Caught In My Own Words

If you have been trapped by what you said,
    ensnared by the words of your mouth....
 free yourself,....
Go—to the point of exhaustion—
    and give your neighbor no rest!
Allow no sleep to your eyes,
    no slumber to your eyelids.
Free yourself, ...
    like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
Proverbs 6:2-5

Have you found yourself in this position...caught by what you said and you can't get yourself out.  Usually the best way is to work yourself out.  It takes time and energy to renew a relationship or to make good on a promise.  If you can't fulfill what you say, don't say it.  It's so disappointing when one doesn't do what they said they were going to do...and that's lying.
