“I tell you, on the day of judgement people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” – Matthew 12:36
From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep, the words that we speak influence us whether consciously or subconsciously. We have the power to speak things into existence so we have to be aware of the language we use. If we say ‘Today will be a bad day’ than most likely it will be. However, if we say ‘Today will be a good day’ than it could possibly be the best day ever! It is important to understand that words are like air for our Souls.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. -Proverbs 18:21
This plan will focus on planting a word, watering and watching it grow each day. By explaining definitions, giving examples or learning the bible these words are sure to make an impact within your life. It’s time to get right with God by getting right within which starts with our words. If we set our minds on the word of the day it will help us to stand strong in faith, help others and ultimately lead to the path God created for you.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. -Ephesians 4:29
In the beginning of 2015, each week I would write a new word of the week in my planner. I recently revisited my last year’s planner and seen all the words I had chosen and thought to create this plan. Each week a new word would marinate in my mind which helped me grow in faith, feel happier and become a better person within. Our thoughts shape the way we view ourselves, people around us and our environment. If we focus on everything life has thrown at us, it is easy to feel overwhelmed which may result in negativity. The moment I found myself slipping, I would remind myself of the word of the day and instantly feel better. By the end of the week I was able to look back and see the progress I made. Now, a year later I am able to share this plan with the world.
