Words. 

We are made in the image of a God who spoke light into existence. Isn’t that amazing? “Let there be light.” And there was light. 

Being made in His image means that we resemble Him. (Although He never resembles us, and that is an important distinction – and maybe worth a blog post someday.)

We resemble Him when we love people.
We resemble Him when we enjoy good things.
We resemble Him when we experience emotions.

We resemble Him when we…speak. 

While we lack the ability to create things like light, we still have an ability to create with words. “I’m a failure.” “You’re beautiful.” “Mommy’s right here.” 

Isn’t that incredible?? We are constantly creating with our words. Creating negativity or creating confidence or creating safety…

It’s tricky to be constantly mindful of what my words are creating but as a mother and a person who loves people, I want to get MUCH better at treating my words like a superpower that I only use for good. ;)
