Thankful Thursdays

For words that save.

Have you thought about the words you use the most? I think most of us just blah, blah, blah for the most part, not really giving it much thought. At least not until later. But, some words are lifting, while others are sinking, and whether alone or linked together, their meaning and effect can make us or break us. Because they have great power, no word is ever inconsequential. So words matter, undoubtedly, and our vocabulary speaks volumes about our mindset, as it echoes the good, the bad, and the ugly inside us.

While putting this post together, I was reminded of words that have the power to save and transform, and I am thankful the most for those. Here’s a bunch of them:

I believe in you.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Thy will be done.
Nunca ha llovido que no haya escampado.
You got this.
I’m sorry.
Let go and let God.
I’m proud of you.
I Love you.

What words do you bank in your vocabulary? What kind of statements do they make? Family and friends, may God always give us the clarity to think the right words, and the wisdom to choose the right time to use them.

What are you thankful for today?

Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.

“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.”
-P. Rothfuss

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
-John 1:1

“Be careful of the words you say,
Keep them short and sweet.
You never know, from day to day,
Which ones you’ll have to eat.”
