Let's Watch What WE Say!

Let’s Speak Words Of Life and Encouragement!


Many don’t use words that build up,

but words that destroy.

The blessings of God’s forgiveness,

 they will never be enjoyed.


The Bible has a plan for how we’re

 to live, act and speak.

Harsh words void God’s word and

make a person weak.


Angry or harsh words that are

often hastily broken.

Can leave a fellow brother’s heart

feel “tossed and broken.”


We need to conduct ourselves with

 scripture in mind.

Let’s pay close attention to Ephesians 4:29.


We’ll all stand before God one day

 and give an account.

How we live and the words we choose

will one day count!


Let’s humble yourself before the

Lord God almighty

Let’s seek his way of living, whether

 you’re 12 or 90!


Speaking words of life and encouragement

 is the key!

If we want to walk in Christ’ love

 so abundantly!


By Jim Pemberton   


Eph. 429 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
