Burst of Flare


Psalm 141: 3 says, Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

When it comes to cooking there is one element that can take any food to the next level and that is spices. There are so many different types of spices that we use to make our food taste great. What are your favorite spices that you use when you cook? I like to use sage with garlic, paprika, parsley with my chicken. And for my Salmon I use sea salt, fresh lemon, and black pepper.

Colors and smell get our attention. Studies have shown that the more colorful a person’s plate is they are more likely to eat it. Because it attracts our senses within the brain. Depending on a person palate they can eat very spicy foods. I for one can no longer eat food that brings a lot of heat.

But what about the spices that comes out of our mouths? Now they are spicy, aren’t they? We speak cruel and severe words that can destroy a person hope. We say things that are discouraging, we belittled a person, we are argumentative, we say hateful words, we manipulate people with our words.

If we are not saying it, we are thinking it, this behavior will only produce destruction in our hearts. In Proverbs 13:3 it says, whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. We are to think before we speak if not, we are ruined by an ungoverned tongue.

For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” If you want to know what is on the inside of a person, you simply watch his or her actions; listen to what comes out of their mouth on a regular basis. This is not being judgmental; this is being realistic.

Now if a person is consistently kind, encouraging, and polite, then you can be sure that is what they are like “on the inside.”

Now I know what you might be saying, suppose they are pretending. Always remember this, eventually what is on the inside of a person will come out. For the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the overflow of the heart.

  1. True words! Great post!

  2. Amen, Desiray. So true. you can definitely tell what a person is like by observing what comes out of their mouth on a consistent basis. One thing that I noticed too, is when someone’s words are hurtful, or teasing then they say “just kidding”. I believe there’s always some truth to just kidding. they weren’t kidding when they disrespectfully said (?) to me. Thank you so much for sharing..Blessings.

    Paula, I agree with you on that kidding part. I never like kidding because I believe that when a person is kidding that they are speaking truth that they feel about that person.

    My parents taught me and my siblings never to kid because it will cause damage.

    have a bless day today.
