Why is It So Hard?

Monday, April 09, 2012

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!

Love and Blessings,

~ Judy ♡ ~

    My husband and I have no trouble telling each other "I love you!" Many years ago I decided it was important to say the words. I also make it a point to give compliments when they are appropriate... I know how good they make me feel, and I want others to feel that, too!

    Also, whenever someone gives me a compliment, I just say "Thank You so much" and don't say anything disparaging about what they complimented me on.

    Everything I own is a gift from God, and it can be gone just THAT quickly!

    Speaking words of hope, love, encouragement, blessing, building up....is a privilege I take seriously. We're commanded in the Word to do so...and yet as you say, sometimes I or others find it hard in the moment to just say those words. But as they become a way of life, I've found that it is very hard NOT to say them! ha!

    You are a giver of good words, Judy. Just sayin'. :)
