There are several youtube videos on the power of words concerning plants and children. Kids and plants who were encouraged and told loving messages thrived and those who were told negative, discouraging messages withered and did poorly. I can tell from teaching also. There is a lot of power in our words.
We must take care to always speak love and encouragement to anyone. We will be held accountable for our words. I have confessed a lot of word misuse to the Lord and am actively working to be careful with my word use. We must catch and control them on the way out and keep our hearts pure by Bible reading and study and prayer and relationship with Christ. He strengthens us when asked.😃❤️
Some people want bad things to happen. I used to think this was ridiculous but I see it. Always focused on the bad or in a constant hunt for it and focus on anything remotely unpleasant and blowing that into significance are all ways they prove this. Some people do not want n peace and prove it these ways. They want war and ugly and bad things because that is matches what is going on inside of them or they are used to it.
Instead of that, in direct opporition to it, if we embrace Christ, He gives peace and joy inside to all you to desire and work for good things. We have control of this and we do much greater even than that by yielding control to Jesus who is bivgerhan any bad habit or bad thing.
Focusing on God and accepting His love allows us to make good choices, which put any resulting bad thing into proper perspective, which is, eternally – speaking, insignificance. Choose today. You are stronger than you think (with God) and have the power to choose. 😄❤
I wear many hats.
I am Christian, wife, mother, friend, grandmother, teacher, Sunday School teacher, church pianist, caretaker times three, band member/co-leader, neighbor, singer/songwriter doctor, PE coach, cleaner, dog owner, babysitter, driver, blogger, author/writer, encourager, promoter, prayer warrior.
Those are a lot of hats. I was exhausted writing those down.
How do I do it all and stay sane (most of the time)?
One Person gives me strength every single day, every moment of the day, loving me through every step…. God.
God is my Heavenly Father and in our loving relationship as Father and adopted daughter, He cares for me. God is not a construct and terrifying judge (although He will judge people who reject Jesus Christ as Messiah and Lord of their life). God is Father through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. As Father He can lavish love and power on us. As Father, He gives me new energy and strength every single moment. He is such a good Father.
And that is my big secret. Many hats, one God. ❤❤❤
