Words. Spoken words are powerful. How powerful? God said and the world came into existence.
And God said,”Let there be light,” and there was light.
What comes through as spoken words, first goes into the heart and mind. What thoughts do we infiltrate into the little hearts and minds of our children? Papa and Mama’s spoken words.
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.
Papa’s words protects and brings honour to his child.
Mama’s words strengthens and brings sophistication to her child.
My innermost being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right.
Words go both ways, to the listener and then back to the speaker; the Creator God, whom in His heart and mind, thought of me when He spoke the world into existence.
Be aware of what ideas and how words are prone to come out of ourselves, and also those that we are prone to receive and hold tightly – like seeds and swords, they have power. They become the most powerful when they no longer need be sown or wielded, ingrained in our actions or non-action.
