Today we are reading chapters 16 – 20.

I have decided that I would take 20-30 minutes out of each of my morning to dedicate to reading through the book of Psalms. I think that there is something so relaxing when putting pen to paper and writing my thoughts through this study out. So that is what I am doing. I will be starting everyday with a prayer; thanking God for the blessings that he has given me and putting my prayer request in as well. I will then proceed with my reading followed by 3-5 minutes where I mediate on His word; opening my mind and heart to the message that God wants me to receive. I then end with prayer.

SCRIPTURE: Psalms 19:14

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my redeemer.


During this study of Psalms I have been meditating on His words, something I have never done before. This scripture showed me that I must also change the way that I speak; that my words can be just as unacceptable as my actions.


Last night I slipped. My husband and I were on the telephone and an argument began to pursue. Before I knew it I had quickly allowed my tongue to get carried away. Once I caught myself I was immediately upset and ashamed with the words that I had spoke out of anger without even thinking.

My tongue has ALWAYS been my worse enemy.

What I said, and how I reacted, to my husband was not acceptable. I know that what I said would not have been acceptable to God. That quickly I had allowed my temper to take over me. I prayed and asked God for forgiveness and then I apologized to my husband. I need to learn to take a time out; to remove myself from the situation and calm down before I speak.


Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to you today to ask You to help me change my flaws. I ask You to continue to mold me into the woman and mother that You want me to be. My tongue is my worse enemy Lord and I ask that You change my ways. I ask that You be patient with me as I break the cycle of reacting first and then thinking later.

In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
