When I woke up this morning, I felt incredibly grouchy due to waking up numerous times in the middle of the night. When I went into work, I was worried that my irritability would lead to me losing my filter and swearing up a storm at the slightest provocation.

To my shock and humor, my daily Bible verse app provided me with the following devotional from Proverbs 12:18:

“There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

The message was loud and clear, and one of the few things that prevented me from letting myself vocalize the irritable thoughts I had throughout my shift. It was tempting, especially with two no call/no shows, and what felt at times like an endless line of customers.

God’s timing really is impeccable.
