Be Careful What You Say

Awkward

2 Samuel 12:5-7
New Living Translation (NLT)

5 David was furious. “As surely as the Lord lives,” he vowed, “any man who would do such a thing deserves to die!

Awkward

Others have talents
Beauty and brains,
I’m kind of awkward
And that’s pretty plain,

Whether I’m eating
With manners so gross,
Or wearing an outfit
That’s boorish and gauche,

And that doesn’t mention
Just how clumsy I can be,
I can fall on my face,
I can surely guarantee,

But no matter how clumsy
How gross or unfit,
I have a secret
That makes me legit,

God up above
Sees me as unique,
And He runs and He holds me
Before I can speak,

“Don’t say a word!”
“Hush my sweet child”
That’s all He will say
With a hug and a smile.

Father,

How awkward it is to speak before You in our defense, for our lives are indefensible.
Therefore let us trust only in Your goodness, only in Your mercy. Thank You, Lord!
