The Power of Words

The Power of Words
“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” –  Proverbs 12:25
After sharing about some recent struggles with a good friend of mine, he shared this encouragement: “Worry never robs tomorrow of it’s sorrow, but only saps today of it’s joy.”  Quickly, I was reminded of how many times I have allowed things like worry and doubt to effect my daily joy.The Bible tells us that “Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”(Proverbs 16:24)  It also tells us that our words can be a source of grace for those who hear (Ephesians 4:29).I am encouraged by the opportunity that we have to uplift, restore and even be an extension of God’s amazing grace to each other.
