Hello old friend, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today I witnessed the power of words on the human heart.
Words are filled with special powers; the power to heal and to kill, the power to build and to destroy, the power to bring things to life and to cause things to die, the power to give hope and to produce despair, and the power to breathe love and to promote hate.
As a writer, I ❤ words! In fact, I live to share words with you everyday about my life and experiences. I love words, so much so, that I am intentional about how I use them. As a writer who knows the power of words, I have to be intentional with what I say. I cannot out of a fit of anger say something that I regret. My words can destroy someone’s life *dramatic voice*. Since I know this, I choose to think before I speak up. I choose to say things etched in life rather than speak sentences filled with death.
Proverbs 18:21 says “Life and death is in the power of our tongue and we will have the fruit thereof” (paraphrasing of course). As a community of people, especially believers, we have to watch what we say. Our words are like swords cutting into the hearts of individuals. So when you speak up, think about the soul you are going to speak to and choose your words wisely.
The enemy has a field day with us when we allow negative spoken words to trap us into depression and despair. We have to speak up! We have to use our words for good, we have to speak hope when there is none and life when life is nonexistent. We have to speak against negativity and speak positive things. Speak up!
Let us use our words wisely! Let us be the change we seek! Let us speak up against injustice! Let us be the voice for those without! SPEAK UP!!!!!
Until next time,
