The Power of Words...

Lately I've been thinking about words.
not just the written or typed ones...
but spoken words as well.

They have such power.
Power to give life.
Power to heal.
Power to lift-up and encourage.

They also have the power to kill.
Such strong words, yes, but so true.
Words can tear down.
Words can cause division.
The wrong words spread faster than fire...
consuming the hearts of those they touch.

Words have the power to change hearts.
To bridge or to divide.
Words penetrate so quick, so deep, so fast.

Psalm 19:14 I love..
 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
       be pleasing in your sight,
       O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

It was among one of the first verses I learned...
So powerful...
So encouraging...
Full of promise from God who
 will guide me in my words when I ask.
Who will help me in those moments when ...
those words may not be so pleasing.
If.... I seek and ask of Him.
