Proverbs 25:11 hcs

apple

We talk day and night usually giving little thought to what we say.
 Our words are many things;  they can give hope or despair,
comfort or hurt, they can encourage or beat down, teach or confuse,
be truth or lies, make us happy or sad, laugh or cry.
Our words can be golden with silver linings or black with disease.
Who and what we are is shown to others by our words.

What do your words say about you?
Do they reflect the love and truth of the Lord?

Psalm 19:14 nlt

heart-289710_640

Whether we are speaking or thinking,
whatever our words or thoughts are,
let them be acceptable and to the Lord’s liking;
He is our sanctuary and our Savior

Do you give careful consideration not only 
to the words you say but to your thoughts? 

Blessings this day of grace,

Ephesians 4:29 nlt

talkWhat we say and how we say it is to help not hinder others.
Our words can build up or tear down, heal or hurt, comfort or upset.
Thinking before speaking is always the wise person’s way.

Are you quick to speak or do you first consider your words?   
Are your words positive or negative, a blessing or a curse?

Blessings this day of grace,

Job 42:6 hcs

rainbow-smoke-background

Like Job we all have words we want to take back;
words said to God that are self-righteous and proud.
And like Job let us repent with humility and remorse;
praising God for His grace and mercy.

Have you said things to God that  you now regret?
Do you see the sin in your attitude and pride? 

Is your heart-broken that you repent in meekness and sorrow?

Blessings this day of grace,

1 John 3:18 nlt

hand-197895_640

When we say “I love you”
the word love is a verb; movement is indicated.
Loving each other is not meant to be passive.
When we love each other we are 
not to be still and indifferent
we are to be moved and active.

Do you express your love in words and actions?
Which is easier for you?  Why?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia
