I like to tell my stories with the written word. Because you can always hit the backspace button if you think it will offend, and start all over again.
You can't take spoken words back.
But even someone like me has to get the words out now and then. You just need to vent, to tell someone what is building up in your soul.
How can I be sure the words I tell are good words? Words to uplift and edify?
If I have been putting in Words from the Giver of Life - words from His book - there won't be room for unkind words or thoughtless words. If I'm abiding in Him, spending time in His presence, what I tell will be straight from the heart of the Master.
I'm thinking of a line from a gospel song "Go and tell somebody what He's done for you." You can never go wrong with doing that!
