I heard my brother moving around the house yesterday, very early in the morning.It was around 5am.Then suddenly he switched on the light in my room.It was very bright, I didn’t want to open my eyes so I told him to kindly switch off the light because I was still sleeping.He didn’t switch it off, so I had to rise up and go switch it off.He however put it on again.I got angry and told him to go to his room because I wanted to sleep.I rose up again and switched it off.I told him you are a “……………..”He just kept quiet.Immediately,I felt bad for calling him that.I stood for a moment, then I went to line up for water.Our neighbours were already out arranging empty jerrycans and waiting for the free city council water to come.After arranging my jerrycans I came back to wait inside the house.
I opened my Bible app,lo and behold, today’s verse of the day said,
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord , my strength, and my Redeemer.
I felt so guilty.
The words of my mouth were not acceptable to the Lord!!!
Immediately I started talking to my brother.I asked him why he was disturbing me while I slept.He said nothing.Then I told him,”now you see you caused me to talk badly to you?”He started laughing.
Then I made this prayer from the You version Bible app.
I am generally polite,I usually watch my words but today morning I realized that I let anger to take over me then my thoughts were not subject to Christ,2nd Corinthians 10:5
I also found this verse which just proved that my heart was evil.
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
I started thinking and reflecting,”does it mean I have been storing bad things in my heart?
