Words are powerful. One word can breath healing. One word can turn a not so good day into something better. Words can be life.
Words also have the opposite effect as well. They can tear down. They can cause division. One word can stand the test of time from childhood into the adult years defining that individual.
I am constantly reminded how I need to use my words. When I speak… I choose life or death.
In the early years of my marriage I spoke what was on my mind. Constantly.
I would tear down, criticize, and hold onto resentment.
Over time I began to realize just how much my words were affecting my marriage and my life.
Then God began to soften my heart and guide me to a more gentler approach. Revealing when I speak positive how not only does my relationships improve but also me on the inside improves.
As we are gearing up for our Thanksgiving Holiday I know it may sound cliche to say that I am grateful. However, as cliche as it sounds, this time of year slows us down and reminds us how much we really do have.
And this Monday I want to focus on my marriage. Today I am going to choose to speak life into my husband and let him know just how much I am grateful to him. I know I can make a list of many little things. But today I want to focus on 3.
Today I want to encourage you to speak life into your loved ones. Rather it be your husband/wife or significant other. Rather it be a friend, coworker, or child.
I challenge you to choose today and everyday to Speak Life. And share below 3 reasons why you are grateful for them! And after sharing be sure to tell them today!
