A Word About Our Words

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

If someone who does not know you were to have recorded every word you said yesterday, what conclusions would they draw about you? Would they see a different person depending on who was around you? Would they say you were of the same character throughout the day?

It is easy to forget that the Lord hears every word and has promised we will answer for every one of them. It is easier still to forget that the words that come out of our mouths tell the truth about our hearts.

None of us gets it right all the time, but let us strive to be more mindful of what we allow to come out of our mouths today. When we stand before the Lord, may He find that the number of sweet, encouraging, and edifying words outnumber the ones that displease Him.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
