speak life


well my dear ones,



As you well know by now,

I’m all about speaking a word of encouragement

whenever and wherever I get the chance.


However, I’m far from the only one

who likes to do that;

the singer, TobyMac, has a new song out,

“Speak Life,” that’s all about that very thing.


You can see the lyrics here:



He got his inspiration for the song

from this quote by his favorite author:


"Anyone we come in contact with,

 we either offer them life,

 or we drain them.

 There is no neutral exchange.”

--- Brennan Manning (from his book, Abba Child)



TobyMac said,

“That means that everyone I talk to,

I have the opportunity to offer life to.
Literally, I can speak life to people.

My words can be used

to turn someone’s life around,

to encourage him or her,

to be compassion,

to be love.”


I love that.


We have the power to choose

what we will do with our words,

and our words have the power

to lift someone else up

when they may be at their lowest.


I hope you speak life to many.



Have a great week! =)


grace, peace, and love to you,




“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.”

 --- Ephesians 4:29
