THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK……
I simply cannot get over what comes out of some people’s mouths…….About a month ago I was waiting in line and the woman in front of me begin using profanity when talking about a routine matter….It was as if it simply was a part of her vocabulary…..The receptionist and I both looked at each other like “this woman is nuts…..” I don’t think the woman was nuts…but instead crude…..What was she thinking?Don’t people realize their words reflect who they are?….It is all about words….The words we choose reflect what we feel about ourselves inside…..Her crude words simply was reflecting how she saw herself…….
I hear people speak words that are so negative about their own lives and about the people around them….What are they thinking? Don’t they realize words have power……? I don’t think they do….but when I look closer at their lives it simply looks a mess….For most people who have messed up lives also have messed up words…..The words they use day in and day out simply build the life they have…..It also reflects the life they have built….
Becoming WORD aware is key to how our lives turn out…..When I speak something I always THINK BEFORE I SPEAK to make sure the words are reflecting who I am…..Making sure the words are reflecting what I want to bring about in my life…..Making sure my words are honest and yet point things in a positive direction…..
I am not a Pollyanna at all…..I am very much a realist who sees the world as a chaotic place with lots of chaotic people…..I also see the world as a beautiful place that God created for us to enjoy….It isn’t God that messed it up….It was people….and most of those people somewhere along the line used the wrong words….After all, the Bible speaks of The Power of the Tongue…..I agree….Our words have power….Lots of power….
Our words have power over every area of our lives from our relationships to our jobs to our health to our finances….Yes our words point our lives in the direction that we speak them…
I think so many people don’t even think before they speak….So much garbage that comes out of people’s mouths when we listen closely….So much negativity…..That when I hear someone saying something positive my ears simply perk up…..Because I tend to almost shut off my hearing at times to avoid the garbage talk that is out there….I am protective of what goes in my ears and into my mind….for eventually those words will make their way into my Soul….and I guard my Soul…..
So Yes, I think before I speak….I wish everyone did…..The written word is speaking as well, so I try to make sure what I write is truly what I want to say……Yes, it is all about the words we say…..Those words tell others who we are and what our intentions are…..Let your words bless the world…..Let your words create the life you want…..Let your words point every area of your life in a positive direction that you want to go……Yes, Think before you speak…..
