Five Minute Friday Voice
“For the tongue is a pen, which pressing deeply enough…whether for good or for evil…will write upon the heart. “ Mystery of Marriage
The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3:6
Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.
Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. James 3:5
“Only speak words that make a soul stronger.” Ann Voskamp
We are made in His image…and He gave us the power to create…
With His voice He spoke this world into existence
With His voice He called forth beauty…
With His voice He called forth life.
We too have power with our voice…
Will we use it to speak hope into hopeless situations…
Speak beauty where there are ashes…
Speak life into lifeless circumstances
Will we use our voice to tear down or build up
Will we use our voice to speak of His Majesty
To speak of His Truth…
But most importantly
Will we use our voice to speak words that bring healing
Words that speak in His language of Love.
The winner of the book…is Brenna who writes at Chicago Mama.
Let me know your mailing address and I will get this out to you.
I pray you are as blessed by this book as I was.
Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
