WORDS CAN LAST FOREVER ~
JESUS LOVES YOU
1 Peter 4:8-11 New International Version (NIV)
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
WORDS CAN LAST FOREVER ~
Even negative words can last. Words spoken can plant within our hearts and we need to release them. Verse 9 above speaks of offering hospitality to one another without grumbling. Grumbling is be a mindset of others and their words can hurt us. We can take things on that we should never take on. I have noticed that people who say they love me, can hurt me. Their words are harsh at times and that isn't an attitude of Jesus at all. I never read about him going about speaking harsh words but kind words. Encouraging words go so far in life. Just like the children's story of the little train that thinks he can. He did it and the train made it.
WORDS ~ YOU CAN DO THIS
Philippians 4:13 King James Version (KJV)
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
I am encouraging you this day and everyday of your life to know your are important. You are unique and God created you for purpose. You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you! Never doubt the power of God. The one who created the heavens and the earth. The one who created you to do great things. The sky is awake, so you are awake. Be free and living in freedom of negative words. Not only words, but actions that have formed your life. Let go of what you can't change and be you.
As a child, I heard a lot of negative words. I look into the mirror of my soul and realize I have held onto them. I am releasing them now and forever. I am not dumb, stupid, ugly, fat and I won't allow others to speak to me with harsh words. God is good all the time and he wants me to live in freedom of negative words. God wants you to live in freedom of negative words too. Our children forms us, but our adulthood is our choice. I care and I pray daily for you, your family and friends. Purpose this a good day.
