Faster Than Me

My tongue rushes ahead

Faster than me

But I must

Tame it!

A fictional Poem


The tongue can be difficult to tame but with desire and prayer we can tame it. We can tame our tongues by the power and grace of God. With God, all things are possible. God is waiting for us to ask Him to completely sanctify our tongues. Complete sanctification by the Spirit includes the sanctification of our tongues.

But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:8

No man can tame the tongue, but God can. We must offer and dedicate our tongues to God for proper washing and cleansing. God does not want our tongues and mouth to smell and emit offensive odors. God perceives the odors of gossiping, backbiting, unnecessary criticisms and cursing and they repel His life giving presence.

May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
