What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words. Proverbs 18:21 (Good News Translation)
I am a firm believer of being careful of the words that I speak. I choose to speak life over myself, family, friends, church, business, work environment, etc. Our words have power! When I say the words “I am”, my focus it to make sure that the words are positive and reflect how God sees me.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
