Words I Speak

When I open my mouth and speak,
can others tell it's you that I seek?
God, can they see you're number one
in my life and I believe in Jesus, your Son.

Do I hinder other people's walk
by thoughtless words as I talk?
Do I mutter about you and complain
or show I believe you can sustain?

Father, what do grumbling words convey,
but a lack of trust in your provision today?
Do I live my life trusting your power
to get me through each and every hour?

Let me never forget the amazing cost
of salvation or cause someone to be lost.
I want to live and point others to you,
give them hope and a heavenly view.

Phil 4:14-16a
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God, without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life.
