YOUR SPOKEN WORDS MEAN THE MOST TO YOUR LIFE
I was talking with a friend some days back, and during the course of our conversation, I noticed that she had used abusive words a number of times, just within a very short period of time. I was compelled to stop and ask her if she was conscious of it, and her reply was; “there are some things that when you’re talking about, you just have to say those things” I totally disagreed with her and tried to make her understand that there always better ways to express ourselves, without necessarily using negative words, if only we could be intentional about it. The major issue was not that she used negative words, but that it had become a habit for her.
The first-time words were used, they were not in a conversation, they were used in creation! “Do my words create or destroy me?” This is a question I ask myself regularly. Everything is created out of energy and our spoken words have energy and power to effect greatchanges in our lives, but we are the ones to determine if those changes would be negative or positive. Betty Eadie said; “if we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words, we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts. We can always replace negative with positive.”
The mysteries that are attached to our spoken words cannot be over emphasized, Jhay Tihh and Chenemican testify to that. To begin with, scientists say that without sound waves, we humans would not be able to speak because our vocal chords generate sound waves that are transmitted through the ear of the listener. For me, this mystery is enough to teach me to always try to get my words right before I speak, and even when I don’t, I say; “I am sorry”. I don’t know about you.
Personally, I believe that if our tongue is fire, then our saliva is the fuel that ignites the fire whenever we speak. Note that whatever fire touches, it turns to fire. So, my question to you is, is your fire igniting your greatness or is it causing you to become insignificant? What are you saying to your friends? What are you allowing them to say to you? For some us, insulting others has become a habit. It just always comes out, even when we are not conscious of it.
Joel Osteen said; “Your words become your reality”. He said again; “You are where you are today because of what you have been saying about yourself. Your wordsare like seeds, when you speak something out, you give life to what you are saying, if you continue to say it, it eventually becomes a reality. I know that negative thoughts are almost inevitable, but don’t give them life by speaking them out! It is one thing for me to imagine or think that I cannot have an “A” in “Use of English”, but it is another thing for me birth and bring that thought to reality by continually saying that I cannot have an A in Use of English. That’s the power that lies in your spoken words!
If you want to be blessed, say to yourself; “I am blessed”, if you want to be successful, say to yourself every day; “I am successful”, if you want to be strong, even when you feel weak, say to yourself; “I am strong”. It is not a lie! It is creating your life and reality with the power of your words! And believe me when I say those things would definitely eventually happen!
Having dwelt bit in the depths of your soul, I’d like to take my leave through the door of your heart, but before I take my leave, I dare and challenge you from today onwards, to wipe out negativity from your life and begin to create with your words! Remember, your words mean the most to your life! Bad energy, stay far away!
