Take Care

Take care in what you say. 
Take care in what you hear,
Take care in what you see.
Take care in what you taste and eat. 
Take care with what you think.
Sticks and stone
May break my bones
But words will never harm me.
This poem is about your head protecting your heart, shielding your heart from stinging words that go deep.
The truth is your heart and mind are a balancing act. They work together to decipher facts.
God doesn’t measure you by what others say.
God doesn’t measure you by how you look.
God doesn’t measure your worth by success or failure.
God measures beauty by the kindness of your heart and the renewing of your mind.
Imagine if you were as tall as you were kind. You grew an inch for every ounce of kindness.
You would be mighty tall, and some would be very short.
Imagine you were as bright as your depth of knowing God’s Word. God’s word allows you to reason, question, seek and learn.
God measures a man by how he was made. You are wonderfully made, and God knows it very well.
You have gifts, talents, strengths, and struggles define who you are. God says not to covet what others have. It is because they are on a different road than you are and will need their God-given ability to meet the challenges they face. Everyone will make an account of how they used their talents to glorify God.
Take care with what you think. Lace it with God’s word.
Compare what you hear by the truth of God’s Word.
Avoid, run from evil sights and sounds that entice and trick you into false confidence.
Take care not to compare yourself with others today. Take time to praise God just for how you are today-
Take care to spend time with God today and know who you are. 
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14
