“Amy, I love you!” Four small words that forever changed my life. Imagine I’d said, “I’m not too sure I love you.” Change a few words and you change my entire future.

Words can and will forever shape your future. The words you speak have power to create belief, mold confidence, build esteem, declare what’s on your heart, and shape the trajectory of your life.

What are you speaking into yourself and those around you?

The word SHALOM is often thought to mean peace. In fact it means a lot more than peace. According to Strong’s Concordance 7965 Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect, and full.

What a great word to speak over someone or even into yourself. Today I speak and declare SHALOM over your life and encourage you to choose your words wisely.

Be intentional in how you speak; your future and the future of those around you is riding on it.
