How Your Words Can Impact Others
Earlier this week, I was talking to a dear young lady about how some things in her life weren't going the way she had hoped and planned. She was feeling down and said she felt worthless. I simply told her, "YOU are of high value!" She said that no one had ever said that to her before. It made a big impact on her and gave her a new perspective in the midst of life changes.
I thought about what I've said to some people in the past few weeks. Did I encourage them? Were my words hurtful or supportive? Condemning or uplifting? Could I have said something more in love than the way I actually said it?
Our words have power not only to move mountains by faith but to also to speak blessings over others. As the week draws to a close, take time to think about what you can say to those around you to encourage them, build them up, impact their lives in a positive way like nothing they've experienced before. Then, let the Lord work on those seeds you've planted.
