God makes my heart smile...
Proverbs 15:13 The Message
A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face;
a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day.
There is power in words ~
I appreciate people who will encourage you and see your heart. I was speaking a friend at church yesterday and it was like she could see inside my heart. I ask if my face showed emotions and she said no, I looked into your eyes. The eyes are windows to our soul. The tongue has power greater than we might realize at times.
James 3:5-8 New International Version
Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
THINK ABOUT IT ~
What would life would be like, if we spoke kind words all the time? It simply hard to imagine when our world speaks so much negative. Even as a child, I was spoken to in a negative way and I believed the worst about myself instead of the best. Growing up wasn't always easy for me. I compared my life and wanted to live somewhere else. I didn't like being teased as a kid or made fun of in life. I grew up believing I wasn't the same as other kids. Sitting alone in my room, gave me a lot of time to think and make my own decisions of self. I was wrong in many ways and yet I spoke life unto myself. I knew when I grew up, I wanted to teach others to be kind and like themselves.
This journey called life has brought each of us to great places of life and sad places of life. The focus needs to be on you now. You can do all things through Christ and you can purpose this a great day. Even in the midst of it all, God is there. He is waiting on you to say yes to him and allow the peace he offers flow inside your mind and heart. It's time to be a overcomer of all things and just trust again.
It's true ~ what we think upon matters! What we speak about matters! Let the words come into your head override any negative thoughts and purpose this a good day.
I thank you for taking time to read this, plant hope in a new day and spread this message to others. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Happy new day!
