"The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, and a wise friend’s timely reprimand is like a gold ring slipped on your finger.”
(Proverbs 25:11-12 MSG)
I’m a lover of words.
I love the way they can bring a man to his knees and raise him back up in one simple sentence. I love the way they can stoke a fire into a wild rage and snuff it out with one gentle breath. I love the way they can snag a heart in a fearsome assembly of pain and ignite a melody of giggles in a single line. I love the way the Creator used words to stitch together the beauty of ashes and rain down a storm of roaring love.
I believe in the power of words.
I believe that words are like the character of God, so vast and beautiful that our brains cannot contain all of them. I believe that our lips hold tsunamis and our tongues carry thunder. I believe that words are a gift, and that we need to graciously give and give and continue to give them freely.
Here are my words, handed to you like a treasure. Here are my words, given to you laced in love. Here are my words, a resounding echo of hope between each syllable.
Are they like honey to your soul, like fine jewelry on your finger?
I pray that they are, and I pray that they bring healing...and many laughs ;)
Let's use our arsenal of words to kick some devil's butt, yeah?
