There is power in the spoken word. When someone speaks positive words over you it has an effect. Think of the last time you received praise from someone you respected, admired, or loved. Think of a time when someone recognized something about you: a talent, a quality, or an accomplishment. I remember hearing from a co-worker that I respected, “You are ready for a promotion it is only a matter a time.” The co-worker went on to explain some recent work and ideas I had implemented. I felt something grow inside of me. It was my confidence and belief in myself. All of a sudden I felt worthy and capable of doing even greater work. Positive words of affirmation spoken at the right time can ignite someone on a course for success.
Imagine raising children in an environment where positive words are spoken over them. Children do not know what they are good at, what their talents are, what success looks like, and the potential and worth they have. Speaking life -giving words over them will build their confidence, belief in their abilities, and make sure they know they have worth. Unfortunately, in today’s society our children will face a lot of negative words spoken to them at school by peers and posted about them on social media. As parents we have the ability to control whether our children will be shaped by positive or negative words.
Here are positive words every parent should speak to their child that they will understand.
