God is in charge, not you – get that right

#Journal thursday.

Watch your step when you enter God’s house. Enter to learn. That’s far better than mindlessly offering a sacrifice,Doing more harm than good.

Don’t shoot off your mouth, or speak before you think. Don’t be too quick to tell God what you think he wants to hear.God’s in charge, not you—the less you speak, the better.

Overwork makes for restless sleep. Overtalk shows you up as a fool.

 When you tell God you’ll do something, do it—now. God takes no pleasure in foolish gabble. Vow it, then do it.Far better not to vow in the first place than to vow and not pay up.

 

Don’t let your mouth make a total sinner of you.
When called to account, you won’t get by with
    “Sorry, I didn’t mean it.”
Why risk provoking God to angry retaliation?

 But against all illusion and fantasy and empty talk
There’s always this rock foundation: Fear God!
