faith friday

"death and life are in the power of the tongue. and those who love it will eat it's fruit."
 proverbs 18:21

above is a passage i have to remind myself of often. i think for many of us our natural tendency can be the personality of a debbie downer, negative nelly, pessimistic polly . . . you get the point.


it seems so much easier at times to talk about our problems, how our bodies aren't what they used to be {hello!}, how our kids are driving us nuts or how maybe marriage isn't the fairy tale we thought it would be.

but i love this sobering passage because it reminds me that my words aren't just futile gibberish that come out of my mouth, float into the universe and are never seen again. no, my words actually carry weight in my life and can dictate the condition of what i do or do not have. 


i am the greatest speaker of death or life into my world and today i choose {because it is a choice!} to speak good, lovely and godly things over myself, my family and my future even if i don't feel like it!

i hope you are encouraged today to do the same! xo

and just to brighten up your day get a load of these two birdies who had such a fun play date yesterday!
