Thought of the Day!

Life may be difficult at times. We have to deal with a number of unexpected situations. There are unwanted emergencies, sickness, and death. Then there are disappointment when depending on others. Life is full of ups and downs. Through it all, think about how God has carried you through it all. Remembers that there are others who didn’t make it this far.

Success! You're on the list.

The Words We Speak!

Be very careful of the words that we speak in the ears of others. Words have power! This is especially true when it comes to our loved ones. Our loved ones can include our children, our spouses, our parents, and our friends. The love, respect, and appreciation which others have for us may cause them to hold our words in high regard. The power of our words can be used as a form of a teaching tool, an endearing gesture, as well as simply encouragement. The power of words can also be used as a weapon to tear down or even destroy another. This is played out in relationships each day. During those moments of disagreement, things are sometimes done and said in order to hurt the other. Once those words have been uttered, they can never be taken back. The effects of those words may continue to live in their hearts even after they have offered forgiveness.

Personally, I can remember words that my dad said to me many years ago. Some of those words were very encouraging while other words brought about shame and guilt. I can see a lasting effect in my life even as I attempt to overcome them. Once words have been spoken in the ears of others, they can’t be taken back. Yes, others may forgive but those words may forever live on. The power of those words have already hit them where it hurts, right in the heart!

Be mindful of the power that we possess through words. Use our words in order to bring the best out of those whom we say that we love by offering hope and encouragement for others.

An Encouraging Word From the Author


A short encouraging word from the Author Mark Baynard. I would like to encouraging everyone to reach for your goals. Don’t allow anyone to discourage you from reaching for the sky. You may  never know the great things which you can accomplish if you aren’t willing to take a chance on your dreams. You only fail at something when you refuse to try. You have to have faith that you are able to do it. As mentioned in the scriptures, “Faith without works is dead.” Go ahead, take a chance on reaching your goals. If you fall in the process, get back up and try again. Best wishes to everyone!
