"Speak Life" by tobyMac

Tiffanie's Take

“You can do it. I believe in you.”

You see, I was just stressed. It had been one of those days where nothing seemed to go the way I expected it to. In the middle of a rant to my husband, he stopped me and said those words above. Eight simple words. That was all that it took for my mind set to be changed. I went from thinking negative thoughts to thinking in a more positive light all thanks to a few small words of encouragement.

We live in a world where we are bombarded by negativity.  Just turn on the TV or scroll through your Facebook newsfeed and you’re bound to see it. There is something we can do to change all of that though, we can speak life.

Instead of speaking words that tear down, we can choose to speak words that build others up. Instead of criticizing, we can compliment. Instead of complaining, we can be thankful.

Toby Mac says in his new song, Speak Life, these words:

We can turn a heart with the words we say.

Mountains crumble with every syllable.

Hope can live or die

Every word you speak has power. Will you use your words to speak life?

"Speak Life" Lyrics
 

Somedays life feels perfect
Other days it just ain't workin
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between

Though it's crazy, amazing
We can turn our hearts with the words we say
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Broken, Live or die

So speak Life, speak Life
Through the deadest darkest night
Speak Life, Speak Life
When the sun won't shine and you don't know why
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak... 
You speak Life, You speak Life

Someday the tongue gets twisted
Other days my thoughts just fall apart
I do, I don't, I will, I won't
It's like I'm drowning in the deep

Well it crazy to imagine
Words from our lips as the arms of compassion
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Broken, Live or die

So speak Life, speak Life
Through the deadest darkest night
Speak Life, Speak Life
When the sun won't shine and you don't know why
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak... 
You speak Life, You speak Life

Lift your head a little higher
Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain
When you speak life with the words you say

Raise your thoughts a little higher
Use your words to inspire
Trouble falls like rain
When you speak life with the things you say

Lift your head a little higher
Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain
When you speak life with the words you say

So speak Life, speak Life
Through the deadest darkest night
Speak Life, Speak Life
When the sun won't shine and you don't know why
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak... 
You speak Life, You speak Life
You speak Life, You speak Life

Somedays life feels perfect
