Word choice matters

Your lingo leads your life. Choose to use uplifting lingo! It’s hard to build a positive life with a negative vocabulary. Bad words don’t produce good outcomes.

Your feelings follow the verbiage you daily use and consume. Volatile verbiage creates volatility. Serene verbiage will lead you to serenity.

All lingo matters. Some is helpful, some harmful; but every word that you think, read, say, or hear has an impact on your life.

Embrace the terminology of hope and practical optimism! The terminology of discouragement traps people in despair. However, if you build your life on a virtuous vocabulary; guilt & shame lose their power.

If you don’t consciously choose to use uplifting terminology; negative words will capture your mind and heart. Fill yourself with life-changing lingo, victorious verbiage, & transformational terminology. Read the Bible everyday!

The words you think & say lead to attitudes that lead to actions. Choose them wisely. Thousands of thousands of words have molded who you are, one word at a time.

Be an enthusiasts for encouraging, uplifting words. Talk ’em up! Humanity suffers from a failure to communicate; 1) encouragement, 2) transformation through Christ, & 3) heart-felt love.

Hurtful words: once said, always said. They can’t be erased or intentionally forgotten. Only forgiven. You will live out in your daily life, the words that you continually think, say, & hear.

Christ-pleasing words are transformational. To let Jesus edit our words before we say them, would solve many problems. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up.”
–Ephesians 4:29

We’re called to conform our desires & our words to the will of God, not the other way around. Outward illusions can never compensate for lack of inner peace.

It’s beautiful when people come together in enjoyment & inspiration of the Holy Spirit & the words that the Spirit inspired in the Bible.

People who regularly lie spin deceptions that keep them out of touch with the real world. Faith helps people face real world reality with honesty, humility, and hope.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
