Every word that is spoken
Has tremendous power indeed;
It brings forth either life or death
As in our heart it becomes a seed.
It will reap a harvest over time
As the soil in our soul,
Is watered and is nurtured
And its fruit will thus unfold.
If our words are true and honest
They’ll bring life to everyone,
But if they’re arrows filled with poison
Much pain and harm is done.
The Lord has given us free will
To make choices every day,
And depending what we feed our thoughts
Will determine what we display.
So do the words we speak exhibit hope
Or do they bring our flesh disease?
Since life and death is in the tongue
We determine our destiny.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. Proverbs 18:21
“A fool’s mouth is like destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul”.
“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones”. Proverbs 16:24
“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the wellness of wisdom is a flowing brook”. Proverbs 18:4
