Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.
November 3rd - thankful for encouragement
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Words of encouragement are food for the soul. What we say can encourage, edify and give confidence to the hearer. A right word spoken at the right time can actually be life changing.
We can literally increase our own joy by speaking right words. We can also upset ourselves by taking about our problems or things that have hurt us.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
The words that come out of our mouths go into our own ears as well as others. Then they drop down into our souls where they either gives us joy or sadness, peace or upset. depending on the types of words spoken. When we understand the power of words and realize that we can choose what we think and speak, our lives can be transformed. If we want to be healthy in our soul and spirit we should choose to take in words that will build us up and increase our peace and joy.
Every little obstacle - every fall you have - is an opportunity.
