Words are so powerful they should only be used to…

After a small break, I’m back to writing!  A few have mentioned to me, “Okay, Sarah, when are you going to write again?  I’m ready to read a new post!”  Well, today I’m ready to share again.  Here’s why…

Last week, an amazing quote was written on the dry erase board of the office where I work.  “Mark Twain once said, ‘I’m sorry I didn’t have the time to write you a short letter, so I wrote you a long note instead.'”  These are the words that stopped me and left me completely still.  After all, never before had I thought about a short letter taking more time to write than a longer one.  I had never thought of words this way: each as a powerful unit of communication that should be carefully considered and put together before being said or written.

So I took a week or so to think, to gather words but only to think on them before writing, and here’s what I came up with.

“Words are so powerful that they should only be used

to bless, to heal, and

to prosper.”

Sue Henry, a wonderfully wise woman once said these words, and they are just as true today as they ever have been.

Jesus Christ used the power of words, God’s Word, when caring for the church.  Ephesians 5 reminds us of this where it is written:

“…Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by THE WASHING OF WATER WITH THE WORD, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”  Ephesians 5:25-27

Today, be blessed, be healed, and prosper in being washed with the living water of the Word.

Praying your day is filled with Sonshine,

Sarah 🙂

  1. The quote,
    “Words are so powerful that they should only be used
    to bless, to heal, and
    to prosper”
    reminds me of The No Cussing Club at nocussingclub.com and of personal inspiration I received about 15 years ago but which I am still trying to live up to. And then there are words in the New Testament about what our speech should be like, words that this quote pretty much sums up.

    Thank you for the quote. And just as much, thanks for coming back.
