You Are What You Speak

You've heard people say you are what you eat well my philosophy is you are what you speak.

I spoke to a person this week that really got me thinking. This person went on and on about how sick they were naming all their illness's. How they had been sick for several years and they couldn't seem to figure it out.

I realized this person was destroying themselves. They were consumed by how they felt. They didn't have one positive word to say about their self until I added a few of my own. Their mind had become a gun and their words the bullets.

I don't say this lightly. I've went through the same thing but it was only after I stopped talking about how I felt and began talking positive that my world began to change.

I remember the old saying, "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." Actually that's a crock. (:0) Yes sticks and stones will break our bones but words can destroy our soul which in turn will destroy our body.

What we think comes out in our attitude and our words. What we speak happens. It's like a self fullfilled prophesy. I don't mean this to sound crazy like if I go out and say to my old 1999 Grand Am start and it will start but we first think it and then we do it. I'm thinking I need to go out and start my car and then I go and use the key to start it.

What happens to the person who is told all their life they are dumb or ugly? Even though that may not be true it gets embedded into them. Just as the person who is told they are smart and beautiful.

We can make a life or break a life with our words. It's time to take some serious consideration as to what we are thinking and saying each day.

We need to remember the example of our Father. He spoke the world into existence. He used His words to create life. We too can speak our world into existence and create a better life.

God tells us to think about things that are good and pure. He told us that because He knew it would nurture our souls. In turn we would be happier and healthier... Creating change in the world around us.

I don't know about you but I'm tired of all the negativity in this world. I certainly don't want to add to the pile any longer. The darkness in this world is up to our necks. We are mired in it but we can still speak. When we speak out all the things God told us to think on I know the darkness will begin to recede. We will slowly be free and able to walk in the light.

And as I've told you many times I'm all for the light. How about you? (:0)

Until We Meet Again.......God Bless
