The Power of Words

Words are very powerful and can change one's life for good.  I love to take a positive 'WORD' and break down its meaning and ponder what it really stands for.  I find a lot of strength in words...both the spoken and the written word.  Words have such a strong impact on each of us - (whether it be a negative or a positive word, it does influence us.)

PEACE ~ A state of tranquility; a freedom from disturbance
WISDOM ~ The exercise of sound judgement, discerning between truth and error
PATIENCE ~ The quality of bearing offenses without anger or revenge; trusting the timetable of the Lord
UNDERSTANDING ~ Exact comprehension, intelligence between two or more persons
HOPE ~ To place confidence in, with the belief that it will be obtained
CREATE ~ To organize, to bestow intelligence upon

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite videos regarding WORDS and the power they behold!

I hope you're inspired like I am each time I watch these.  I am issuing a challenge to you and myself to use good, positive, and uplifting words when talking with others, especially our loved ones.  The things we say each day can be uplifting and inspiring or belittling and degrading.

SO...What Choice of Words will you use today?

JOHN 1:1-5
 aIn the bbeginning was the Word, and the cWord was with God, and the dWord was eGod.

 All things were amade by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 In him was alife; and the life was the blight of men.

 And the alight shineth in bdarkness; and the darkness ccomprehended it not.

Have an awesome week!

Jesus Declares the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

In a world full of confusion and temptations, we are living during the fulfillment of this prophecy, (the parable of the wheat and the tares)...A separation is currently happening between Christ's true followers and the wicked who follow the ways of this world.

Modern day prophets have counseled and warned us to live in the world but be not a part of its ways.  This is sound advice if we want to be amongst the wheat and stay safe on the Lord's side.  I am grateful for my knowledge and testimony of Christ's restored church and gospel upon the earth in this last dispensation before He returns.

Matthew 13:36-43

36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  • Doctrine and Covenants 86:7

    Therefore, let the wheat and the tares grow together until the harvest is fully ripe; then ye shall first gather out the wheat from among the tares, and after the gathering of the wheat, behold and lo, the tares are bound in bundles, and the field remaineth to be burned.
