Another share from my 10 day writing challenge this from day seven prompt # 7: How to use your words.
The old saying sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never harm me. Lies. Proverbs 18:21 ( KJV) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Words can kill, they can give life, bless and curse. Some words express hatred, and some are filled with love, hope, compassion, and peace. We are charged today with the task of using our words impeccably, but this isn’t always easy to do. Sometimes situations catch us off guard and we spew out words that we can’t take back. Anger makes our words commit violence acts against others. In sadness words can heal and comfort. We asks for forgiveness with words, but the feeling comes from deep from within. We can use our words to resolve conflicts without verbally insulting others.
Today, I choose to speak words of blessings over my life. I have the gifts and talents to make my life vision a reality. I am motivated, creative, smart, clear, focused, wise, and loving. I choose to live a positive life of happiness and abundance. I choose to use my words to heal, uplift, encourage myself to be and to do better for me because I deserve a good life.
Today, I speak positive blessings over you my readers. My hope for you is that regardless of your struggles your powerful, strong, and able to endure. You can live a positive, happy, healthy, strong life. You have the talents and gifts to succeed. There is only one you to do what you do. Don’t allow doubt, negative chatter from others to distract you from your life’s vision. Go with those voices in your head that say, yes you can and yes you will. I want the best for you because you deserve to live a happy peaceful life.
Now the difficult part. I am supposed to speak words of blessings over a person or people who I don’t have a good relationship with. How do I begin to speak positive words of blessings for people who have said unkind words to me and over me. People who have broken my trust and treated me unkind with their words. How can I say that I wish them well The I remember that hurting people hurt others. We all need love peace, compassion, respect, support, understanding, and forgiveness. My hope for you is that despite speaker words of hate towards me, I hope you find happiness and live an abundant life. I pray that you never harm others with your words of destruction and bad deeds.
