“And you took the words right out of my mouth, it must have been while you were kissing me”…..lyrics from a Meatloaf hit from quite a while back. Only one line to echo in my head at strange times and I wondered about it.
Our mouth is where our speech comes from and is also our biggest challenge for choosing our destiny. Do we choose life or do we choose death? Lately, when I’ve given thought to say the wrong thing, I feel as though I am hushed and then reminded of what I know in my heart’s teachings to be the right response.
Whether I am silent or have something of kindness to share, it astounds me. I know there is nothing in me that can win such battles. Each time I can feel poison upon my lips….my Beloved kisses me, taking these words from me before I can ever release them.
Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eats its fruit.
Song Of Solomon 1:2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth-for your love is more delightful than wine
