The Power of Our Words and Why What We Say Matters!

Over the last year I’ve come to the realization that our words have power. You can research and see the different experimental studies that have been done on plants. An individual will verbally speak to two identical plants. The plant that has negative things spoken to it dies, while the one who is praised and had positivity thrives.

The bible tells us in multiple different places like; Proverbs 10:31, Proverbs 12:14 & Proverbs 18:21 that what we say matters. These verses remind us that our words can basically bless or curse us. I came to the heartbreaking realization that I had been cursing myself for most of my life. Especially since becoming a creator. I’ve spoken the phrase to or about myself, “I’m not good with words.” These words are simple but direct.

There was one afternoon when I had the realization I broke down and cried. I surrendered these words and feelings to God/Yahweh. I prayed and asked that he would remove this stronghold, this stumbling block that I had placed on myself for years. I specifically started asking and praying that he would help me to become better with words and here I am.

I smile… I’ve been given so many opportunities to speak already with the Wolterman Homestead social media platform. Along with being invited to speak/teach at the different homesteading conferences and events. Recently, I started this website where I try to share a post each Monday. I was blessed to be interviewed by “Bold Journey” and share my story. Then I got a message in my inbox about a podcast interview! (Linked below). It’s been a beautiful and healing journey.

I pray that your eyes are opened and if you have a stumbling block too, that you surrender it to God/Yahweh and allow him to move in your life. Stumbling blocks can look different for each person. They could be how you see yourself, how you speak to yourself (like me), how you love yourself and so many other things. Yet in these things, I want to remind you… that they aren’t who God/Yahweh says you are. Find your identity in him, not what others or even you sometimes say about yourself.

“The tongue has power over life and death; those who indulge it must eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21
