"...these loaves that I will share with you, were baked with love, and what I know so far. I'm a firm believer that we are what we eat, and I pray the bread I share here with you, will nourish and encourage you".

When children are young and learning to speak we often encourage them to use their words. They are often more inclined to point out things that they want, to nod in agreements or shake their heads to signal their censure. They often times will cry in frustration and scream in anger. But in order to direct them we say “ use your words”. This of course, after we have taught or provided them with the words to express themselves. But that is them, and that was then, what about now, what about you? May I invite or encourage you to use your words?

You see, the word comes first and life is created after the word. So let us use our words. The Gospel of John 1:1-4 tells us clearly that; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What I’m getting from this powerful scripture is that words are not only creative power they are law. For they are God. And that with the word came everything else, for God said “let there be” which suggests to me, that we hold the power of life and death and all creation in our mouths, with our words.

The truth is that we use our words constantly, though often times unconsciously. Still the power remains. Therefore we have created such things as darkness and demons who come to rob us of our bliss, those things we really want, the way we think we’d like life to be. And then we use our words to report and repeat all that appears to be wrong, therefore creating more of what is wrong. We use our words to magnify our fears and our pangs, there by creating more of the same. For remember the word comes first and the word is law.

If for example we use our words to hurt or disillusion others what we create is hurt, and disillusionment, but not as we may think, we create these things in the only place where our word is law and that is within our own lives. Conversely, when we use our words to love and support others, we create loving and supportive outlets within ourselves and for ourselves.

Use your words and use them carefully! For our words are the building blocks of our realities. Our words are the bricks our thoughts are the mortar, and our feelings are the energies which build our worlds. It is not rocket science, but it is the law and the ignorance of the law dose not make us exempt.

Habakkuk 2:2 says; Then the Lord replied: write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. This to me, is an invitation to use our words. Use your words with intention and clarity. It also speaks to the power of the written word. It is the instruction by which our realities are created. For we recognize our own words.
Might we then be reminded to think before we speak. For words, though powerful are impersonal, they can be blessings or curses. They will create after themselves but can only be received by recognition.

So you see this is what I know so far;
Our mouths are the portals by which our minds slip out, let us think first and use our words not to report our fears, but to create our lives as we wish them to be.
