Words Come From Your Heart

by Hazel Straub

How often have words flowed out of our mouths, heedlessly, without conscious thought? We cannot take them back, although we might regret, what we said. However, our speech reveals our heart, whether faith-filled, full of trust, relying on God or filled with doubt, fear, unbelief, and bitterness, coming from unhealed hurts and soul wounds.

Choose to have another thought. Think about the goodness of God and meditate on his Word. He loves you, not based on your performance but on your true identity, a beloved child of God. He is your Redeemer, Healer and Protector God. Your heart will heal in his presence, as you think on his Words.

So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts,
and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing,
acceptable before your eyes,
my only Redeemer, my Protector-God. (Psalm 19:14 TPT)

  1. Thanks for the timely reminder of the way we should think. I read your post at the beginning of my day today and realized that Psalm 19:14 is a great way to start every day.

    Bless you.

  2. Yes, and it is sad to me how some choose to blame others for the feelings that emanate from their own hearts. Yes, sometimes people do or say things that offend us but not always, and the fact is we have drifted so far from turning to God, Who can help us, encourage and strengthen us.

  4. In the Recovery Rooms that I frequent we often encourage one another not to act/respond to our first thought, but rather to think through what we are going to say/do. I find this helpful every day, as I put my initial response aside and seek God’s leading instead.
    Blessings,

    • Pastor Chuck, that is excellent advice. However, we do not always think first, when we are wounded. Blessings, Hazel

  6. I believe words come from our hearts, however sometimes our words come from an emotional reaction trying to protect our hearts from whatever.

    • Our biblical heart is made up of the mind, will and emotions also called the soul.
