What You Say Can Determine Your Day!

Standard

Proverbs 18:21

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (NKJV)

When I was holding my daughter yesterday I said to her “I love you” and she looked and me and said “lud you”. Then she hugged me! It just melted my heart. One thing is for sure — I want to speak “life” words into my daughter’s life.

I also want to speak life words into my own life and into the lives of those around me. Our words have power and they can have a tremendous affect!

Have you ever said “This is going to be a bad day”? I know when I have said that, it ended up being a bad day!

When God created the world He spoke things into being.  I believe that we frame our world with our words. Please understand, I’m not saying we are God. We all know THAT would be a scary sight (scarier than seeing my mother-in-law in her moo moo…sorry Mama B…I know, I’m supposed to be speaking life words but this comment is in parenthesis, so it means I just thought it, I didn’t say it)! 🙂

My “dad” (Pastor Jim Frease) in the faith says “What you continually SAY will eventually STAY”. This is so true!

The Message Bible says: “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.” Wow! I’d say that’s to the point!

Since it’s my choice — I choose to use words that give life!

EnJOY your day!
