The Power of The Tongue: Are You Speaking Life or Death?

Are You Speaking Life or Death?

And by death I don’t neccesarily mean a physical death. It could be a death of a relationship, a career, a goal etc.

Are you a “Negative Nancy” or a “Positive Polly” ?

Being positive is a choice you make every day from the moment you wake up.  Some people are so negative, they don’t even recognize a blessing when it’s presented to them. 

You either look at your circumstance as an opportunity for growth or way to damnation.  You either accept defeat as your destiny or see it as a learning curve and make it your foundation to start over.

You either see your roadblock as a stumbling block or a stepping stone.  It all depends on how you view it.

The choices you make from the time you start the day shape your day and your life ultimately.

If you declare every day that surely goodness and mercy follows you all the days of your life, eventually you will start to look for life’s little blessings because that’s what you are expecting.

If you declare every day that you are worthless, you amount to nothing and you are a waste of space, then eventually you start to believe yourself. The same works in the reverse. If you declare victory, you are more than enough, and you have a unique gift to share with the world, eventually you will start to believe this also. 

For things happen twice, first in our minds and second in reality.

Things may not always go our way.  Disasters, heartbreaks, losses, and accidents happen.  They are inevitably parts of our lives.  But they are not the totality of life.  They do not define your destiny.  They don’t mean you are living a cursed life.  You can always learn from them and with God’s help, turn things around.  

You either speak life or death according to the words you speak, the beliefs you declare, and the things you do. 

So, Are You Speaking Life or Death?
