#TheSHIFT: DECLARATION - Tell Me About Your Words...

Greetings!
 
BlogFam, 
 
Words are powerful.
 
Words make people smile and cry.
 
Words make people lead and follow.
 
Words make people sit and stand.
 
Words make people love and hate.
 
Words are powerful.
 
People break up and make up because of words.  People meet up and hook up because of words.  People give up and help up because of words.  People rise up and speak up because of words.
 
Words are powerful.
 
Words are so powerful that the Proverbs declares that the words that are spoken by our tongue have the power of life and death, and "those who love it will eat its fruit." [Proverbs 18:21] 
 
Words are powerful.
 
So, what kinds of words have YOU been using lately?
 
A few weeks ago, I was driving along and received a phone call from my mother.  She asked me HOW I was doing.  I replied positively.  Then she asked me WHAT I was doing and I paused for three seconds.  In those three seconds, I crafted a response to that question that is more authentic to who I am and who I believe I am becoming.  I, as most of you, when we are doing the mundane, trivial things that just have to be done, our answer to the question of WHAT we are doing in the midst of the mundane and the trivial is more than likely - NOTHING!  But in those three seconds, I can say that I felt convicted at the thought of saying what I had always said because my truth is so far from a response of - NOTHING!  I am doing so much more than NOTHING in the grand scheme of my life and God has so much more than NOTHING planned for my whole life.  So, the response to my mother's question had to be different.  In those three seconds, I crafted a response that better represents who I am and who I am becoming.  I told my mother on that day, "I could say nothing, but the truth is, I am always dreaming and planning!"
 
Dreaming and planning.
 
Words are powerful.
 
As you prepare for and anticipate the imminent shifts in your own life, what kinds of words have YOU been using lately?  Are you using words of affirmation or defeat?  Are you using words of promise or despair?  Are you using words of hope or doubt?  Are you using words of faith or restriction?
 
Words are powerful.
 
I am new to this not using NOTHING to describe what I am doing.  But it feels good every time I speak the words of dreaming and planning as my response in the midst of the most mundane and trivial tasks.  That is my truth.  I am always dreaming and planning and making that declaration as I prepare for and anticipate shifts in my own life are at the same time words of blessing and life for me and for those who hear the words come out of my mouth.
 
Words are powerful.
 
I will also add this one point, for as much as the power of life and death are in the tongue, Jesus goes on to say this in Luke 6:45: “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
 
So, the words that you declare are a direct reflection of what is stored up in your own heart.  Listen to the words you speak.  Listen to the words that others are speaking around you. 
 
Words are powerful.
And your words are an indication of the good or evil stored up in your heart.
Again, I ask, what kinds of words have YOU been using lately?
 
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!

Delesslyn
