God is asking us today is your mouth a fountain or a cesspool

I guess both at different times. A few days back I was attempting something very difficult in a video game. There is a random element to whether you get the right prize or not and in video games I tend to see the outcome of the random bits as being directly determined by God. Randomness, luck, chance, fate, if I do use any of these words in thoughts or speech I see them as other words for God and I've told Him this, not saying they are other gods at all but that in the true sense of these words (which probably isn't how a lot of people use them) it's always being determined by God.

Anyway I promised God that if the 'random' outcome went my way I would thank Him out loud and also say 'thank God' when I was telling mum I finally did it. Saying in my head it's not really a prayer because I'm not going to pray over something silly like a game but still hoping. And I did finally win the prize, and I did thank God out loud, and I did thank Him again in front of mum. So maybe in that whole story there are aspects of words and thoughts being something like a fountain.

Other times I might make jokes with my stepdad that I wouldn't be too comfortable sharing here or I'll curse, not excessively but I know Scripture tells us it's to be avoided. So overall I'm somewhere in the middle.

I'm glad you were able to share that with your mom.

I took the fact that God asked the question as a reminder that I have some things to work on and that what I speak should minister life.
