How is it that a few words crafted carefully can paint a picture so vivid?

Why can they hold so much power over our thoughts, our emotions, our lives?

What is it about

WORDS?

Used in anger,

or carelessly

can

shred

break

ruin

How is such a little thing so full?

Because the first words spoken were done so

to create:

“Then God said, ‘Let there be—‘” Gen. 1:3

God could have created in any way, yet He choose to speak.

Words can hold such beauty, grace, encouragement.

Words can change the actions

or attitudes of those who receive them

And yet it seems that so few have the ability to craft them well.

To sew them together, fashioning images, ideas of blessing, value.

To those who have this gift my request goes out

Use it

Do not allow life to hinder

or doubt and difficulty to subdue

but craft

CREATE

with the understanding

that it should be to honor

the Creator

and encourage the

creation.
