The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

What Do You Say?

“Good words are worth much, and cost little.” - George Herbert

From the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach is satisfied;
he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
- Proverbs 18:20-21

Appellation: “a name or title” - New Oxford American Dictionary

You never know what your words will do. You’ll never know the forgiveness they can emit, the life they can input, or the appellation they can give. When the Bible speaks about creation it describes it as being a result of words. God spoke everything we know into existence. “In the beginning,” it says, “was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” - John 1:1 That Word was Jesus. (see John 1:14) And what did God say about creation..? “It was very good.” - Genesis 1:31 Just as we were made in the image of God, our words impart power too.  A single sentence can change a day, even a life. A single word can define, conquer, or build up. You can’t know what some of the people you will speak to today have been going through. Even your own spouse. So let’s be careful with our words. With our words, let’s be builders of character, destroyers of evil, and creators of joy. Our greatest power lies just on the other side of our tongue. Let’s use it wisely. You could change the world today with a word. What do you say?
