Words are Powerful
𝐀𝐬 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫, 𝐈’𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐮𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬. Even as a child, I loved all things writing, communication, reading, and any creative forms of expression. In fact, I’ve shared this before: when I was about 8 years old, I won a school writing contest and I can still remember my mother walking me to cash that $5 check at the local grocery store.
Fast forward to my teenage days, early adulthood, and full adulthood…I was always a spokesperson, ghostwriter, event and content planner, and private consultant for others (even before it was my official title ). All of that to say; words are extremely powerful. And even as a child, I knew my mouth was an instrument.
My case in point is: my words won awards and got a lot of stuff done; but His Word is “…quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 Y’all, speak God’s WORD…and watch what happens… And it’s not a magic wand; let it do what He desires, in His timing, and it will radically transform your life, as well the lives of those connected to you. #LetGodDoIt #SpeakTheWord
