From Lisa: Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our own lives, our own struggles, our own hurts that we cannot seem to see our way out of the muck. We are in such need of the support of others that we become clingy and begin to sink. It is at times like this that I am reminded of the power of speaking life into others.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of building others up with words of encouragement. Helping them see what they are doing right, what an impact they have on others. Letting them know that they are on your mind and in your heart. It’s like the feeling you get when you revamp your resume. You know, when you start piecing together your accomplishments and realize all of your own goodness.
The neat part about it is that you too will start to feel happy within yourself. Building others up has a positive influence on your own self-worth. The words resonate within your soul, reminding you of your goodness, your purpose. In the words of singer, Toby Mac:
Yo it’s crazy, amazing
We can turn our heart through the words we say
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Hope can live or die So let’s give it a try this week. Let’s Speak Life!
