In the beginning was the word and the word was, with God and the word was GOD!
The word of God is powerful and effective, the Bible warns us to not curse with the same mouth that we are meant to speak blessings with ………….but of course,---LOL--- you can wake up daily to CURSE the devil and his agents for the catastrophe that they have unleashed on mankind and the Earth for he is an enemy of God!
It is common place to speak out blasphemous and dirty words in our world of today, some say it is out of frustrated feelings of uncertainty and confusion.
In so many cases people are complacent about the obvious effect of the words that they have just spoken to another in anger or simply out of jealousy and envy………all boils down to deep feelings of FRUSTRATION for whatever reason.
Selfishness and total disregard for other people’s feelings make one person speak out disrespectful, even curse words to hurt his fellow human; friend or foe (even to an outright stranger on the streets and within a community like this……FAITH writers!).
The Bible says, “if you call your brother A FOOL you are liable of death”
Often times the people that are at the receiving end of bad, hateful and hurtful words are THOSE WHO ARE CLOSEST TO US! THOSE WE CLAIM TO LOVE!
Those on the supposed list of loved ones that we relate with regularly and on a daily basis are Biological family members, Church family (If such a thing exists these days - though the Bible states it clearly) friends, spouse, children….. Etc.
When words are SPAT out in furious rage, like an egg, words are very delicate; when hurled at the ground in anger, the shell breaks into many fragmented parts and the precious yoke of life spills, this egg can NEVER be repaired to be the same again, except by God’s miraculous intervention!
Like job’s friends sometimes the people closest to a person are the easiest to distract and derail that person from achieving destined purpose in life because they become strongholds and vessels of confusion and regular discouragement; except by ‘being’ deaf and with God’s grace can you achieve good success in the company that you were born into, grew up with or even married into.
Good words are like honey and a balm, sweet,encouraging and soothing with an intention to lift up, revive, restore and induce growth.
The extension below was sent to me as Email, I share it with you and my prayer is that the full meaning and effect shall engulf and encapsulate you in the mighty name of Jesus.

A group of frogs was traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit.
All the other frogs gathered around the pit.
When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the unfortunate frogs they
would never get out.
The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit.
The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.
Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and
simply gave up. He fell down and died.
The second frog continued to jump as hard as he could.
Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and suffering and just die.
He jumped even harder and finally made it out.
When he got out, the other frogs asked him, "Why did you continue jumping?
Didn't you hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He
thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
This story teaches two lessons:
There is power of life and death in the tongue.
An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.
A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them.
Be careful of what you say.
Speak life to those who you come across on life’s path.
The power of words....it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way.
Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times.
Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.
MAY YOUR WORDS BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE TODAY.
