume that others have exactly the same evil motives as you find in your own heart (love “believes all things’, 1 Corinthians 13:7), but rather put the best possible interpretation on their actions.
.
2	Look for those virtuous qualities in others that you know you are most in need of yourself. Then seek their help in acquiring those qualities.
.
3	Don’t assume that your time, money, energy, thoughts, and opinions are more valuable than your neighbour’s.
.
4	When making a decision, consider not only how that decision will affect your own interests, but also how it will affect the interests of others.
.
5	Be alert not only to your own needs, but also to the needs of others.
.
6	Demonstrate your high estimation of others by commending them for those qualities that are biblically worthy of praise.
.
7	Guard your heart from developing a patter of critical, condemnatory, accusatory, judgemental thoughts about others. (Such thoughts make it very difficult, if not impossible, to esteem others better than yourself).
.
8	Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
.
9	Remind yourself often that God has given to you everything you have to be proud of and that He has often used others to get you where you are. 
Thank God and thank those whom He has used to bless you.

  • The words of St. John of the Cross.
.
.
.
The tongue is extremely powerful. Let every word that our tongues form uplift and reassure and not depress and put down. Let us shun from speaking evil, causing havoc, chaos and unnecessary bad blood. Be ambassadors of peace, let our presence bring joy, laughter and gladness of heart. .
.
.
We join the Catholic community in welcoming everyone into the Lenten Season. May God renew in us the zeal to be steadfast and bless us with the grace to live a life worthy of emulation. God bless us all.

  • This week we are memorizing Ephesians 4:29, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up.” Fist bump if you’re committed to wholesome ❤️ talk TODAY! 👊🏽 It seemed appropriate to remind myself what WHOLESOME talk is…It can be easy when we are tired, rundown, sad, beat down, discouraged, defeated… To let our own filter down, but we have to keep a tight rein on our tongues! 👅 😛 #onedayatatime #bridleyourtongue #reinitin #accountability #unwholesometalk #uplift #ephesians429 #bekind #minimustardseeds

  • “If anyone thinks himself to be devout,” he may want to think again. Devotion is not something that God simply credits to our account just because we have reduced our walk with Him to manageable, repetitive religious habit. Rather, by nature, it is supposed to be dynamic, spontaneous & responsive in any given situation. Devotion is the intersection between our daily lives & the degree to which we welcome [YHWH] to rule it. It is an accurate reflection of how we are really relating to Yeshua—right now.
.
For example, when everything we have to say is negative & critical & prideful, or we speak out harshly in anger or frustration, or we simply run off at the mouth, saying whatever unfiltered thought that pops in our head, we are “not bridling [our] tongue, but rather deceiving [our] heart,” demonstrating without doubt how truly undevoted we are to God. On the contrary, this shows how dedicated we are to ourselves—our own mind & thoughts—& how devoid our spirit is of divine & Scriptural influence.
.
When [Yah] is not sufficiently invited into our normal, ordinary daily lives—& we are not sufficiently engaged with Him in it—no amount of compartmentalized prayer, Bible study, praise, worship, congregational attendance, tradition or ritual will amount to “devotion pure & undefiled” in the eyes of the Father. Instead, it is “vain,” empty, useless & worthless. It is devoid of anything that would connect us to God & the world around us in a significantly meaningful way.
.
Instead, “devotion pure & undefiled with the God & Father is this: to look after orphans & widows in their oppression, & to keep [one]self unspotted from the world.” .
...[A]n undefiled, pure devotion is set on pleasing God & meeting the needs of others. It is extroverted—it serves & runs after God with self-sacrificial motives, consciously aware of both the need to act outwardly on behalf of others, as well as the necessity to act inwardly in pursuit of purity & sinlessness.

  • Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me! If that ain't a lie from the pit of HELL! Lol! I can recall recently how someone said things to me that placed a strain on our relationship. I know I'm not the only one that's been hurt by words. There are so many of us hurting because of what someone has said to us! You never know the impact of your words, so think before you speak! what you say to someone may make or break them.  Don't allow anyone to talk to you any kind of way! I don't care who it is or what title they may hold! Let them know! #bridleyourtongue #wordshurt #theyliveforever #watchwhatyousay #speaklife
