What’s Best, Praying First or Opening Mouth and Inserting Foot?

A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.  Proverbs, Chapter 18, verses 7-8.

You don’t know how many times I’ve opened my mouth before I prayed and asked God to guide my words and have lived to regret it. I could make a list a mile long, but that’s in the past and what I have is now.

Do I have to continue to say awkward and sometimes rude things to others, even though they weren’t my intention when I opened my mouth? This passage says no. I first tried it out with some job interviews. I prayed before I went in, asking for God to guide the things I said. Whether I got the job or not, when I came out from these interviews, I was so impressed with how God had the conversation flow smoothly. I was impressed with answers that God allowed me to give to questions I had never contemplated before. Most of all, I didn't feel so tense and awkward during the interview.

This worked so well each time I turned my interviews over to Christ’s very capable hands, that I started turning conversations with others over, as well. When I was going to interact with someone who tended to be negative, I would turn my conversation into God’s hands. When, I was angry or frustrated, I would turn my conversation over to God’s hands. When I was in a new or uncomfortable situation, I would turn my conversation over to God’s hands.

Not that I always remember to do it, but every time I take the time to turn my conversation over to God’s capable hands, I am less apt to say something I will regret later. A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.  Proverbs, Chapter 18, verses 7-8.

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
