There was a day when he took your breath away.
Every time you hear about someone breaking up or going through a divorce, a little voice seems to whisper, “You’re next.” There’s no safety zone. No way to predict who will make it. Both rich and poor experience the heartache. Those with college degrees and those with earned their education in the workforce. The couple who married a little faster than anyone recommended and the one who’s weathered difficult storms through many seasons of life.
We want to believe words don’t carry the weight they do. It’s easier to let ourselves off the hook for the impact we have on other people. The reality is that words have creative power, able to build or destroy. They give hope, crush dreams, instill safety, release fear, stir faith, or create pain. There is unlimited potential in our mouth for either good or evil.
