What the Bible Says about Talk

It’s not Easy to Control Your Talk 

We all make mistakes, but those who control their tongues can also control themselves in every other way. We can make a large horse turn around and go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds are strong. So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue  is a flame of fire. It is full of wickedness that can ruin your whole life. It can turn the entire course of your life into a blazing flame of destruction, for it is set on fire by hell itself.

People can tame all kinds of animals and birds and reptiles and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is an uncontrollable evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses against those who have made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right! Does a spring of water bubble out with both flesh water and bitter water?  Can you pick olives from a fig tree or figs from a grapevine? No, and you can’t draw fresh water from a salty pool.

But It’s Worth The Effort

12 Does anyone want to live a life that is long and prosperous? 13 Then keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies!
Psalm 34:12-13
New Living Translation (NLT)

It is foolish for us to lose our temper when we are insulted. We demonstrate maturity by staying self-controlled and expressing our anger without sinning.

What makes you brothers and sister loose control this days? Are your kids, family or co-workers pushing your buttons? Are you able to control yourself or do you often see yourself coming back  and apologizing to others?

Has this message touched you in any way? The love of our Heavenly Father could change hearts. The hearts controls your tongue so if you are one of those persons that can’t seem to control what comes out of your mouth then know that the Holy Spirit could change your entire self. Start the walk and make a change for youself and your family. Be the leader your family deserves. All you have to do is Surrender and make the decision to follow Christ and be ready to be use in a magnificent way to glorify the name of the Lord.


God Gives Life and a calling in everyone’s life.

Jeremiah’s Call

4 The Lord gave me this message:
5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

Jeremiah 1:4-5
New Living Translation (NLT)

One important message in this passage is that the creation of life is glorious and mysterious. Humans have been blessed as participants in God’s design for the furthering of the human race. We give physical birth to children-but God gives life.

This passage also informs us that God sets certain people apart for his work in the world. Jeremiah became a great prophet to the people of Israel. His work was not easy. People often didn’t want to hear his messages. But he persevered and obeyed God.

Each of us is also called by God for specific work here on earth. We may not be recipients of proclamations the way Jeremiah was, but we have other assignments to fullfill.

One of our greatest blessings is the ability to understand our callings. We can go to the Bible and read God’s words for us. We can ascertain our spiritual gifts. We can talk and pray with our spouses and bring the bending of two lives into the work that God has called us to do.

We know that some assignments are not grand or glorious. Some are difficult. Some are painstakingly slow in producing fruit. But when we endeavor to live out these callings, we find God’s blessings on all aspects of our lives.

God may not want us to be prophets like Jeremiah, but he does have a plan for us. it is our responsibility to cooperate with God now so that we can fulfill His plans for our lives. We need to seek out God’s will and then follow it. God will help and encourage us as we do it.

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20
New Living Translation (NLT)

The message of new life through faith in the crucified and resurrected Christ is to be offered to all the nations of the world. Those who by faith trust Christ for salvation are baptized to display their commitment. Continual instruction in the faith helps us grow and preserve our spiritual gains.

Jesus told His disciples to spread the gospel to all the world. So this is indeed something that we must do. How are you spreading the good news? What methods are you currently using to Evangelize to other brothers and sisters?

There are many blogs and websites that are dedicated to teach people how to use their social medias to better spread the good news to the lost. For an example Not Ashamed of the Gospel which wrote a blog post about this matter.

Has this message touched you in any way? Make the decision and follow Christ and be ready to be use in a magnificent way to glorify the name of the Lord.


Thankful for my 36 years

Thru all my life, God has been with me filling my life with blessings… I have nothing else than love for my Lord for as He has given me, He has also taken away! Bless it be the name of the Lord for what I have left.

O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.

Psalm 62:8 NLT

“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?

Luke 16:10-12 NLT

I was given a wonderful family and much love and I wasn’t thankful enough to take advantage of their love. Now things have change and I can’t change the past but for sure with God’s blessings I could make sure the future will go smoothly ones and for all.

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

Matthew 19:26 NLT

Thank you so much for the people that has stick around thru my transformation. I will make sure I love you all with all my heart. Here is something that I wanted to share during the times the Lord was working on me.

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, and at times, I am out of control and hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you for sure don’t deserve me at my best.”

At my best, it is. To God be the glory for as I know that everything I have went thru is for a reason and it has done nothing more than make me a better person and stronger in my faith. For that all I have to say now is….

But if you refuse to serve the Lord , then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord .”

Joshua 24:15 NLT

Thank you all for all the birthday wishes. I thank everyone of you that I have as friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and Youtube. You guys rock! Let’s keep spreading the good news and hope that Rapture happens soon! God bless you all in Jesus name I pray!
