Speak To Yourself

“The words you speak can define your future or plan your funeral.”

In a recent conference I attended called Gospel heritage, these words resonated with me more than any that were conferred over the course of that 3 day event. They were so impactful and illuminating that they caused me to do a self-evaluation regarding the words that I have chosen over the years. How those words had affected my life, my feelings about my destiny and myself. The words spoken that evening challenged me to choose my words more carefully and I felt it robbery not to share them with others.



Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Those who love it will eat of it's fruits. ~ Proverbs 18:21

I have read Proverbs 18:21 on numerous occasions, but this scripture has truly come alive for me this year. The words that we speak are truly powerful.  Morris Cerrullo says it this way “When you make a positive confession your words are infused with life- giving power and your faith becomes too powerful for the enemy to resist. (Point of Contact, pg. 16.) “He also suggests that “ your mind doesn’t know the difference between fact or fancy, so it responds to what you tell it.” 

Wow!! How insightful! Your brain feeds off of what “YOU” tell it. Not the words of others. Others may say things, but what you choose to receive from what is said, is what makes the difference. Moreover, what you choose to speak can produce a bountiful tree of fruit, whether it be good or bad. The most important voice that your brain responds to is your own. Therefore, it is important that we only allow positive words to surface on our tongue.
                    
You "Whatever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever thingsare of good report; if there be any virture and if there be any praise, think on these things" ~ Philippians 4:8                 

Instead of saying, “I’m fat, I’m inadequate, I’m not worthy, I’m ugly and the likes of these demeaning words… Think on the good and let those things flow from your lips. In the words of many wise mothers and teachers “If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all.” Many of us recall being chastened with these words growing up when teasing or poking fun at one of our peers. I challenge you to let this be a life practice, not only in regard to others, but when speaking about yourself. Speak good, empowering things over YOU.

Don’t allow the enemy to deposit negativity in your brain. Then you allow those toxins to filter into your psyche and later spill out of your mouth. You have the power to transform your reality, simply with your tongue. With that said, speak what you desire to be. Affirm yourself daily. Tell yourself that you are beautiful! You are special! You are favored of God and You are worthy! Speak Peace over your mind. Choose to speak life!  The more you say these things, the more your mind will believe them. And your reality will align with what you have spoken.

Remember Ladies:

"You Happy thoughts produce a happy life and what you speak is the key to it all."

  1. This is a great piece Mary, we make a choice to speak life or death to ourselves and others. There is a book called "Power of your Words" by Robert Morris. A must read if you want to change your speech. It helps re-define how you used your words.
