When the great artists of history created
magnificent sculptures they all began their creation with a single chisel
strike. As these artisans worked they
were motivated by an image they desired the stone to reveal.
Your words are like a chisel that will create a
verbal sculpture. With each word you release you are sculpting a reality. It is
not too late to stop the negative chiseling and rework this existing situation
to produce something beautiful that will reflect the heart of God instead of
disappointment and fear. There is still time and enough undefined stone left to
chisel a different outcome.
Your failed circumstance, or even your greatest
success, is not the image you are to use to word-sculpt your future. You were created in the image of God – that
is image you are to draw your inspiration from.
This means all areas of your life have a God-image. Your family has a God-image. You employment has a God-image. Your self-worth has a God-image. Don’t sculpt your conversations with words contrary
to how God sees you and your circumstances.
As you speak these words you will create a work of beauty that will
reveal God’s heart for you and for all who come to view your life.
