Sticks and Stones

Hey there Wholetonians!
When I was little, one of the popular rhymes was “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” For years, because of my age and repetition, I bought into this rhyme as truth. Often, we are lulled into the belief that words have little impact upon our lives. However, the Bible tells us, “The power of life and death is in the tongue.” With that being said, our words obviously pack quite a punch!
Can you remember a time when someone you trusted said something cutting and degrading to your face? What happened next? How long did those words have an effect on your life? Believe it or not, one hurtful word spoken at a time of great vulnerability can stick with you and ruin your life! Think about it. If you had a physical injury, you would probably recover within weeks or months. Yet one venomous, calculated word shot from the arrow of someone’s insecurity could maim you for life. Here is a scripture that brings it home: Proverbs 12:18 “There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Please consider the awesome power of man’s tongue! James 3:6, The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one's life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. Once you see the possibilities for evil, wouldn’t you want to speak life to others instead? My point here is obvious: what you say is what you get. You can’t fool frequencies; they can only create what they are! If you speak blessings over your life, you’ll live a blessed life. Likewise, if you curse your life, you’ll live a cursed life!
Both good and evil are comprised of a frequency. How will you set the tone for your life … your friends … your family? As for me and my house, the answer is simple. We speak life and those of you who do the same will experience this: Psalm 23:6, “Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of understanding just one key truth—everything is frequency and has a resonant frequency. Once you understand this, life is beautiful!
Until next time…
