Being a person that tends to be more on the reactionary side of things, i appreciate the content of this post. Over the last few years I have learned to be less reactionary and think about what I want/need to say before I open my mouth but God is still working on me.

Oh Lyssa, once again you have blessed me. I can be one to over-react at times and this really touched my heart. Thank you for letting God use you. Hugs!


Oh, Oh, you must take after your mother! :) I really like the "RULE of TEN" idea. I learned over the years to ask the LORD to open the door with a "golden opportunity" if HE wanted me to comment in a situation. I asked Him to make it so clear that I would know it would be wrong NOT to go ahead and obey. Many times that door never did open, OR the LORD took care of it without MY ever having to "DO" anything. THANK YOU for Song of My Heart's Devotionals. You always make my heart sing, Girl!

love the rule of ten ... i have a similar motto - never act (or react) in haste. Walk away from the situation and think and pray on it. If it's still on your heart then talk to a friend on what to do and go from there. Things can get so heated so quickly and its hard to take back words once theyve been said.
