The Awesome Power of Words

I wrote this poem one day when I was thinking about the awesome power there is in the words that we continually speak. You actually create the atmosphere in which you live and can frame your world with your words. Words spoken continually 'create' what you declare - over your life, your circumstances, your health and your future.

Proverbs 16:24 says, 'Excellent words are like delicacies to your soul and healing to your body.'

Proverbs 10:11 says, The mouth of a righteous person is a virtual fountain of life.'

Proverbs 18:21 says, 'The power of life and death is in the tongue.'

The Power in Words

There's power in words to kill and destroy

They're dangerous weapons - not just a toy

There's power in your words to heal and bring life

They can usher in peace and dissipate strife

Words stir your heart and can lift you above

The fears and the doubts and inspire you to love

Words are creative - for you'll have what you say

Your words frame your world, at the end of the day

God's words are true, they're alive, full of power

They are constant, unchanging, every day, every hour

God stands by His Word, for it's backed by His Name

And He'll never forsake you - He is always the same.
