Speak life and possibility

You probably have both of these kinds of people in your life.  The ones that complain about everything, and the ones that seem to find the bright side in every circumstance. 

A friend of mine said his new years resolution is to “speak life and possibility” into people’s lives.  I love that.  I think it starts at home.

Every night as a part of the bedtime routine with the kids I tell them what I am “most proud of them for” that day. Maybe it’s playing nicely with their siblings, or helping Mommy put away the groceries.  

For as much time as they spend in Time Out, they need me to tell them what they are good at too. 

I think, once we speak life and possibility into the lives of our children, they speak it into the lives of their friends, and the lives of their children, and their Grandchildren. 

If you’re searching for significance in your life, there it is right there.  It’s not about making a million dollars so you can give 10 percent of it away.  It’s about speaking life and possibility into the lives of the people that God puts in your path.  You’re his Good Will Ambassador at school, at work, in your car.

If you really want to change the way the world sees God, then more people hear the words, “I believe in you.” instead of “You’re not good enough.”

“Pull those we love close and speak words of true love and grace to them every chance we get (from Scott & Kelli’s blog 01/04).” Thanks K-LOVE. You pull me closer to God and the ones I love every single day. You make the world a beautiful place.

Thanks Amanda,
Speak life and possibilities starts with God all things are possible. The sky is the limit. As my nephew showed me at fours old. Watching television, why is he falling down and getting up? Then I saw the football game on and the running back being tackled, and he'd fall and get up. To him that was exciting. It's when I took him jogging and on the third lap he kind of fell down, I ran back to see why he let himself down. As soon as I got to him, he got up and ran as hard as he could. The closer I got he would act like he fell down again. The thing was, I was on the track field and some lady was on the track also. I was laughing at his playfullness. At four years old. Now he's six foot one or two ans loves to exercise. Especially with those with out Dad's or Mom's or both to see that God loves them still and to get that love and reinforcement early in life. Learn to share rather than fight.
