From what place have you been speaking to others? Where are you standing?
The universe is always speaking to us, either through someone or something, reminding us to look around, to stop, to feel, to touch, to believe, and to speak.
I think the best and the most beautiful human characteristic is when one speaks from the heart with love.
You may be a shy, timid individual, who’s afraid of rejection and conflict — not expressing your feelings or your beliefs, allowing fear to paralyze you and hold you as a prisoner.
Or maybe you are an audacious person who speaks his/her mind with boldness and interacts with others in truth and self assurance. Though you encounter people who may not agree with you, you place a high value on living out the truth in love, because you believe that lovealways wins. Though we’re all blessed with different gifts, I think it’s a great quality to be blessed with affirming boldness. I salute you! It takes enormous courage to be yourself and speak your mind without fear. Not everyone can do that.
Indeed, anyone who believes in God, reads His word and actively strives to obey it can confidently speak from God’s platform. Yet God’s word reminds us to stop for a moment and take care not to judge, but rather to give one another a chance to speak and to be heard.
Have you ever wished that the good hearted people would be the ones who are bold and outspoken about their beliefs? They don’t pretend who they are and their deeds are pure from the heart. They know their truth, and they see with God’s perspective. When they are emboldened to speak truth with their own voice, God’s will is revealed.
It has been said, ”Kneel down and listen to the heartbeat of God. Then, and only then, can the house of lovespeak to the house of fear, from God’s sanctuary into the depth your being. After you embrace his love, then speak to others from that place.”
We must remember that when we speak from our hearts with love, people will hear us with theirs. They may witness that their house of fear has replaced with God’s dwelling place.
Paul the apostle of Christ says in [Ephesians 4:15]
“…, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
And David asked the Lord in prayer, as I do:
“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.” AMEN! [Psalm 86:11]
