Offense

Easily Offended

No, not the opposite of defense. Offense…as in, taking offense to something.

Many of us do too much of this and our level of joy suffers as a result. Same for those around us in many cases.

‘Offense is like a spiritual hangnail. It’s like having a hangnail in your spirit.’
-Joyce Meyer

The good news is, this doesn’t have to be a permanent problem. Check out this message:

I enjoyed this message when I listened to it the other day. Hope it was helpful for you in some way. Have a great day everyone!

Words

Words

‘With a few kind words, you can change a person’s life.’
-Joyce Meyer (video)

So true…but at the same time, it is also true when you substitute the word ‘kind’ with ‘hurtful’.

Our words have power. Plain and simple. Harnessing them so we are speaking joy and love into others’ lives instead of pain and hurt is not an easy task, but it’s a very important one.

Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m a work in progress with this.

Ask God today for the strength to speak words of life, not words of death. It’s not something we can control on our own…no matter how skilled we are at communicating.

Speak life into those you encounter today. As the quote at the top says, you can change their life – and for the better, if the words you say are with love.

Have a great day!

Confidence & Peace

‘If you’re not at peace with yourself then you’re not gonna find peace, no matter what you do in any area of life.’
-Joyce Meyer

Truth.

Here’s a great message about building a ‘confidence habit’ and choosing peace for your life instead of worry and self-pity.

Have a good day!

Release Your Faith

‘God’s got a timetable and He doesn’t discuss it with me. All I know is I’m praying and saying and doing. I’m going to do my very best to do what I believe God’s asking me to do, and whatever the results are is up to Him.’
-Joyce Meyer

This is a great message that I’d encourage anyone to listen to. It really spoke to me this morning.

Have a great day and expect good things to happen in your life!
