Word's Do Matter

Word's do matter...           This picture caught my attention quickly but beyond the concern for people who are the victim of verbal abuse.  (Don't get me wrong this is a serious issue and I am saddened by their pain) I was reminded of the power we have in our tongue.  It made me think of times where I was diligent to change my negative thinking and claim healing and life but there are many times where I fall victim to the enemy in my thinking and speak death rather then life.  

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.  Proverbs 18:21

Are you using your words to encourage and bring life or are you bringing death and discouragement?  I mean really think about the things you are saying.  Such as speaking illness into our bodies rather then speaking health and healing, or speaking bad about our husband instead of lifting him up.  Talking bad or gossip about a friend or family rather then speaking life into them.  It is so common for us to allow the enemy to win this battle and make us think we are defeated or not worthy but we need to stop that thinking and remember who we are in CHRIST!  "I AM MORE THEN A CONQUEROR!  So no more saying, "I'm sick" "Your killing me" "I am hormonal" (yep that has been my words lately...preaching to myself here)  "I'm depressed" "your dumb" or how about "my kids are naughty" my kids are rude" "my kids don't listen" or how about "my husband is ______"  

If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?  1John 4:20
Lets try to remember to LOVE more like CHRIST! 

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life. Prov. 15:4

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Pro 12:18

Have you ever wondered who started the saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me."  This is just not true and very un-biblical.                   So how do we start speaking life rather then death?  First, get in the WORD and second think before you speak!  :)  Would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!  :)

So, so true! I've often thought that bones can heal, but words go far deeper and leave scars that at times no one can see.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
