Favorite Bible Verse

Cindy over at I Owe It All To Him is having a link party. 
 She asked each of us to post our favorite bible verse.
  How do you pick 1 verse?
 
There are many verses that have spoken to me,
 I'm not sure which spoke the loudest or rang the truest. 
 I believe the verse that comes to mind, most often is:

Psalm 19:14
"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.  KJV

How often do I say things or think things,
 that really are not in the best interest of anyone. 
 I can be quick to judge or make a decision,
 to speak out, when I know deep inside that,
 this is wrong. 
 Yes, I need to watch my words and think
 on the good in others. 
That is certainly the way
 I want others to see me.

Love to all,
Debbie

Beautiful picture accompanying your very insightful post, Debbie. We all need to be reminded, don't we, to watch our words. Thanks for the scriptures.

Debbie, I love it. that is a good 1 that I really need to keep close by too. I have to remember the one I typed on the computer and made a sign for in my muddroom too. Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praise-worthy, think of such things. Phil 4:8

What a perfect verse, Debbie. Thank you for sharing!

I also wanted you to know that I received your wonderful package of goodies today. I smiled the whole time. It was too dark to photograph by the time we got home from our Friday Night Date Night, so I'll photograph everything tomorrow and will post about it for Sunday. Thank you, my friend. (I LOVE your ATC, BTW!!!)

Love from your friend in FL,

Great verse!! Controlling our thought life is so important; and then too what is harder than controlling the tongue (as James would say!). The two really do go hand and hand. AND it is a beautiful prayer. Thanks for sharing this one.

This is a wonderful verse, and a good reminder for al of us, me most especially.

Have a fabulous weekend!
Hugs,
Anne

Boy, isn't that the truth. Even when we do not mean to be hurtful, it is easy to speak without thinking how it sounds, and other times we just open our mouths and say what we think and then wish we had not. Words are very hard to take back, and apologies are not always erasers. Thanks for your post.
