tobyMac - Speak Life


I heard this song several times, before actually having God work on my life in this area. In fact it wasn't until today after receiving a thank you card from a co-worker.  She wrote "You are always thinking of others and have been so encouraging.  I feel so blessed to have you as a friend." That card got me thinking about how many times I'm not encouraging to others and how many times I am not speaking life to others.  TobyMac posted "Your words. Your actions. Your time. Your gifts. You can use any of these to add value to someone TODAY.  Remind yourself to #SpeakLife throughout your week..."  So today, I began a challenge I believe God is wanting me to do.  My post with this was "How many times have I been one to use my words to hurt and not to speak life?  I fail so many times, but I'm challenging myself beginning today to try to speak life to others. I realize I work in a place that can use words of life, and I so many times, just suck the life out of people."  I want to speak life to others. I want others to see Jesus in me.  When I do that, I can be a great witness for Christ. 

Tonight's bible study was from Proverbs 4:20-27.  Verse 24 says "Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you."  Beside this verse in my bible I wrote "SPEAK LIFE."  A reminder of my challenge.
