Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Proverbs 18:21

Our words have an extreme amount of power over our life, and can literally dictate our future.  Proverbs says that death and life are in the power of tongue, and that we will eat the fruit of our words. So what fruit are you eating?  Are you speaking about death or life?

It can become really easy during tough times to remain positive.  That being said, the more we speak negativity into our lives the more negative our lives become.  I hear people declaring death on their life all the time.  Whether it be statements such as “I am so sick,” “I am so tired”, or “This economy is so bad, I will never get out of poverty or make it past these bills.” All these statements will lead to more sickness, tiredness, and poverty.

When times are hard it is extremely important to change those negative statements into positives affirmations.  Don’t talk about the way you are, talk about the way you want to be.  Stop telling yourself you are too sick, too tired, or too poor. Change your sick statement to “I am expressing health;” All symptoms are natural God given mechanisms to save our lives.  If we did not have symptoms such as a fever, pain, or coughing we would never be able to live in this world.

Start saying “I am happy, I am healthy, I am terrific! I won’t just survive I will thrive!”  Start each morning by speaking life into your day, with power and positivity, and you will see a difference, that is a promise!
