2 Timothy 1:7 ESV For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
You have control. Use your values to drive the change you need to alter your character. Make
a positive affirmation statement. Don’t try to avoid doing this or that. You undoubtedly end up doing what you are concentrating on, Therefore, think about what you do you want to do.
Instead of trying, not to “swear.” Be a person who “speaks with appropriate language.” Identify the characteristics that you want to live out and then act accordingly. Don’t beat yourself up if this doesn’t happen immediately. It will be especially hard if you have lived out differently than the character you want to demonstrate. Small incremental changes over time will take hold.
