You can change the course of your life…

“You can change the course of your day and even your life with your words.” Anonymous

“Words are seeds that do more than blow around. They land in our hearts and not the ground. Be careful what you plant and careful what you say. You might have to eat what you planted one day.” -Unknown

Author Gary Chapman in his book, ‘Love as a Way of Life’ uses the vivid metaphor for words as being either ‘bullets or seeds’. If we use our words as bullets with a feeling of superiority and condemnation, we are not going to be able to restore a relationship to love. If we use our words as seeds with a feeling of support and sincere good will, we can rebuild a relationship in positive and life-affirming ways.

 

“Be careful what you say. You can say something hurtful in ten seconds, but ten years later, the wounds are still there.” -Joel Osteen

Words are Powerful. An unleashed tongue can make or break relationships, family bonds or even cause you to loose your job.

“If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words, we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts. We can always replace negative with positive.” -Betty Eadie

“One kind word can change someone’s entire day.” -Unknown

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” -Mother Teresa

“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
Yehuda Berg

“Don’t mix your words with your mood, you can change your mood but you can’t take back your words.” Anonymous

“Words are containers for power, you choose what kind of power they carry.” Joyce Meyer
