Words

“Words are medicine too….Words can harm…just as the wrong medicine can harm. But words can also heal.”

Even the smallest utterance is an encouragement and an invitation to respond. Our words open intricate channels of relationship. Each time we speak, our words are alive with energy. Every word that passes our lips, every phrase and sentence we utter, has power. The words you share with me touch my brain, affect my mind, and help shape my soul. Your sentences and gestures, the tone of your voice, the language you choose—all carry the potential for healing and growth.

Souls in the Hands of a Tender God, Craig Rennebohm with David Paul, 2008
