The Power of Our Words

Throughout our lives we casually say things, positive and negative without ever taking a moment to think about the power of our words.  We all have our beliefs of how life should be, but what we forget is that what works for one person may not work for another. Because, we each come to the table with a different background, and a different set of beliefs– we will never see things exactly the same way. 

The thing about words that people don’t always understand–is that words have power. Most of us desire happy lives filled with wonderful things, but we spend a great deal of time thinking and talking about all the things that we are unhappy about or don’t want, especially in relationships. In turn we continue receiving more of what we don’t want. Whether positive or negative if you say or think something enough it will eventually happen.  

So, instead of thinking and talking about what you don’t want, you have to find the positive in what you already have. You have to focus on what is already good in your life, and the good that you want to come. What you want may not come the way you want it to, but if you think positive, good will always come even if it doesn’t come exactly the way you think it should. 

We say things to and about each other that are sometimes unkind and hurtful, and many times our words are more wounding then we can imagine. But, just as we use our words and thoughts in an unkind way, we can use our words to uplift, motivate, and change our lives and the lives of others in a positive way. It’s easy to criticize someone because they don’t think the way you do, but it takes a bigger person to use their words in a constructive way to help someone understand their point of view or to help another person to better their life. 

It’s like the old saying “you get what you give.” If you use your words and your life in a positive way, you will get positive results in return. 

How are you using your words?

Love and blessings in divine order,
