Dear me: speak truth
that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.
“Listen to me! For I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right, for I speak the truth and detest every kind of deception. My advice is wholesome. There is nothing devious or crooked in it.” Proverbs 8:6-8 NLT
What does truth mean to you? What voice do you allow to speak the loudest in your life? There are many voices to be heard in today’s world. If you look and listen hard enough, you will find someone who will argue for and against life itself. I’ve recently been thinking about the words I speak over myself and others. Not only is it important to guard and deflect who gets to speak over your life, but also the lives of the people around you. What kind of friend are you? Do you encourage and speak truth over others, or walk by and let others crash and burn? It can take courage and authority to be bold enough to stand up for what you believe in? Are you so confident in the truth you believe in, that your aren’t afraid of losing an acquaintance.
What is the truth in your life? By which morals and values do you live, and how do you speak these over others. Have you thought about the greater good, the universe, God and beyond? Have you considered what’s your purpose in life and what you believe in. We live in a time where everyone is entitled to an opinion, whether it be good or bad. Do you take it upon yourself to stand up for injustice, educate those around you and fight for the minority in your community.
Speaking is a personal passion of mine. There is power in communication and sharing your voice with others. Our truth’s can also be our vulnerabilities; what we’ve been through and the lessons we’ve learnt. Vulnerability breeds vulnerability. Sharing your story with others can encourage and educate those around you on the facts and realities of life.
Therefore let me encourage you to speak truth. To place honour and value on your beliefs; to influence others with fact and not opinions. Let us be people who support and love others through the way we speak. Personally my truth is in my faith; honouring and placing value on young women and spreading joy love and kindness wherever I go.
What’s your truth and how are you communicating it to the world?
