Muzzle on my mouth?

I am up early and just read a post on Exemplify Online asking if you talk too much. Then I went to the daily chronological Bible reading and below is the first thing I read:
I said, "I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
as long as the wicked are in my presence."

Lord—you trying to tell me something??

Chronological Bible Reading for May 11 ( I know..I have been really slack in this!!)

PSALM 39-41
PSALM 53
PSALM 55
PSALM 58

Psalm 40 is on of my favorite psalms. I almost always share this one when I share my testimony. I am so thankful that God lifted me out of a miry stinky pit and set my feet on a rock. (The Rock!) Thank you Lord!

1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD.

Do you have a psalm that’s your favorite? One that just speaks to your heart? I’d love to hear!

  2. Well actually, I basically NEVER memorize Bible verses intentionally, but Psalm 40 is the passage I worked on sometime in the past two years...the vivid language really helps it sink in.
