Healing Words

Just a verse and thought for today that I received

this morning and well, it matters to this girls heart.

It might matter to you too.

I often think that we can crush or bring light to a soul with one word. I have felt or given words that contain both. We can listen and give wings or judge, or be selfish and cause lifetime damage. The choice is ours to be lifter of souls.

Praying with all of me to be not just a glass half full, but over flowing with solid immovable joy to give to another and allow God to shine it back to my soul.

To be someone that beyond any of my circumstances can make someone feel like they can fly. That is my prayer for you today. That you feel sunshine through your soul...and that today you feel free to fly and be amazing!



"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing"
(Proverbs 12:18, NIV)


The Bible tells us that life and death are in the power of our words. We can use our words to build people up and encourage them, or we can just as easily bring destruction with our words.

When we use our words to bring healing, the Bible says that we are wise. Choose to be wise today and choose healing words. Look for the best in others and build them up. Choose healing words over gossip; choose words of freedom and peace over anger and judgment. Let your words encourage the people in your life by speaking strength, hope and victory.

Remember, words are seeds. When you use your words to bring healing, you'll reap a harvest of health, strength and life in return. As you are faithful with your words, God will increase your influence. He will increase His favor and blessing upon you and lead you in the good life He has prepared for you.


Father in heaven, today I choose to be wise and bring healing to others with my words. I ask for an increase of Your power and ability in my life so that I can live to honor You in all I do. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

ps. I love the humor in this small outburst by Jezus:
"Zacheus, kom vlug uit die boom ! Want ik moet vandaag in uw huis zijn ! "
Lukas 19:5
( simple translation from dutch by myself would be : Zacheus, get out of that tree full speed, man..Because today I need to visit your home !"
