  1. “When God corrects our hurtful words He wants to help us, not silence us.” Wow! Perfectly timed encouragement for me. Thank you for sharing! Blessings to you!

  2. Whitney, you never cease to amaze me with your wisdom! I know both sides of that hurt and I pray there will be a day for reconciliation for you two! Love you always

  3. Whitney,

    My biggest problem more often is the tone I use. Sure there are times I say the wrong things. Usually I use a bad tone of voice to say what I want. We all want to encourage each other. Often times Satan gets in the way & gives us the wrong words to use. Jesus gently & lovingly rebukes us-showing us our missteps. We may never get forgiveness from ones we hurt, but we will always get it from God.

    Blessings 🙂

    • Yes! Tone is a big one for me, too. My mom was right when she always told me, it’s not WHAT you say but HOW you say it! 🙂
