The Words We Speak Can Destroy Or E
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Words We Say Can Destroy or Encourage Others!


“Sticks and stones my break my bones.”

  “But words can’t hurt me!”

I’m sure you’ve heard this before. 

Please listen to me!


The words we say, and the conversations

that we’ve spoken.

Can help to strengthen another,

 or cause a life to be broken!


Our words can hurt or heal…

 Scripture clearly reminds us!

Do we place a guard over our mouth?

 Can others trust us?


The Bible says to speak on what’s

 wholesome and kind!

We need to think of what we say from a Godly mind!


I pray that Jesus will help us,

in the words we say!

May the conversations we speak,

 brighten someone’s day!


Please come Lord Jesus! 

And touch our tongues with fire!

I pray that being a daily example of Christ,

will be our desire!


May we speak wholesomeness to those around us!

I pray that the love of Christ

be what always binds us!


In what we say and do...  May the will of God be completed!

God brings the victory!

 The enemy’s been defeated!

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!
