In the darkness of early morning I curled into my "meet with Jesus" chair and asked what he would like to speak to me. Journal open, this is what He shared:
There is great power in words and I have gifted you with the ability to use them well. Let this be a year of words spoken (with your lips or your pen) on purpose.
Do not entertain idle words but let them fall away silent.
Run from gossip and words of hate, discord and destruction. Even words of correction will build up - not tear down.
I have set before you life and death - now - choose life.
In the ever thickening darkness, choose light.
And in all things - choose Me!
Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! Deuteronomy 30:19 NLT
