I’ve learned the hard way that words can hurt deeply. Growing up I didn’t FIT in since I grew quickly – both tall and wide. You might actually go WOW if you saw the growth chart from the Dr. I can still see that line showing normal development and mine. LOL
I also developed that wrong sense of getting back at others for the hurt I felt. So wrong and how I wish I could take my words back…but I can’t and you can’t.
BUT…We can start NEW- every second we can start NEW! Change can begin with you!
Did you know there are more negative adjectives than positive ones?
It takes LOTS of positive words to overcome a negative already said?
Sometimes it takes LOTS of years to defeat the words spoken to us.
Many people have been more impacted by negative words than fists. News media, social media and more are affecting us each day as we listen and read words.
In the beginning God created GOOD things with His words. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. Proverbs 18:21
If we are going to make a difference in this world – just like our Creator – we need to start with our words.
Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 in prayer
