Words

Forgive me, Lord, for anything I’ve spoken other than blessings towards anyone, and put a guard on my mouth and mind.

Every day I hear and read so much that reminds me of the power of words.

A word spoken to or about someone who has wounded or offended, to a family member, even towards a precious child.

Let’s always be aware of the words we choose to use, the names we call others, particularly children.

On their worst days, children are a blessing from the Lord! On your worst day, you are a blessing! Your life is a blessing! You are a Difference Maker!

We must be aware of the power of the spoken word. We speak into existence either good or bad. 

We either bless or we curse with our words. Let’s choose to bless!

May you feel loved and blessed, and share that with others as you go about your day today!

    This is such an important & timely blog post. It is right in line with what we read in James 3:6, which states, “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity.” James 3:8 adds, “But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” The tongue, & the words which proceed from it, can start a war, end a life, or destroy a relationship. Mark Twain wrote, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” We need to rely on the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit so that we utter words of grace, and not disgrace.
