Today’s fragrance: Speak well

Today’s fragrance by Papberry

Topic: Speak well

Scripture: Ephesians 4:29

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen”.

Today we want to examine ourselves.

What kind of words exit your mouth when it’s brake fail? Do you flow freely with unwholesome words or that which is pleasant?

Need I remind you that words have so much power? And we attract what we speak upon ourselves?

Sometimes when some punch of a word hits you, if God does not intervene it might render you handicapped for the rest of your life.

What words do you utter in the midst of happy friends? How about the downtrodden? And that person constantly getting on your nerves?

Under no circumstance should your words hurt someone, but because we are humans we fall short sometimes and so when this happens, don’t delay in rendering heartfelt apologies to the persons involved. 
From now be sure to taste your own words before feeding it to others, I’m sure you wouldn’t love to eat spoilt food so don’t contaminate people’s lives by feeding them with your expired words!



Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for my life today. Lord please forgive my sins as I forgive others. Your word has come to me and I promise to obey by speaking right, help me Lord even as I take this step in Jesus name have I prayed with thanksgiving, Amen.

Thoughtful Tuesday


I’m really excited ’cause I’ve got the chance to come your way with a quote on a Thoughtful Tuesday.

I trust you are well?

here we go then…

“Words are free, it’s how you use them that may cost you”.

I see words as the most common and free commodity on the market yet the most costly if used wrongly. There is a thing about commonality, most often than not, their capabilities are underrated getting us to an unexpected end.

Even the bible says no temptation has overtaken us except that which is common…

I always say that results or effects of uttered words are multiplying, you send a wind out and you get a whirlwind back.

Just like planting maize if you don’t have the ability to hold what will come out of that one seed, why plant?

It is better then to keep your mouth shut to save that one seed than release it and have no room to keep what you reap.

Matthew 12:36-37

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

so watch it my dear, it’s not just a word when it gets out of your mouth, it becomes power.

This power builds and destroys.

Chose wisely and be safe.

Till we meet again…


The Power of Words

Galatians 6:7
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

Have you ever heard of the law of cause and effect?
“As you sow, so shall you reap”.
– Whatever you put out in the Universe is what comes back to you.
– If what you want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship… Then you should be Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.

When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly.
For the sake of this study we will focus on speech because a lot of people still do not know how powerful words are.

The Genesis of everything that exists now is the Word of God.
By His words He commanded the whole world into being and by the same word He put boundaries in place and made sure that everything was in order.

Sometimes i get sad when i hear people utter negative words ignorantly into their lives because those same people tend to point fingers at persons other than themselves when things are not going well in their lives.

Proverbs 18:21 says;
Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Whenever words are uttered we give them permission to affect(exist in) our lives and that of others.
When they are released, it waits for the appointed time to react with certain actions.
And the bible makes it clear in Hosea 8:7 that
“They sow the wind
and reap the whirlwind.

Whatever we sow has a multiplying effect, therefore whenever we give out something we receive in abundance that particular thing we sown.

Sow good and you will reap goodness in abundance the same applies to evil, sow it and you will reap evil in abundance.

Job 22:28
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee:
and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

So if we have this power lying on our tongues, why not use it to our benefit?
As a man thinks so he is in his speech and out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

It takes conscious efforts to make this happen in your life and by the help of the Holy Spirit you are more than Able to make this work.

Has anyone thrown tomato seeds somewhere unconsciously without attending to it and weeks later, come around and see it germinating and you go like, who planted these here and the next moment you realize it exists by your actions?
Exactly… Those seeds found the necessary conditions for growth and therefore it began sprouting!
The same happens when we release words, so watch it, because whatever you sow you will reap and the urgency attached to this is that, you get more than you can handle(multiples).

Do not think you are too smart and you can outwit God, He existed long before He formed you. And so do not also think that whatever you are doing will not be exposed, at the right time the words you have released will break dormancy and rule over your life.

And so i end with this text…
Hosea 10:12
Sow righteousness for yourselves,
reap the fruit of unfailing love,
and break up your unplowed ground;
for it is time to seek the Lord,
until he comes
and showers his righteousness on you.

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for the gift of life given me, i am indeed grateful for the mercy shown.
Please forgive my errors and make me whole again.
Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.
Help me bring out goodness even when the circumstances around me prevents that.
I trust and believe in you God, that you are able to turn my life around and so thank you father for making your ears attent unto my prayer and answering it in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
