“I also could speak as you do,
If your soul were in my soul’s place.
I could heap up words against you,
and shake my head at you;
But I would strengthen you with my mouth,
And the comfort of my lips would relieve your grief.” Job 16:4-5
Mother Theresa said, “Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.”
Lord, we thank You for Your Word to us, which is Life. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Words get heaped upon us
more and more it seems
clouding our thoughts, stifling our hope
smothering our dreams.
But Your Word gives life
and that abundantly
You heal and set us free.
