Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

The Power of Words by Jan Christiansen

The Power of Words

Have you ever thought about the power of words to influence our mood and our outlook on life?

Just look at the words on these stones and tell me how they make you feel?

Then think of some words that have the opposite effect on you.

Here’s your assignment…should you choose to accept. Pull out a tablet and draw a line down the middle of a page. On the left side of that line fill the page with words that make you feel good, words that encourage and uplift.

Then on the right side, make a list of words that drag you down and make you feel hopeless.

Next, make a promise to yourself that you will not use those spirit crushing words on yourself or anyone else. Read and re-read the words on the left. Get them stuck up in your head. Repeat them to yourself and use them on others.

Be an encourager…not a discourager.

Share with us what words are on your list (both sides), so we can all add to our lists.

Blessings to you,
