Verses About the Power of Our Words

“We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.” James 3:2

Just take that in for a moment. “God’s Word says that if we tame our words, we can tame our body and mind. That’s powerful.” Tim Cameron

I don’t know about you, but I need that kind of taming. I’ve been on a journey to change my mindset and I’m learning about how powerful my thoughts are…but also how powerful my words are! I want to speak life and rid my life of the toxic words I have spoken for so many years. Toxic words of judgement, criticism, sarcasm, complaining and negativity. I am learning that I can be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of my mind! Praise God!

In his book, The Forty Day Word Fast, Tim Cameron shares that if we can get our words under control, “we move from what is true to the truth, from the seen to the unseen, from the physical to the spiritual, from the negative to the hopeful. We will quit living in the past, allowing our failures, mistakes and sin to paint our identity with hopelessness. We will move into God’s intentions and promises for us. We will see God’s kingdom come to earth in our midst.”

I want that, don’t you??

Join me as we go through this book, The Forty Day Word Fast, during the month of May. I will be doing roughly 1 video per week on my facebook page. You can join in or watch later at your convenience. (I will not have a schedule but typically my videos are mid-morning. I will try to post ahead of time with what time I will be going live!)

As we read the book,  I also encourage you to read at least 1-2 of these verses daily. Read them, write them, pray them, meditate upon the truth found in them.

  1. This e-mail came to me at the perfect time – my BFF & I got into a horrible fight the day before yesterday – she’s going through a terrible time in her life & has very few people to rely on so when something comes up that makes what she’s going through even harder I’m the one she goes to – this should be an honor right?! Well the thing is it’s very hard on me also because I am the only one she goes to & lately she’s needed me a lot – to make a long long story short – one of those times came up a couple days ago & it just happened to be a day that I was not feeling well (unfortunately that’s alota days for me – I have chrons disease & degenerative & chronic issues w/my spine) & I didn’t feel like talking so I didn’t call her back as promised & when she called me on it – which she did by calling & calling & txting & txting – which she does alot but she is really going through horrible horrible stuff right now – anyway I got really really mad & to be honest my reaction to her “neediness” was not Christian or Godlike in anyway – I yelled & said things I shouldn’t have & I guess this was a final straw – she asked me to apologize in such a way that I felt was asking way too much of me – so I refused & now our friendship is at stake – according to her it’s over but to be honest I’m not ready to let it go – you see her daughter is my Goddaughter & this time she sided with her mom (as she should have) & wants nothing to do with me! There’s SO MUCH more to this but I don’t want to take up a whole page! Frankly I feel horrible but honestly I also don’t know if I’m capable of being & giving back as much as she needs me to! I was beginning to feel bad about my reaction but after reading your e-mail I feel devestated about losing her & my Goddaughter – I need your prayers & if you could? Maybe some words of wisdom??? (One more thing – I’ve moved recently to FL from VA (where she is) so that was another thing that has been a burden on her – she was devastated that I moved!
