Instructed Tongue


"The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue,
to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed."
~ Isaiah 50:4 ~

That is a favorite passage of mine. It's still hanging on my fridge!

Soothing balm to my bitten tongue! I've had to guard my tongue over the last several days, trying to show love and compassion, trying to respond with care and not react with hurt.

Monica,

Thank you for posting this verse this morning. What an encouragement to me. I am heavy-hearted this morning for a friend who just lost her husband last night. I have been praying and searching for....words. I just read your post and this was a timely help to me. I need to go to God's Word to seek out how to encourage this dear friend.

I just read the KJV version of this verse and this really jumped out at me...

..."that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary"...

THANK you for posting this...exactly what I needed to read this morning!

Blessings to you and yours!
Katie
