The other afternoon, my 4-year-old nephew stuck his head out the door and told me I looked beautiful standing there on the patio. Out of nowhere, this sweet little boy took me by surprise and crowned me with a blessing. How powerful words can be and they don’t cost a thing!

That’s what I love about writing and creating stories. It wasn’t, and then it was. There was nothing, then there was a story. Out of thin air.

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:1-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Jesus is the Word – the first word. God always was, and he created with his words.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said…”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1:1-3‬ a NLT‬‬

Words. Something out of nothing. Pure magic. And we all have access to creating powerful messages when we open our mouths (or laptops or hands).

What will you communicate next?
