IF's Word of the week "Clutter"
Peter's head was often filled with negative words that cluttered his mind and spirit.
His mom knew that it was time to help him clean house before it was to late.
Remember what our moms and dads told us when people said mean things to us?
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."
It sound good, but sadly it was a lie. I use to get my butt handed to me at school.
I was constantly picked on and bullied. It wasn't so much the hitting that injured
as it was the words that people said. Someone will always say, "You're to old, young,
skinny, fat, black, white, yellow, red, rich, poor or something. It has made me
so aware and careful of what comes out of my mouth. I can either bless and encourage
or curse and be negative. I rather bless and encourage. I now fill my head with positive words
and affirmations each day. I am always better than I think I am and I can do all thing through
Christ who gives me strength and creativity. I am a winner and so are you!
