The Power of Words

Katy Steele Barclay

Katy quote Ftr 1741879434Everybody loves the local muffin shop. Not only are the pastries delicious, but the owner is a Christian, and the muffin shop is her ministry. A space on one wall is dedicated to encouraging words, inspiring thoughts, and the words of Jesus. The owner chooses quotes and writes them on colorful index cards. Customers who see a quote they like are welcome to take it home.

I have never left the muffin shop without one or more cards in hand. Sometimes I give them away to encourage others. I have kept the A. W. Tozer quote pictured here in my car and have read it over and over as a reminder to take big chances.

Let my words and my thoughts be pleasing to you, Lord.
Psalm 19:14a (CEV)

God tells us that words have the power to bring life or death. What favorite quotes could you pass along to offer hope and encouragement to others?
