Powerful Words

Description

God calls us to speak to each other with gentle, loving, kind words. We should always be mindful of what our words are towards others, especially our children.

Ephesians 5: 19

Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual  songs.  Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything.

Think about how many words you speak a day to your children.  Think of all the opportunities throughout your day to speak encouraging words, uplifting words, words that give life.  Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are my words harsh or gentle?
  • Are my words loving or angry?
  • Are my words sarcastic?
  • Are my words uplifting?
  • Are my words glorifying to God?

God calls us to speak to each other with gentle, loving, kind words.  We should always be mindful of what our words are towards others, especially our children.  We should guard our tongues and be ever aware if we are cutting someone down or building them up with our words. 

Today, as you go about your day, be aware of your speech. At the end of the day, ask yourself, "Did my child see Jesus today through my words?"  Sometimes as moms, we need to circle back to our children and ask for their forgiveness for the way we handled a situation.  Do you need to apologize today, for the hurtful words you used? Start each day anew— remember, the words of a mom are very powerful indeed. 

Prayer

Father, Thank You God for the gift of my children.  I pray that I would be very mindful of my words today.  God, if I get frustrated and angry at my children, remind me that I need to hold my tongue and not lash out.  Replace my anger with Your love and grace.  You give me an endless amount of grace throughout my day...please help me to extend the same grace to those around me.  Only in You, can I live a loving life.  Remind me throughout my day of all the many things I have to be thankful for.  I praise Your wonderful and holy name.
