Only What is Helpful for Building Others Up

I jumped down a lovely rabbit hole this morning after my Bible study. Normally this wouldn’t have happened this way, but God has a way of working things doesn’t He? I left my bible and my notebook at church on Sunday, so this morning I was using my tablet, after reading my verses in Revelation, I noticed the verse of the day (James 1:5-6, love it, and needed it today!) and then I went to Pinterest to find a cool art rendering of it, for my background picture…you see how this can quickly spiral into something else right? Anyway, to make a long story short-er, I came upon this blog (Smockity Frocks) in my black hole of Pinterest, which has a challenge attached to Ephesians 4:29.  The challenge is to only use language that is: helpful, needed, and beneficial for 30 days. I will be the first person to tell you, this is NOT my strong suit. I am more of an open-mouth-insert-foot kind of gal. So obviously this is something I need. I guess we will see how it goes, I will update weekly, and try and be as honest and candid as I can be. I would love to give the disclaimer that I have a sick 2 yr old, teething and cranky twin 9 month olds, and all kinds of crazy happening, but no where does God give me a pass to not follow His Word because life is crazy…Well, I hear two little boys, so I guess we start NOW!
