Today’s Words of Wisdom: Word’s Matter…

I have not posted for what feels like ages as my life has been non-stop chaos.  However, today there is a message in my spirit that I must share.  I receive daily inspirational words from a friend.  Today’s message on the words we use hit home.  For some time now I have been working on my ability to speak faith-filled messages all of the time, no matter the audience or circumstance.  My truth: I am a very direct person that struggles, from time to time, with not saying exactly what I think or how I feel unless I do not trust the person- then I rarely say what I really think or feel.

A praise post I received from a friend crafted by Ted Lucas, @TedLucasSNSCEO, was a perfect message to remind me how important it is to use words wisely.  I hope his words can inspire you as well…

TODAY’S WORD

God created the heavens and the earth and everything that is in the earth by His words (Heb. 11:3). The whole creation was made by, and responds to, words. Our words, when spoken in faith, release either life or death (Prov. 18:21) and will affect people, things, and circumstances. We can release the power that is in faith by our words.

Every word counts. There is no such things as an “idle” word which will not work for us or against us. Our words can be our most powerful weapon against the devil, or they can become a snare of the devil (Prov. 6:2). Faith-filled words can move mountains.

The faith that made Jesus marvel was a faith in the authority of the spoken word (Mt. 8:8, 10). We are to believe in the power of our words. If we begin to speak words in faith that line up with God’s Word, then we will have the positive results that follow. But if we continue to speak words of doubt, we will eventually believe them and have the negative things that these words produce. Death or life are in the power of every word we speak.

Faith is released by speaking words. Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains or to whatever our problem might be. Most people speak to God about their problem, but few follow Jesus’ instructions and speak directly to the “mountain.” God has put certain things under our authority and we must exercise it. When a problem stands in our way, we must speak to the problem and command it to get out of our way in the name of Jesus. Speak God’s Word today. His Words will produce life.

@shaunking: Her name is Heather Heyer - an American martyr in the modern Civil Rights Movement. Her last words on Facebook were "if you're not outraged you're not paying attention." She is a hero. My hero.

She was not murdered by an immigrant or refugee or Muslim or Black man, but by a white supremacist. #ResistenceTools #Eracism #Activist #HeatherHeyer #RIP #Charlottesville "We, the members of the @uflorida - Association of Black Alumni, vehemently oppose white supremacist, Richard Spencer, speaking at UF on September 12 or any day before or after." Please read our official statement below. We encourage all of our alumni to take action. 
Please share and take action today and every day until this is stopped! #GoGators #UFAlumni cc: @ufblackalumni @ufabadc @uf_bsu @lambdapsidivas I appreciate all non-POC that are standing, or want to stand, with POC, really I do.  I love and appreciate each and everyone of you, I care about getting to know, fighting for and supporting all of you (the full self) just like I want you to do for me (the whole person with all of my salient identities). However, today, and going forward, we need you to do more.  We need you to be a brave and active bystander, interruptor, and champion.  We need you to use your platform/privilege to challenge and educate.  What does this mean, it means using your voice to challenge the normative behaviors and assumptions that perpetuate a narrative: that POC are less than, when POC are the butt of jokes shared with or around you while POC are not present, that POC deserve what is or has happened to them because we didn't act/behave in what ever way deemed "appropriate", that only POC have unfairly received a coveted opportunity because standards were lowered or some arbitrary quota was created, that POC are the only ones benefitting from public services and/or public access policies, etc.  If you are in a space where a false narrative about POC is being shared, use that opportunity to speak up-- your voice will travel much further and faster than ours.  There's no more time to sit idly by-- POC are the victims in systemic racism and oppression; it was intentionally created by your ancestors, however hard that may be to accept, and so it must be actively dismantled by you.  Wishing, hoping, praying, ignoring or proclaiming "racism" is a thing of the past will not end racism.  Educating yourself and becoming conscious about all the ways that racism impacts POC and our greater society,  and then actively dismantling is what will end systemic oppression.  Wake up and then "stay woke"! #AllyResponsibility #EradicateRacism #Activism #StayWoke Happy FriYAY!  Stay focused and keep the faith, so you can shine when it's your time! #Qotd #affirmations #selflove Perusing through the archives... Flashback to Homecoming senior year.  Shout out to all my fellow Hillsborough High School alumni. #GoBigRed #Terriers Today's #ResistenceTool: honor your wins.  When you are starting to feel worn down in the endless battle, a little bit of encouragement, gratitude and/or praise may be just what you need to press on.  Appreciation may not always come, so start a gratitude file to review when you need it most. Add notes from others as well as notes of self-love. #WordsofThanks #Gratitude #ResistenceTools #Motivation
