Let's Speak Words That Build Each O

Let’s Speak Words That

Build Others Up!


If I were to stop by

 for a visitation.

What would be the words

 of our conversation?


It could be about

the events of the day.

I'm sure there would

be plenty to say.


As we talk and focus

our attention.

May our words be tuned

 to a godly direction.


Would our speech 

 bring God praise?

Even after we go our

different ways?


Would our lives

 be refreshed?

Or would gossip on our

lips be confessed?


I pray that as each day

passes us on by.

We'd speak with words

That would edify!


May our conversation

 be blessed and sweet.

As we lay our every

 burden at Jesus' feet.


May we be watchful

of the way we're living.

And find in Christ... 

words worth giving!

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!
