Words are tremendously powerful!
They have the power to help, hurt, heal,
encourage, strengthen, and build us up.
Words create impressions, images, and expectations.
Since thoughts determine actions,
there is a powerful connection between
the words we use and the results we get.
We speak so eagerly and so easily at times.
Unfortunately, more often than not,
those harmful, poorly chosen, and thoughtless utterances,
are often felt in the home environment.
In some homes...
obscene language, abusive speech,
and stinging sarcasms are considered the norm.
everyone involved is emotionally stirred.
Poorly timed, poorly chosen words,
and senseless chatter can kill enthusiasm,
cause deep emotional wounds, lower expectations,
break one's spirit, shatter self-esteem,
destroy relationships, it dissipates our energy,
and holds people back.
God has given most of us the gift of speech
and the ability to think.
This gift has value.
Speech is a gift
of such amazing value...
that it should not be used lightly
Something carelessly expressed
in the heat of the moment...
could wound for a lifetime.
Words are compelling.
Words can build up or destroy.
Some words have power beyond the years,
beyond whatever changes we might make
to ourselves and our lives.
Words have a way of penetrating the very depths
of our being, for good or for evil.
Our words should be carefully chosen.
Our words are like seeds we sow,
and we never know which seeds will
grow... perhaps they all will.
there will be a harvest,
and our harvest will depend on
what we have sown...
good, bad, or indifferent.
Words have great impact for
good or ill.
The quality of our life
is the result of the seeds we have sown.
None of us can escape the harvest of
our own words!
Research shows that words have emotional,
physical, and spiritual impact.
Words are messengers;
they carry defeat, they bring worry, and death...
or transmit victory, peace, and life for many!
Words can cause physical changes in our body
and change the Spiritual atmosphere.
A thoughtless word...
can devastate one's life.
The deepest scars
are those we do not see.
