WALKING ON WATER

Water, with all of its uses, symbolises LIFE.

All LIFE comes from Elohim – Creator GOD who made the Heavens and Earth. All LIFE came from God’s WORD. He SPOKE and THERE WAS……

Unlike anything else – the WORD OF GOD carries the life creating & sustaining power of God Himself.

In the book of Isaiah Chapter 55 verses 10 -11 God spoke these words:

“For as the rain comes down and the snow from Heaven and do not return there, but water the earth and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater – So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void – empty -without fruit, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I God sent it”

John 4 verse 14

“whoever drinks of the water [God’s word] that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

This series of Blogs will take us on a journey – to step out into life – laying a foundation of God’s word for each step.

So whatever you are searching for – meaning, truth, love……give the Word of God a try – it just might work….

“And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail”. (Isaiah 58 verse 11).

A Few Words Can Change The World

What Are Your Words Worth?

Words give expression to thoughts.  Research shows that people can have 70,000+ thoughts in one day

Research has also shown that a woman uses about 20,000 words per day while a man uses about 7,000. (Dr. Louann Brizendine, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco – “The Female Brain”)

There are many studies giving variations in these figures. But what is the quality and value of what you say? What are your words-worth?

Try this: If you were to put a price tag on the words you will speak today, how much do you honestly think you could charge… and realistically get paid?

If you were to ask others how much they would pay to listen to you, what would they offer?

Perhaps these are not easy questions to answer, but what I’m suggesting you do is start asking yourself:

Do my words have real value?

What kind of difference will they make to me/others?

Why am I speaking?

Are my words really communicating what I want to get across?

What do I want to get out of this conversation?

Words are powerful and can have long-lasting impact. Words (and thoughts) can increase your life and they can have the opposite effect too!

We aren’t all naturally gifted with incredible vocal skills but we can improve how we communicate – words and body language.

Here are some simple ideas to try:

1. Record yourself for a day. If you can do this, confidentially (outside of work, of course), press the record button on your mobile, clip it your belt and just get on as normal.

2. Listen back to your conversations.

3. Note down any thoughts about your words used in communication.

4. Ask yourself if you would you change anything you said? How well did you communicate?

You have the ability to impact lives and your circumstances every day through the words we speak. Are you speaking life?

It’s time to start doing that…. and then watch and see the doors your words will open in your life.

Have a prosperous and blessed day!
