Choose your words carefully. Words are powerful, and they can have a definite impact on those receiving them. Choose to speak words of kindness and positivity in all situations.
To me, Joyce Meyer said it best in her best-selling book, Change Your Words, Change Your Life.
“There is a simple rule we can follow to guide us in our conversation: If it is good, uplifting, wholesome, and pleasant, say all you want to, but if it is negative, critical, and complaining, then don’t say it. Ask God to change your heart so there is not even a hint of wanting to say it. What is in our heart will eventually come out of our mouth, so we cannot change what we say unless we change what we think.”
The emotional potency of spoken words is real. They can heal, and they can annihilate. The power lies within you.
Everybody remembers that playground nonsense of " Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me."That was just whistling in the dark when someone trashed your spirit with harsh, judgmental, or attacking words.
