Proverbs 18: 21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
This is a powerful truth. Words have the power to destroy others or the power to encourage and build up others.
Healthy positive words are the foundation of loving caring relationships with God and others.
We must filter our thoughts that create our feelings and produce our words and actions through God first.
If we speak negative (death) words, we will reap negative consequences. Negative thoughts and words cause the brain to turn black and appears to have holes – Dr. Caroline Leaf – a Spirit-filled brain scientist.
When we speak positive (life) words, we will reap positive consequences. Positive thoughts and words cause the brain to ‘light up’ building new connectors – Dr. Caroline Leaf.
I choose to speak life words because the brain controls the whole body. I want to be healthy in body, soul, and spirit!
It’s a choice! “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.” This is my prayer and submission to God!
