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.
