Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24)
Desires of the heart have a way of showing in speech. When I keep my heart filled with good things, positive speech is produced and gives birth to good. Likewise, negative gives birth to bad. I have heard frequently from religions and other sources that faith combined with action and proclamations is the secret ingredients to making desires of the heart manifest. Since we possess great power it would be wise to guard our hearts as well as our mouths. It is better to bless than curse. I have found keeping my words sweet helps influence my heart to remain sweet. Staying in God’s word is another trick I use to cleanse my heart. Keep your heart sweet! (Mathew 12:33-37)
That’s really good! I will remember it “Keep your heart sweet!” THANKS! 🙂
Thanks! I had to remember it a few times today. 😉
Awww, this is sweet.
This is so true. The tongue is one of the mightiest muscles in our bodies. We have to be careful how we choose our words.
Yes. I’ve recently learned the old rhyme “sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you” is false. Words do hurt and sometimes worse than sticks and stones.
I loooove your doodles and posts!! 🙂

Hi Shannon! How are you doing? Hope you are well and looking forward to Christmas. You are right…we act according to what’s in our hearts. Good brings goodness and we need to try to stay on that path. Prayer helps us so much if we pray faithfully and with trust. I hope your holiday season is full of peace and joy!
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and all! I’ve been MIA for a while. I hope you have enjoyed the holidays. I’m slowly trying to return to work mode. Lol!
I’m aware of the grieving that you’ve been going through and that makes things so hard to do each day. I pray that you will seek comfort from the Lord, friends, and family to help you get back on track!
