Power in Words

“Your words have the power to hurt, to heal, open minds, open hearts and change the world. Never forget the responsibility you have over the words you speak.” (Steven Aitchison). Words are the conduit of life; either giving life or destroying life. In the Bible, Proverbs 12:18 states, “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing”. Anyone reading this is able to recall examples of words that built them up and words that tore them down, words that pierced like a sword or words that brought healing.

It is through blogging that I use the power of words to encourage others to find healing in their pain and open their minds to a greater being in the universe which hopefully, in some small way brings about positive change in our society. It is sitting in a chair sometimes for hours, banging away at a keyboard that I feel the power of words flowing through my fingertips as my thoughts race wanting to be delivered in written word. On the computer screen these thoughts are brought to life and given power as they are transferred to the reader with a prayer of petition that God would use my words for the good of others. With the light tap of the “submit” button my words have the potential to bring life to a dying world. May we never forget, words have power.

  1. Your blogs inspire me to remember how truly we are blessed…..and to remind me to always be a better person. To be kind always and to be a better listener and a better friend.

  2. I was thinking not long ago that I have not seen you post anything in your “From the Heart” blog. Nice to see you back at it. You chose a good topic and verse to share – COVID seems to have brought out the worst in most of us. I feel certain there are those in positions to influence that are determined to create divisiveness – and it seems to be working. Thank you for posting something to encourage thought about what our words do to others.

    Hugs to you –
