today i was a bit pissed by my service provider and i almost stopped at refusing to use my phone but inside i was not happy with letting this day end without figuring out what my cellular phone was up to so i went to town and replaced my sim card and now am able to connect with folk on the web via my numerous social apps all it took was a lil pep talk and lots of patience at the customer care center man ..

...and the best way to teach others to be gracious is to model graciousness. This is especially true in our present culture of meanness and verbal assaults.

Amen. I'd rather use my words to build people up then tear them down. I truly believe whether our words are gracious or damning all starts with our very own self talk. If GOD's word rules and reigns in our lives to uplift us, then it will be evident in how we speak to others. A good way to get a picture of how gracious someone feels GOD has been to them, is captured in how we see them gracious to others.

DAY 272: Becoming a Voice of Hope



Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
~ Proverbs 16:24


Something profound happens when our views, opinions, and words turn from critical to affirming.  Our daily life begins to shift from pessimism to optimism.  Bad days turn into good days and people who avoided us begin to inch closer to us.

As followers of Christ, we not only have the responsibility to be gracious - we have the responsibility of teaching others "grace".  

If you are looking for contentment, joy, and fullness of life... look no further than the words resting behind your lips. Speak life - win life.
