Words are powerful!

Have you ever had someone provide you with constructive criticism using harsh words?  I have, and I can tell you that the effect of it was not a good feeling at all.  In fact, those hurtful words stayed in my heart for a while, so long that my attitude and thinking were controlled by it.  Words are so powerful that it can provide you happiness or sadness.  The bible says in Proverbs 18:2, Words can bring death and life!  Talk too much, and you will eat everything you say.  Before we speak words out, we ought to filter them to guard from harming others. Proverbs 15:1 says, A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up. 

We definitely cannot control what comes out of the other person’s mouth, their attitude or way of thinking, but we can control what comes out of our mouth, and that is what God is more concern about.  Remember, that God is watching over our ever step.  He cares for all of us and knows what is in the hearts of his children, whether you speak it or not.  Proverbs 5:21 says, The Lord sees everything, and he watches us closely.  Jeremiah 17:10 reads, “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according what their deeds deserve.” 
Therefore, we are to be mindful of our surroundings, as we know, it can have a major impact on what comes out of our mouths, and usually what comes out it, is what is in the heart of a person, and we all know that the heart is the steering wheel of our lives.  Proverb 23:7 says, For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Be aware that there are people with hurtful hearts that do not know how to heal their wounds.  If you are one of these people, pray and seek God that he gives you a new heart so you can love others, as he would like you to.  Psalm 51:10 says, God, create a pure heart in me, and renew a right attitude within me.  If we are willing to change, God is willing to do everything possible to give us our heart’s desire.  His desire is for you to run to him, and declare him in your life.  God is waiting for all of us to allow him to make a brand new change in our lives, a change that will impact you and everyone around you.  His love renews you, it is contagious, it has no respect of a person, it has no limitations, it is everlasting, etc. 
You get my point, right…God’s love is all we need.  Focus on the heavenly things first, and the rest will fall into place.   

God bless you all,
