Memory Verse

Ephesians 4:29, New International Version

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

When I'd be embarrassed to have my husband hear what I've said, it's a problem. I cringe at the realization that God has heard every word I've said, and even more, the thoughts that I've managed to not verbalize but still had.
