TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Are You Careful About the Words You Use?

    Ladies, did you know that words have power? They can build a person up or they can knock them down! Do you select your words carefully when talking to your family and friends? This question goes beyond cussing.

    Do you speak kindly or with diplomacy, even if you’re disagreeing with someone? Or do you often leave conversations wishing you hadn’t said some of the things you did?

    Certainly, when we speak negatively to someone, we can’t help but feel bad about it. We get over it, right? But the words have still taken effect. They’re remembered. And in so many cases, they’re never forgotten.

    Following is a beautiful song called “Words” by Hawk Nelson, a Christian rock band.  It features Bart Millard of MercyMe, and it’s Hawk Nelson’s first single from their upcoming album. The official video hasn’t been released yet, so I posted the lyric video so you can read the words! The message is something we all need to take to heart.

    Have you caught yourself regretting something you’ve said to someone else?

    Unfortunately, regret can’t fix hurtful words, but an apology helps. If you can say sorry, you should. And if you can saturate the past negative words with the positive, then start working on it. But most importantly, do your best to always select your words carefully in the future!

    Ladies, have you hurt someone with your words? Have you been hurt by words?

    1. I know I’ve hurt others with my words before, and I try to apologize if I can, because I feel horrible later. Since having some serious fights with friends recently, and a few of them could easily have been avoided, I’ve set up some rules to help make sure that I don’t come across an argument when I am incapable of being calm, such as when I’m PMSing, when it’s kinda late at night, or if something’s happened recently to make me kinda emotional (for example, having had a really bad day or having a big test in the morning) I don’t always do well at sticking to these rules, but it’s definitely helped keep things like that from happening as often. 🙂

    2. Wow, that is the best song ever! I love songs, they are a huge part of my worship and this is now an immediate favorite. And you are very correct. Words are power and in all honesty dangerous. Words can inspire love and they can inspire war. They can tear you down or build you up. Thank you for pointing this out.

    3. ya my mom n i fight alot and one time i accidently said shutup … but i said sorry i mean be quiet…. i try my best though cuz sometimes she makes fun of me and stuff…. so i have to get defensive… so … ya…….. i guess i should wrk on tht

    4. (Ephesians 4:29) Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

      This article is a great reminder to watch what you say!!!! Great job as always Mrs.Gaouette. 😀

    5. Thanks a lot for this! I often go to bed at night regretting what I said earlier that day and just sit there thinking what I could have said instead. And I love Hawk Nelson too. 🙂 Music seems to be what gets me thru a lot of things often times. It just seems to speak to me and calm my soul listening to Christian Music or radio like KLove or Air1.

    6. Man, a long time ago, I really caused awful drama with my “best friend”. I started rumors, said her parents were horrible, ugly people, and I had the nerve to say she was the problem and not me. I hurt this person so badly that she moved away, blocked me on all social platforms, and I’ve heard news she even cuts herself. I was so awful! Now I can’t even apologize or make anything right again. I don’t know what to do. I know God has forgiven me, but I want to show her how sorry I am and that I’d be happy to be ACTUAL friends. PI Girls, please don’t be like me. Use words for other people’s benefit, not to boost your own ego.
