Many of us are masked and unaware to the powerful force that our words posses when spoken.
It’s one thing to say something in your head where nobody can hear it but yourself and God, it’s another to speak out loud for all to hear who listen.
Once words leave the tongue, they cannot return from where they came. Just as a river cannot decide to switch directions.
Given this awareness can feel a bit unsettling. You, yourself, begin to wonder about the influence of your language and if your very words are leaving positive or negative impressions on the heart and souls of others. You may never fully know.
But think for a moment…
…think of the words that have been spoken to you that you still remember. Words that you may have been carrying for years and still hold in your pocket today. What do you remember, what was said that inspires and encourages you? What was said that still haunts you?
Do you see?
You posses that same thing, that same power. As we all do. The ability to shape a persons life by a sentence. Whether it be good or cursed. We influence every time we speak.
It can be extremely difficult to be mindful when deciding to speak but it is something worth practicing. Who knows where your voice can take you and others. It is a gift each of us has been freely given. And it is to be used wisely otherwise we curse ourselves and others.
Speak with passion, love, and honesty. Swallow the words of hatred and deceit, otherwise beware of their consequences.
Remember that your words are a super power.
