I have been reading a book by Joyce Meyer, ‘Change Your Words, Change Your Life: Understanding the Power of Every Word You Speak’ and thinking how significant and important words are in a marriage. Think about it for a minute, we have the power to lift each other up or tear each other down with our words and either one can happen in a moment!
Words were so important to God that he made them flesh in the form of Jesus Christ – John 1:14. God has provided us with a whole Bible full of words, His words. Life changing words.
We have an opportunity every day to lift each other up, speak in a respectful tone and let your spouse know how much you care. We have the power to affect each other for the good with our words. To speak life into our marriage daily.
There is an ‘oldie but goodie’ song titled ‘If’ by a group called Bread. The opening lines of the song are ‘if a picture paints a thousand words, why can’t I paint you, the world will never know the you I come to know’.

Why not take a few moments and picture your spouse in your mind, what words would you use to describe them in a positive way? Why not tell them how you picture them.
Words do make a difference in marriage. Speak life into your marriage everyday!
