Why We Should Speak Life

Why We Should Speak Life

– ajoyfulchristianteen ✨

Believe it or not, unfortunate things can happen in our lives because of ourselves. That’s right, we can be a huge part of the cause. Why? Because we may be constantly saying things that are negative. We may say that traffic is going to be bad today, and when we get on the highway, it is . If we convince ourselves that we will fail on our test, it’s not a surprise if we end up getting a failing grade.

The words that we allow to come out of our mouths have a lot of meaning. Much more than we give them credit for.

Today, I want to talk about “speaking life,” or saying faith-filled, loving, positive words, that can improve our lifestyles on the whole. This is because it allows us to change our perspectives on things that the world may see as negative, and giving them a positive spin.

God’s light never dims. It is a bright, scintillating, divine light that never fades, but only becomes brighter. And that light is always visible somewhere in our lives because the Lord never leaves our side.

But it’s up to us to acknowledge His light. And I say acknowledge because, a lot of the time, we do see God’s light. We see the positivity and grace that He has placed into our lives. But sometimes, we may not acknowledge it. Instead, we might focus on the dark, and all the things that we wish were different or the things we wish weren’t there.

Challenge:

Try not to complain about anything, aloud or in our heads. Instead, let’s do our best to focus on God’s light. ✝️

Remember, all we have to do is focus on Him. As long as we obey the Lord’s commands, we will be blessed in many more ways than one.

Proverbs 18:21 NIV – The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

The Importance of Time With God

The Importance of Time With God

-ajoyfulchristianteen ✨

We all need that time where we sit down and spend some quality time with our Father, God. This time might be meditating on a new scripture, or even praying to him and thanking him for what he has blessed us with. Regardless, there are so many different ways to spend time with our Father.

But why is time with God so important? This is simply because, in order to truly develop a relationship with him, we need to make sure that we talk to him, pray to him, and spend time with him. Not only this, but it will help us become more familiar with who He is, and establish an overall closer relationship.

Think about it. The way that we get closer to people that we can see is by spending time with them, or bonding with them. A huge part of a Christian lifestyle should be having quiet time with the Lord.

Our time with God doesn’t have to be super long. It could be just a simple “Thank you!” or sitting quietly with Him. Even if it is just 5-10 minutes a day, the fact that you are giving Him all the Glory is what matters, the most.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post about Our time with God, and its important. Remember balance is key!

Have an amazing day everyone! ✨

Romans 12:1-2 NIV – Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

2 Timothy 1:7 NIV – For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
