Why is it so easy to say what we think and feel to people about our government, world situations, life in general, but when it comes to telling those close to us how we feel about them it’s practically impossible? Maybe we came from a family who didn’t know how to show their feelings or express how they felt. Maybe we are afraid of looking foolish or being hurt or humiliated!
We need to take some lessons from children! They will look at you and unexpectedly say, “I love you”, “You are pretty” or “You’re my friend”! The Word of God says ‘out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks’ Matthew 12:34, so why is it so hard to say, “I love you”; “I need you”; “You mean every thing to me”; “You are my best friend” or “You are Pretty” or “You are Handsome”?
Words are so important! Words set things into motion! They direct our lives. They can be sweet, gentle, happy, encouraging or they can be cruel, hateful, hurtful, belittling! Words spoken can be comforting and endearing years and years after spoken into our lives or they can still bring feelings of hurt! Words can never be taken back and they are never forgotten.
Time is passing by faster and faster, so don’t wait until it is too late! Start today to let your feelings toward loved ones show and out of the abundance of your heart let your mouth speak!
Have an Abundantly Blessed Life!
