Something to Think About # 1: Words

Image

How we respond to controversy defines how we see ourselves. Just think about it. How many times in life do we really reflect on the choices we’ve made, the people we’ve encountered and the possibility that we handled everything just as it should be? Every word we utter not only holds a consequence in our own conscience, but for the way in which we mirror a given circumstance.

We are really only given one chance to say what needs to be said, stay silent for what need not be uttered and smile through life’s ups and downs. So take the time today to make the choice of using your words to heal, not to break. To build each other up in song, and leave anger at the foot of the door; realizing that the gift of this day is a one-time deal… no take-backs, do-overs or white out for the mistakes we need not make when we take the time to care for others, the same way we want others to care for us.

Proverbs 12:18 “The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

“Words” Lyrics

They’ve made me feel like a prisoner
They’ve made me feel set free
They’ve made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king
They’ve lifted my heart
To places I’d never been
And they’ve dragged me down
Back to where I began

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

You can heal the heartache
Speak over the fear
(Speak over the fear)
God, Your voice is the only thing
We need to hear
(We need to hear)

Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)
