The Choice of WORDS is POWERFUL. It Can Make or Break You.

My dear friend, Barb Van Stensel inspired this Sunday God First post. I want to give her all the credit.


I believe the choice of WORDS is POWERFUL. You will get what you constantly remind yourself. It can MAKE or BREAK you in whatever you set yourself to do.

It's similar to how you remind your 2-year old child, Not to MOVE when he's getting his diaper changed. Not to run around in the store. Not to touch the hot stove. You are reinforcing the "Not to" and that's what a child hears - Move, Run, Touch etc.

The same with our adult lives.

If we say that we are struggling with this economy, if we are challenged by this transaction not coming to a closing like we want - guess what? You are constantly reminding yourself, and uttering the things you very well Do Not Want. Yet, it's the very thing that happens in our lives.

Instead, when you tell yourself that You have the very opportunity to grow in reaching out to people in phone conversations, You are learning how to bullet proof your transactions. Don't that change our attitude, change our mindset and perhaps change the vibrations along the way?

I'm not saying just blindly change your words. You have to believe it. You want to really, really want it. You have to reach out to make that change. Sometimes, it also means going out to do something about it. Your mindset will change your perspective. Then, it will change your attitude. Ultimately, change the things that you do and how you operate.

Mindset alone will not be enough. You must want it enough to do something about it.

The choice of WORDS you use can change the outcome of your life. Different perspectives creates different opportunities.


Missy Caulk helped summed up the Scripture of the Week:

Phillipians 4:8-9
"Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies."

Loreena, this is a wonderful post.  There is POWER in our words and the way we think.  We truly have to "take every thought captive".  Thank you for the reminder that I need to think +!! :)

The tongue has the power of life and death :) Proverbs 18:21 - If that verse could invade every part of our life I think we may all think twice before we speak (or think).

     So true. The first ears to hear our words are our own. It's so important to be aware of the life we are speaking over ourselves. Your son is blessed to have a mom who understands this and can pass it on to him. I know you've posted he's a strong willed little guy but he is listening.

We are what we think, say and do.  So, let's think, say and do the right thing!
