You could say I have an eating disorder, speech-wise, I eat my words so often.
When we talk of “eating our words”, it’s an “oops!” statement. We regret something we’ve said, put our foot in our mouth, etc.
Well, instead of eating our words, why not gorge ourselves on God’s instead?
Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. ~ Jeremiah 15:16
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! [yea, sweeter] than honey to my mouth! ~~ Psalm 119:103
O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in him. ~~ Psalm 34:8
God’s words are perfect; no foot-in-the-mouth, wish-he-hadn’t-said-that statements.
Perfectly good words that he’ll never take back till they’ve accomplished all the good for which he sent them (Is 55:11)
And speaking of “all”, I’m about to serve you a plateful of “all” verses from the Bible.
They’re verses that remind us of all God’s done for us,
all He can do for and through us,
and all the reasons we should just love Him
No need to grab a fork or spoon, just dig in. These verses are all calorie-free comfort food from the “God of all comfort”! (2 Corinthians 1:3)…
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~~ Romans 15:13
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. ~~ 2 Corinthians 9:8
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. ~~ Ephesians 3:20-21
Whew! That was a mouthful. I encourage you to write them all down and look at them all the times you feel hopeless, joyless, or powerless.
Do you have other verses that encourage you? Share them with all of us!
