]I believe that there is power in words. One Bible verse says that life and death are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).

That’s why dad always exhorted me to use positive words to encourage other people. They motivate like nothing else.

But dad also said that mere words are not enough. He said that love is a verb.

Love is what you do.

It’s important to use positive words to encourage others. It’s even more imperative to express love with your actions. It’s love with skin on. It’s what God did when he became one of us in Jesus.

And when you love with words and deeds, the object of your love experiences love in its fullness.

That’s how my dad loved mom and us kids.

Amen Brother and your Dad was a wise man!!

Now then Dave with what you have spoken about words begin to examine Every Word Spoken for they either work for us or against us.

I understand this thread is based on Love and that is good because everything depends on Love in the Kingdom of God.

I am only talking an opportunity to bring to Light Our Words.

We can pray a powerful prayer fully empowered with Faith and 15 minutes begin to release words that are working against our prayers.

Beautiful Post Brother and I wish more people could experience a family life such as you spoke of.

Blessings and Love in Christ

Amen brother

Words often come from the tongue, but should come from the heart.

Words can cut us up if from the tongue, but embrace us if from the heart.

If 'Words are all I have' let them be like God's Word's to us and touch another's heart.

Smile an everlasting smile
A smile can bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you gone
'Cause that would bring a tear to me
This world has lost his glory
Let's start a brand new story
now , my love
Right now , there'll be no other time
And I can show you how
My love

Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I'm here if you should call to me
You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say
It's only words

And words are all I have
To take your heart away
