No Kick From The Trigger

Bang, bang, rollin’ off your tongue. 

When the enemy attacks you in moments of weakness the LORD will rescue you. He will bring you into a safe place and He will deliver you because He takes delight in you who love and obey Him.  Amen

Inferior. It’s not a nice word or a pretty word or a pleasant feeling. But we’ve all felt it at some time. Lately, I think I’ve been feeling that for numerous reasons:

  • school because I don’t “have time” to read 25-50+ pages PLUS go to class
  • because I’m not working and going to college at the same time
  • because I’m not as pretty/insert thing here as someone else
  • because I’m considering getting married before my fiance and I have been engaged for an entire year
  • and sometimes, because I’m kind of afraid of the future

I’m sick and tired of that.

Words are literally like bullets shooting out of a gun. Once you pull that trigger, even the slightest bit, you set off a huge chain of events. That “bullet” leaves the barrel and immediately starts charging down its course to rip into a person. It slices the air into thin slivers and almost as easily as it left the gun, penetrates it’s victim. Straight to the heart or the head is the most lethal. The “bullet” is just as painful as words can be. I promise you. Once the bullet leaves the chamber, it is completely out in the open, out of your hands and there’s no way to take it back. No rewind button whatsoever. You can’t pull it back in and make it disappear. Just like words leave a mouth, bullets charge away.

I wish words were like little toy guns. 

Carrie Underwood - Little toy Guns love it!!

Wish they didn’t break you inside.

But that’s the strangest thing about words. They do hurt. They do cause pain. Maybe the worst type of pain. So, what are you doing with your words? Do you use them as weapons to cut and slay and manipulate others, or do you use them in the best way you can? Are you trying to remember that anything you say can actually hurt someone? I think that we have to remember that words and both magical and harmful. Let’s use those to be positive : )

I don’t wanna feel inferior about not working or wanting to get married before a year has passed. The negative feelings about beauty will take time, but I can change the others now. I’m not working because I take 18 hours….that’s hard for me. Going to school is hard for me…handling this ed, that’s hard for me…and both together are difficult. But I’m going to do it….I’m going to make it.

Speak Now

Powerful reminder to THINK before you speak.Think before you speak.  My father's lesson for sure.

Think before you speak. We have all heard those words countless amount of times and we definitely comprehend the meaning. However, the question is here is are we listening to what that phrase really means? Thinking before we speak is more important than we think it is. It’s more than insulting someone’s new outfit, haircut or dating choices. Words have the power to destroy people or build people up. It just all depends on how we choose to use to put these words together to make phrases, sentences and paragraphs.

I know from firsthand just how much words can hurt. The words that someone once said to me when I was a young girl led me to spiral into this darkness that I’m still trying to dig and crawl my way out of. My self esteem was already at a low level and adding that comment into my  repertoire didn’t  help my case any.

I recently had a friend that had the same thing happen to her. My heart hurt for her because I knew exactly how she felt and how much that stung. I seriously wanted to drive over their and punch that person in the face for her! Here again I say, think before you speak please!!!

You can never ever know what another person is going through, what their personal struggles are or how they will take what you say to them, whether it was meant as a joke, sarcastically or in any other manner. My point is, overall, think before you speak. Words are more powerful than you think. They can slice people into tiny pieces, make them cry on the floor or they can make them smile and believe in themselves. Use yours for positive and good experiences and not negative ones.
