Power of Words


Fridays I fluctuate between Five Minute Fridays and InstaFriday. But we are all community here, right? They can be combined into one post.
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.

Topic: Encouragement
 
"They've made me feel like a prisoner
They've made me feel set free
They've made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king"
 
This is from a sing a song at church that rings so true, it's called "Words" by Hawk Nelson.
Words can be our greatest encouragement or our greatest weapon.

 "They've lifted my heart
To places I'd never been
And they've dragged me down
Back to where I began

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out"
I want to be one that puts a fire in people's hearts. To teach through example to my child that words are meant to encourage and lift up. That the wrong words have a lasting effect. How many of us remember those words, words that still eat at our insides.

But what if we gave ourselves new words. Words that brought Truth and Life.
 
"Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

You can heal the heartache
Speak over the fear
  God, Your voice is the only thing
We need to hear"
 
This year my goal is to write more to get the stories out that are in my head. But to also speak words that heal heartache, speak over fear. Because it is scary to say the words, in a society that says criticism and lies are the norm, it takes courage to say words of encouragement. Words of His love.

 "I wanna speak Your love
Not just another noise
Oh, I wanna be Your light
I wanna be Your voice

 I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You"
 
Here is to a year of words.

The picture is from a class I am taking on SkillShare on hand-lettering. The quote I am working on says "We all have a Story to Tell".
