Breathing (Guest Post from my dear friend, Laura Miles)

This is a guest post from my dear friend, Laura Miles.  Thanks for allowing me to post your meaningful words.

I’ve been focusing on breathing lately. We don’t normally see our breath. It’s something that just happens without even thinking about it. In the cold months, we actually get to see it. We are made aware of it in a different way. We actually see what comes out of our mouths because circumstances have changed around us. What was once warm, comfortable air has become cold and biting. We haven’t changed, the circumstances that we live in has. What if we could see our words that come out of our mouth? What if the visual effect were there? What if those words, that breath, were thought about and noticed? What if you could see what circumstances did to our words? What if that cold, biting circumstance made us aware of those words? What if no matter what the circumstances are, the words/breath were carefully considered? Life makes it where you can barely take a breath sometimes…BUT if we focus on the breath that we have and the words that we speak, life can be easier to handle. It can be easier on us and the ones around us. Life is hard. Life is good. Life is fleeting. Life can change in a breath.adult-beautiful-beauty-321576

Words of Life and Death

I have a really large head.  I mean in the physical sense.  And I have a really big mouth.  In the physical and evidently verbal sense.

Anyone share those characteristics with me?

Okay the head is a little annoying.  If I want to wear a ball cap I have to be sure and buy the kind that has the ability to be sized.  No elastic band will do.  Nope, it must be adjustable.

Now the big mouth is another thing.  The dentist and hygienist have no trouble fitting their entire hand into my mouth for cleaning or filling a cavity.  And most of the time my jaw isn’t even sore after the fact.  No struggle there.

And thankfully it is big enough that when I need to put both feet in it they fit just fine.

Just say’in.  Seems like I have done that of recent.

I have been reminded of late when Paul said …”why do I do the things I should not do and say the things I should not say?”  My version, Romans 7:19

My security in this comes in Christ.  I am surrendered to Him.

I make errors in judgement sometimes, but never with ill intent.  I would not intentionally spew out hateful words or be ugly or rude on purpose.  I certainly don’t wake up in the mornings, let my feet hit the floor and say, “hmmmm, who can I hurt today?”

I know that people who know me well know that is the case.  Even if it is unintentional and brought to my attention, an apology is offered.

Words have the ability to give life or give death.  In my weak flesh I sometimes want to choose death, but in my surrender to the Christ who lives in me I am given the ability to choose life.

Which do you choose?  And how do you choose it?

Now excuse me while I go look in my closet for a cap and a possible piece of masking tape for that mouth of mine!

What Do Your Words Carry?

Life

I am not talking about what you might think I am talking about….not about living or dying per say.

I am referring to the words we speak.

What do our words carry? Continue reading
