Words That Flow

Have you ever been in a situation where the words just flowed and every sentence was accurately descriptive? There is a Psalm that describes the Messiah in flowingly descriptive terms. Psalm 45 begins with this verse …

Psalm 45:1 ” My heart overflows with a good matter. I speak the things which I have made concerning the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

Now we don’t often think of our tongue as a pen, but how often do we spit venom or sing praises from our mouths. When we get on a “verbal” roll the words travel quickly from heart to mind to mouth. In our words, in our mouth, there is the power to build up or to tear down, the ability to inspire or to shatter dreams. We can just as quickly assassinate someone’s character as if we physically took their life. My prayer for the coming days is that we use the gift of speech and thought to encourage, uplift and bless those we come in contact with each day. Blessings on the New Year. Mike
