Moms Are World Changers
Our words are powerful. More powerful then we sometimes realize. I’ve noticed that when I am frustrated or just having a bad day my words can “kill” and not bring life. We all have bad days and these are the days that we need to be extra careful with our words.
My son, Landon will be four in September and he still isn’t 100% potty trained. In his defense it has been a rough year for our family and I just haven’t been as consistent as I should. But the past month or so I have been more on top of it and I still have been extremely disappointed. Not just with him but myself. I honestly feel like he is never going to be potty trained! I have literally pictured myself changing poopy diapers FOREVER!
Ever time I talk to people or other mothers I constantly find myself comparing. I am always saying, “Yah, Landon will never be potty trained!” or “My one year old will be trained before him.”
One day while I was having one of my rants and talking about my struggles with potty training I felt extremely convicted. It was like all of a sudden I realized that I was talking negatively about my son. I should be his #1 fan, his biggest supporter! I was allowing my frustrations to take over! I should be speaking life over him and declaring that he will be potty trained!
You are probably thinking I am crazy… It is just potty training! But then I began to really start evaluating what I am speaking over my children. Is it positive or negative?
Proverbs 12:6 “The words of the wicked kill, the speech of the upright saves.” (MSG)
Proverbs 18:21 “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit - you choose.” (MSG)
This week I challenge you to speak life over your children, over yourself, your spouse, family & friends! You maybe surprised with the outcome!
I am not going to lie, Landon still isn’t 100% potty trained but he is doing so much better! Words do bring life and I am speaking life over him…NO MORE POOPY DIAPERS!
