Using Our Words to Bring Healing, Life, & Encouragment
Today's episode is on using our tongues, the words we speak to bring healing, life, and encouragement to others!  Most of the work I do as a counselor is on helping people heal from emotional abuse.  Emotional abuse occurs when people fail to exercise spiritual discipline, self-control, and compassion when communicating.  Emotional abuse is on a spectrum of severity, regardless of the level of use,  it is damaging to the mind, body, and soul.  People who have been emotionally abused require great healing measures to find peace over these unfortunate and painful situations.  Today we talk about what the Bible says about the power of our tongues!  Proverbs 18:21 "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."
