Healing words

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. ~ Proverbs 12:18 (NLT)

It takes strong winds to move a large sailing ship, but the captain uses only a small rudder to make it go in any direction. Our tongues are small too, and yet they brag about big things. ~ James 3:4-5 (CEV)

Our words are powerful and potentially dangerous.
Lord, you are totally wise and your words are always appropriate and timely. My words, on the other hand, are too many, too unfiltered, and too toxic. I am asking that the Holy Spirit would take control of my spoken and written words so that every single thing I say might bring healing. Amen.
