A happy 😊 2019 to my esteemed readers and loyal followers. Thank you for a great experience last year as we look forward to an even more amazing 😉 year! To kickstart the year, I thought of what better way to inspire than making my first post of the year about the power of our words be it spoken or written. As it is rightly said,
“Anytime someone has your ear, they influence you “
WORDS, is a five letter word that carries so much depth and power. People make use of different varieties and combinations of words daily to communicate either by speaking, writing, listening or reading.
Have you thought about your words lately? They are powerful and can either tear down or build up, encourage or discourage, heal or wound and poison or nourish. Have you ever said something and instantly wished you never said it? Well that’s just how much weight words carry. Most times we speak even before we give our words a proper thought just to consider the impact it would have on those we used them on.
Words don’t just impact once, they impact over and over again. The things that you say today, write or post today will live in the hearts and minds of people much more longer than you remember saying them as words stay with people for a long, long time. You can forget the actions of people but you might never forget the words they spoke to you whether uplifting and most especially when those words put you down.
Words create pictures in our minds which helps to either grow or wither our self image. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your words as what you speak, you call into being. Your words decide your future as you are today what you said you were yesterday and what you believed others said. Learn to speak words of boldness, confidence, admiration, courage, respect, esteem and most of all love.
The book of Proverbs 18, verse 21 says, “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit”. You have been given the power to pour a soothing balm on others – over and over again. Words of wisdom, blessing, grace, encouragement, intercession, gratitude, praise, compliments, belief and faith should be far from our lips.
So in this New Years, let’s bear the following principles in mind when next we decide to use our words.
- More words, greater responsibility and accountability with God and people.
- We all offend others with our words but we owe it to ourselves to minimize just how much we do.
- Your words are a rudder of your life.
- Your words reveal the state of your heart and mind.
- Your words can do long term destruction.
- Your words are easily consumed by others which can in turn impact their life for a pretty long time.
Choose today to use your words to edify others and yourself.
Enjoy the very best 2019 has to offer 🎉🎊🍾❤️❤️❤️
Loads of love ❤️💕💕
