Thankful Thursday - Words

“Books are easily destroyed, but words will live as long as people can remember them." Tahereh Mafi.

Words....they're incredibly powerful. Words spoken and words not spoken. They have the power to tear apart and also, to build. Words can become a life raft, the one thing to hold onto, to stay afloat when life hits hard. 

"You can make it. I believe in you. I'm in your corner. We're in this together." 
Words - powerful, enriching, infused with love and faith. Words that rise above despair, and encourage hope...words to hold onto when there's nothing else.

I love's why I write. I have seen and felt how just a couple of words thrown together can help someone lift their head and trust again.

I'm grateful for words...words that have been given to me again and again by people in my world who care, so today, I want my words to reflect back faith and hope and love.

Happy Thursday, Guys.

You've been missed, Nikki. I too love words; edifying, loving, gentle, encouraging words. And as the old adage goes, "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all,"
is still true today. We live in a world that is filled with thoughtless people who think it is cool to speak their minds even when it is hurtful. It is so important to think before we speak. What would Jesus do? What would He say? As His children, we want to represent Him well by the words we speak and the words we write. Wonderful post, my friend. Enjoy your weekend.

So glad to see your post ...

I so agree "Words....they're incredibly powerful." No matter who has written it. Perhaps a mother to her child. A husband to wife. A poem or a story. Even a ceasefire or agreement - words can be and are so important. Let's keep writing and talking.

All the best Jan

This is so true, Nikki. Words wield a lot of power and can be used for both good and bad. The words you use here in your blog are definitely for good as they inspire and encourage others.

Words are like building blocks to me. And there are few things I enjoy more than watching how God puts them together in my writing. May He continue to help all of us be mindful of our words - whether spoken or written. May we use them wisely, for His glory.
