YOUR words should reflect the work of the Holy Spirit

RECEIVING A LOT OF LETTERS FROM PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH TOUGH TIMES WITH THEIR OWN KIDS. THERE ARE SO MANY BULLIES OUT THERE TARGETING OUR KIDS. PARENTS ARE REALLY FED UP WITH THIS BEHAVIOR AND ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO EMPOWER THEIR OWN KIDS.


THIS BLOG POST IS REPUBLISHED BY REQUEST. 
WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED 1/23/12, 12:01 AM


I HEARD TWO KIDS SAYING SOME PRETTY HARSH WORDS THIS MORNING.....When they saw me headed their way, they immediately went in the other direction and took off FAST!!  Obviously they saw the look on my face. Boy was I shocked. Amazingly I  am a little old-fashioned. Growing up if you used such harsh words our mom would be standing by for the "smack down".



This event that I just described speaks volumes
 on how times have changed.

My mother taught us girls that the words that we speak from our mouth should ALWAYS be spoken creatively and be designed to uplift and build up another...Those words I heard was not even close...The truth of the matter is... I was blushing.




My kids think that I am a little
old-fashioned or just a little out of touch with the teenagers today...



Maybe a little bit of BOTH.

When I saw my daughter, I described in detail to her some of the words that I had just heard...and to my shock she was not at all surprised. Apparently this happens often with kids today. Not all kids behave in this manner but I was not prepared for what I was hearing.

This sad fact brings up a interesting debate on HURTFUL WORDS..






http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/





So that same evening I felt it was imperative that I sit my own kids down and discuss this issue. My job as a parent is never ending and I find myself learning something new everyday. I told my kids that the words which leave their lips have serious consequences.



 Basically.... their words should REFLECT THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and that their words have REAL POWER.

What leaves your mouth enters your house so use your mouth intentionally!









YOUR WORDS SHOULD REFLECT
THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT







Matthew 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. (KJV)






However, be good of heart, so that good words come out of your mouth Luke 6:45 to generate good things in life.







When our words are aimed to hurt and tear down, we are living in denial of what God is doing for us and our future.......

My lesson for my kids was to continue to turn to God to help them choose their words and that their father and I was here if they ever wanted to talk again.

Have you had a similar discussion with your kids. I would love to hear your story. Until then, I will be praying for you.

  1. Some people forget how hurtful words can be...If they just took a minute to think and Think carefully about how they speak & what comes out of their mouth...
    Our words have power. All of your words should be positive and should always make someone's day a little brighter ...Continue to let your words always be positive. Let them bring glory & honor to GOD. Have a wonderful day

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

Ways to get some EXTRA CASH in your pockets

WE LOVE EXTRA CASH 


I always say that I am going to have a garage sale. OK so maybe you have heard that once before. (I am a bit of a procrastinator) When I look around the garage there are tons of stuff that I could probably sale. Recently, the kids and I donated quite a bit of that stuff to the Salvation Army. I felt really good about that.



CHARITY

CHARITY



The Salvation Army is one of my favorite charities and I figured the stuff was just sitting around gathering dust. Giving back makes me feel better and I am teaching my kids how to save, volunteer, give back and honor God all at the same time. The reality is, we all can use some EXTRA CASH and the stuff laying around your house could be priceless to someone. 








How much extra stuff do you have lying around the house that you never use? You could arrange the items and sell them at a Garage sale.







MAKE SOME MONEY

Before you know it, you can turn that extra stuff into cash. So today as you are going about your day, why no…

By growing my relationship with God and loving Him wholeheartedly, I have unintentionally grown to love myself as well!

I am finding my way back to the woman I always knew I was! My name is Lashon and I am a 48 year old divorced mother of three. I was married for half of my life.  I tell you my story today with no regrets, no shame only love and compassion. A few years ago I changed and through my journey I learned a lot of tough lessons about myself and my relationship.  From the outside my marriage looked perfect.  Well, it really wasn't. I was not aware that my marriage was over, dead and virtually stagnant.

With the help of a great psychologist, my church, my friends and through hard work I have changed. People change for many reasons but most are caused by two main events. The first reason that people change is by choice, their minds have opened and they simply want to evolve. They crave for something better. The second reason that people change is not by choice, their heart is broken so now what do you do? You have to accept change whether you want…

OK, So I Want to eat Oreo Cookies everyday. Well, maybe not everyday! I also want to stay in the BEST shape possible. Something isn’t adding up!

Hello and welcome back to my blog. So glad that you are able to stop by here and join me. Today I want to talk about having a simple exercise plan. Exercise is a very touchy subject when you get to my age.
I mean I wake up some mornings and this old body aches from head to toe. Can you relate? Although my pain is terrible sometimes, I am determined to keep this weight off. I am at a great size and I am finally moving around without getting out of breath. It really is no fun being sick and its no fun being in the hospital. that my friends is my absolute worst nightmare. So I am committed to exercising AT LEAST three times a week.
