Speaking Life Words

Today the message was about speaking life words, and avoiding using dark words. This message really hit home with me. One of the verses, Ephesians 4:12 to be specific, took it even further for me. I walk around putting on the face of a Christian, I talk with God multiple times a day, I LOVE my God; but yet, I still struggle with this simple thing: keeping the negative out.
I realize now that I cannot change what people think of me, or what they think they know about me---I've just got to be me, and let God's words speak through me with my actions. My mom always said 2 things: "Actions speak louder than words", & "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". I guess the point of it all is to treat people with love, and you will get love in return. If everything you say is bad, or has a negative undertone, then how can you expect your life to be anything but miserable? Negativity can consume you, and I refuse to let it get the best of me. I've got some work to do, and I pray that God will give me the words to speak, that He'll guide me each day & help me to not fall into the traps set before me. I'm going to do what the words in the song we all sang as little kids says: "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine...."
Let it shine people....let it shine! :)
