As you have learned, the scriptures confirm that your tongue can be controlled. But you must take the initiative to control your own tongue. The following verses all indicate actions you must take:

Only let your conversation be as it becometh the Gospel of Christ... (Philippians 1:27)
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor...(Ephesians 4:22-25)
But now ye also put off...filthy communication out of your mouth. (Colossians 3:8) Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of
edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. (Ephesians 4:29) Let all...evil speaking be put away from you...(Ephesians 4:31)
..be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:15-16)
