Unkind Thoughts


Help me to stay clear of unkind thoughts toward others,

but instead work on my own faults and sins.

Let me not put others down, or make myself look better than I am,

but instead let my mouth be a wellspring of Your Truth.

Let my heart not be a pit of condemnation,

but instead let it reflect my gratefulness for Your grace.

Help me to stay close to Your Word and Truth,

and by being planted there, show others who You are.

You are the only good thing in my life.

How can I boast of anything else?

Psalm 1:3

He is like a tree

planted by streams of water

that yields its fruit in its season,

and its leaf does not wither.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
