In The Loop

Greetings SWAPs!

Words hurt like steel pounding fragile bones. I’d rather chisel out some sticks and stones.”

This is the first line to a poem written by Melanie and it is so true.

Words. Can. Hurt!

It doesn’t matter if it’s the words we think/speak to ourselves or that others say about us, words (especially negative ones) can stick with us for a long time. God’s word cautions us about our speech and encourages us to speak with grace and peace to one another.

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” (James 3:8)
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt; that ye may know how to answer every man.” (Colossians 4:6)

Do you or someone you know have a speech problem? Well, we would like you to join us for 31 Days of No Murmuring May! That’s right, we’ll be uncovering God’s word that warns us of the dangers of a wicked tongue and reminds us of the blessings we will receive when we speak kindly to ourselves and to one another.

Will you join us? Please do and invite a friend to subscribe to our blog to join us as well!

Also, for the month of May, Shanita and Melanie will continue with No Murmuring by swapping their personal gratitude in our Thankful Thursdays blog posts. We invite you to hear our stories of thanksgiving and fuel the dialogue, by sharing your thanks here and on our Facebook page!

Jessica Tolliver will be contributing some spirit-filled, transformational poetry this month and SWAP Answers and SWAP Connects with continue as well! We can’t wait for May!

Let’s gear up for changing the way we speak! We would love to swap with you so join the conversation so that we can all grow together in the Lord! ☺
