Love is patient,
Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
But rejoices in truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always perseveres, Love never fails.
So, today my post will be about words. First...the word WORD!
1. A greeting.
2. Another way to say, Yeah! or Damn Right!
YES, so this is cool huh? You use the word, word to express something. Something positive and hopeful.
But then there are the real words. The words you hear everyday that may or may not be so positive and hopeful. And thats OK! Thats the beauty of the written and spoken word!
Unfortunately, i'm one of those people who takes words way too literally! If something is said to me, in good faith, i tend to believe. I do, so shoot me! 2PM means 2PM, not 3.30PM. Of course, i know and realize that things happen in life that may hinder the word. Thats ok and i can accept that. What i cannot accept is when words are used in a hurtful manner. I don't like that at all.
It becomes sad when you have to pick and choose the words that you use. Wouldn't it be cool if, when the words come to you, you can say them and not hurt another living being??? Say only the good words. Don't use words like hate, kill, die, loathe, inconvenience, hostility, obnoxious, loathing, detest, evil, wicked, nasty, vindictive, cruel, mean or malicious!
These words exsist and yes they are used. But, they are not used by me and probably never will be. I know how hurtful they can be to others so i stay away.
There are many ways to say things to others. Hey dude, i love you! I use this term freely. I love freely. Love, as stated above, is kind. It rejoices in truth, it protects and never fails. WORD UP!!!
This weekend, among other things...i learned about the power of WORDS. I feel enlighted and so full of hope. I feel very happy. I've come to certain conclusions and will live my life accordingly. This is a very good thing. Trust me! I've had long talks and got to know the people most important to me. I discovered some scriptures and proverbs that totally ROCK!!! WORD UP!
Here are some i'd like to share:
A friend loves at all times. Proverbs 17:17
Walk by faith, not by sight-- 2 Corinthians 5:7
Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. Psalm 18:2
Its all good believe me! This post is so positive and i feel so strongly that things in my life will take a turn for the best! The best is yet to come, i say. WORD UP!
So, tell me folks what words do you use in your life that has meaning to you? The word that has the most meaning to me right now is:
Trust! WORD UP!!!
