My words have gotten me into inner turmoil. Sometimes I feel that I shouldn't speak at all because most of what I say may mean nothing or that it may cause me whatever damage. Please pray for me because I'm in a state of vanity.

P.S. If I'm doing this just to get your attention, feel free to pray for me in your heart and not post. Then again, what I've just said may have been in vain as well.  Huh

Thanks.

Oftentimes, it's the only thing I can do when I feel like a transparent hypocrite and I know it.

May the Lord have mercy!

It's a thin line we walk....one often wonders if what they do is out of piousness or vanity.  Sometimes the line gets cloudy.

It's always best to bite one's tongue...unless you are certain your words will benefit the world.

:-)

Now, if only I could do the same.

Praying...

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
