James 1:19-20 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
there is no statute of limitations on starting over. re-invent yourself every day. be the girl who walks barefoot and listens to the blues. tomorrow, wear a trench coat and speak fierce truths. be a phoenix. be ashes. burn down. resurrect. let go of the idea that you must always be who you have always been.
James 1:19 NLT, Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. James 4:11 NLT, Don't speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God's law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you.
