“Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips.”
From time to time we do get out of harmony with the Lord, and that causes us to be out of harmony with others. Thus, if you are still having trouble making peace and coming to the point that you feel good about edifying those around you then take notice of this once again. The words you speak have great power to what happens in your life. Your words have the power to bless and encourage others, or make bring them down.
Not paying attention to your self talk (how you are talking to yourself), and not thinking about what you say to other people can greatly hold you back in life. Your words are life giving! Your words can speak health and abundance into being…or it can keep you from fullness of life!
Thus, take your words and return to the Lord like this verse says. You can do this at any time and under any situation! Your lips offer up fruit when you speak to God, when you affirm his promises, when you uplift someone else! Your lips can speak blessings and goodness out to the world! Give thanks to the Lord as often as possible and ask for forgiveness as needed!
LORD FORGIVE MY SINS AND RECEIVE ME GRACIOUSLY, THAT I MAY OFFER THE FRUIT OF MY LIPS TO BRING LIFE, LOVE, PEACE, BLESSING AND GOODNESS TO MYSELF AND THOSE AROUND ME!
*Meditate, pray or affirm the words in BOLD or that are highlighted! Look for short daily messages from me to spread seeds of hope, encouragement, and expansion of your mind, body and spirit daily!
