‘Sticks and stones only break your bones, but words can tear your heart out’


Maybe those words come from inside you? We so easily hear an inner voice calling us evil, bad, rotten, worthless, useless, unlovable …

In the Bible are stories about a God who loves to speak good words to us. Words that bless. Words that create good new things in our lives.

Here’s ONE thing you can do this week. Create space for more good words in your life. Listen to the words of blessing God has for you. Find a way to speak words that encourage and bless someone else.

Read the story in Mark 1v9-11. Can you imagine God speaking those words over you? What would that feel like?
