Let the Words I Speak...

The words we speak are full of energy and will prompt a response in those who hear them. I've heard it said that choice of words and tone of voice make all the difference in the response we get from others. Here are the words from a song I heard on the radio by Hawk Nelson. The name of the song is "Words".

They've made me feel like a prisoner

They've made me feel set free

They've made me feel like a criminal

They've made me feel like a king

They've lifted my heart to places I've never been

And they've dragged me down

Back to where I began

Words can build you up

Words can break you down

Start a fire in your heart

Put it out again.

The remainder of the song is a prayer of desire to bless others with words that are spoken. What if we all were determined to speak things in kindness. It would require speaking less because we couldn't just blurt what pops into our heads.

Good lesson. Think first, then speak.
