I have a confession to make.
I leave words unspoken more than I like to admit.
I love you.
I need You.
Moments pass when the words could have been spoken, and I didn’t speak them…
Sometimes out of fear the person I speak them to will not receive them, or somehow reject me.
Taking my mind off of reality and venturing into the world of “What its” has me speaking all the parts in my head, and not out loud where they need to be said.
Or I don’t seize the moment when it presents itself as I am distracted by something else.
We don’t always have another moment.
Life can pass us by in the blink of an eye if we are not careful.
Don’t miss the moment you are meant to live out of fear.
Bring your fear to the One who shows us who He is, and how to make the fear leave by filling up with His love.
For perfect love casts out fear.
Say the words you are meant to say when you are meant to say them.
We are all called to bless and build up those around us, not to cower away and leave things unspoken.
If we are paying close attention to the ones we love, and the One who knows all things, we shouldn’t miss His cue to speak:
What can I do?
I love you.
Need a hand?
Let’s grab a cup of coffee and talk.
“So encourage one another and build each other up….” I Thessalonians 5:11
When necessary, use words.
My prayer for you, for me: we will all hear His prompting whisper to speak the words needed to build one another up and show our love with both our words & our actions.
To live each moment to its fullest, leaving nothing we were meant to say unspoken.
