The power of words


I, better than most people know the power of words, as I was in a verbally abusive marriage for 24 years.

I am still going through this, because my girls are dealing with the abusive from their father as well.


Words can and will hurt you…the childhood song “Sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt me”


That song is crap,

because who ever wrote it, was obviously

never verbally abused.


“The tongue is the smallest member but holds the most power”


All through the bible there are verses that say this, remember what you speak and who you speak over. Your words can change a person, that is how much power they hold.


Ask yourself are emotionally, physically or mentally in captivity with the words you speak?

Do you say, “I can’t do that, I will never achieve that, that is too big of a dream”

Do you listen to the outside voices? “You’ll never be anything, your useless, your nothing”


Do you, yourself speak it over your children? “Your just like your father, your stupid, I can’t stand you”


There is a heart and mouth connection in our faith

“If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart, you will be saved”


Speak your faith, even when you can’t see it, that is what faith is all about.

In the word of God, we find love, we find acceptance, he is not a man that he can lie, he gave you purpose before you were formed. He spoke what and who you were going to be, over your life, remember he never makes mistakes, you are not a mistake.


We have to remeber that words attract spirits…

Good or bad…

It can bring us blessings or curses.


The book and movie The Secret tells you all the same things as the bible…what you put out there comes back to you, you speak what you want your life to be, what you want to attract into your life.


Never forget that God has a plan for your life, plans of prosperity and good.


The word of God is a seed and every seed has a purpose.

If you mediate on the word, if you speak the word of God, if you surround yourself with people who also speak the word, you will change your situation…


“Death and life is in the power of the tongue”


What have you been speaking over your life, your relationship, your finances, your children? Think long and hard about that.


You are the mouthpiece of God, you can see what God sees, he made you in his image, see faith is the substance of things hoped for yet unseen.


So today my friends, remember you need to feed yourself, to exercise your faith, to speak over yourself and your family. You have the power, an amazing power of good, you can change the world, one kind word at a time, you my friend, have the power of words.


“Be the change you want to see”


“And just when the caterpillar thought his life over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
