Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14).
Recently, this question has been asked: “What is your word for this year?” There are joyful and loving words, encouraging words, healing words, hurting words, and courageous words. As the day unfolds before you, think of the words you will use in sharing the love of the Lord. At times it may be the silent words of a hand reaching out or the words of opportunity to simply say “thank you.” The most precious words are the words of the Lord. “but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you (1 Peter 1:25).
What words will you use today? And how will you use them? If words do not come easy, perhaps sharing an LWML Mustard Seed Devotion may be all it is necessary to encourage someone’s day. Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body (Proverbs 16:24).
