Speak Your Truth Quietly

We should always consider our thoughts prior to expressing them. Angry words spoken in haste can be harmful, and cannot be taken back. Once we’ve said something to someone, it will forever remain in their mind no matter how often or sincerely we apologize.

I used to be really bad about raising my voice when I was angry. I still do it occasionally, but it’s one of those Cashmere ~ Quiet strengththings God is removing as I move closer to Him.

When anger comes—and it will—we need to learn to be still. A good saying to keep in the recesses of our mind is, “If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything.” It’s a practice that’s much easier said than done, but I believe we’ll find it leads to better results than the alternative of saying something we’ll regret.

Meekness is not weakness, it is quiet strength.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
