Shut up already

ok. I'm loud. I am especially a loud when I'm angry. I crab at everyone. Anyone who will listen, and those who don't.

And then via text message... this is what I get. 1 Thes 4:11-12

11 Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, 12so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Ok. God I hear You... put a check on it. In a really nice way God is like, stop being angry, you can't show those who don't know Me, Me via you. Shut up.

So, I today, I am going to count my blessings.

I'm going to shut up.

God gave me a reminder this morning too! I'm so glad that He does that. I sure wouldn't do it on my own!

We used to have a saying at work; 'God gave you two ears and one mouth so you would listen twice as much as you speak'. I think there's a lot of wisdom in them there words!
