Now that the example has been demonstrated, I want you to think about your own life. Think about the things you think and say to yourself daily. Think about the things you say to your children, or maybe even your spouse. Are you speaking words over your life that will create or destroy? Do you tell yourself that you are beautiful, strong, capable and healthy? Or do you complain about your health, put yourself down and doubt yourself and your abilities? Do you speak words of encouragement and love to your children, or do you curse at them, call them names and verbally set them up for failure? How about your spouse? Do you tell him how much you love him and how much he means to you? Do you tell him he is appreciated and express your support of his dreams? Or do you tear him down, call him names, curse and carry on, spewing venom that cannot be taken back?
That is exactly what negative words are. They are like a poisonous venom that kills relationships and the hopes, dreams, self-esteem and love of those closest to us and even ourselves. This is why we must be extremely careful to be mindful of the words we speak over our lives. As women we are very powerful and we are the center and foundation of our families. A woman has the power to speak life into herself, her husband and her children. A woman also has the power to speak destruction in those very same lives.
Analyze your life closely and start paying attention to the words you speak and think. Do you plant seeds that produce life with your words or do you spew words of venom that destroy the lives of those around you? Whatever you come up with, remember that the choice is yours as are the consequences. Also remember that it is never too late to make changes for the better. Some of us aren't even aware of the damage that words cause. Some of us may not have been raised in an environment where positive words were spoken over us. However, that's OK, because in life bad experiences can teach us what not to do. So it's not too late. Start speaking words of victory, hope, love and encouragement over yourself and your loved ones. Do it often until it no longer becomes a conscious effort. Then watch what happens! Your life will slowly start to transform before your very eyes.
