–path in the park–
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
Used in anger,
How is such a little thing so full?
Because the first words spoken were done so
“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
Do not allow life to hinder
or doubt and difficulty to subdue
with the understanding
that it should be to honor
and encourage the
