“For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one accord.” Zephaniah 3:9

Our true characters emerge on the road while driving. One afternoon, I was waiting for my turn to get on the highway during rush hour. When my lane light turned green, I gently stepped on the gas pedal to enter the highway, when suddenly the car on my right lane accelerated and cut in front of me. It was close and I lost it. I honked at the car and I almost would have said some not-so-nice words, only to remember that my daughters were sitting in the back.

Sebin asked why I sounded the horn, as it surprised both of the girls. I tried to explain what just happened but  I was mad at that moment so I couldn’t properly speak my words. I came back to my senses shortly after.

I am so glad I didn’t say those words out loud. Even though I was not at fault, I know I could have handled it better by not sounding the horn. I would like to pray that God will always restore a pure language (lips) to my mouth and that I will only use it to call on God and praise His name. And I want to become a good example to my family and those around me. I pray that God will restore to each one of our church family pure lips, that will glorify and honor His name.
