"When God speaks, God creates. When God says, "Let there be light" (Genesis 1:3), light is. God speaks light. For God, speaking and creating are the same. It is this creative power of the word we need to reclaim. What we say is very important. When we say, "I love you," and say it from the heart, we can give another person new life, new hope, new courage. When we say, "I hate you," we can destroy another person. Let's watch our words." (Henri Nouwen) How true this is! It is not only the words we use by how we speak them that matters. I can say "I love you," but they are just sounds in the air, if they are not said in truth and with conviction.  Take a few moments to reflect on how you use these simple words in comparison how God uses them when he speaks them to you.
