Your words shape your destiny

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” – John 1:1

In a way, everything that ever exists in this world was first a word. What you call the Universe is made up of words, not atoms. The people you have loved and lost you keep alive by using words.

What you think you are, what others think of you… words.

What you tell yourself, what you tell others… words.

If words didn’t exist, we wouldn’t be much. Maybe we wouldn’t be anything at all.

They say that what separates us from animals is our limitless capability to become. Our unending quest to conquer all the mountains that we stumble upon, real or imaginary.

We are human because we have dedicated our time on this earth to becoming more than what we already are.

And we use words for that.

We imagine perfection and we use words to make it feel real. We use words to tell others what we feel like. We use words to tell strangers about all the things that should make us be more than that. We use words to describe someone’s smile in a way that stops even a heart-breaker’s heart.

We use words to define ourselves. We use words to tell others that, “I am….” We use words to let others that we are alive. We use words because we are mortal, and we hate it, and we wish we’d live forever.

Forever. Such a funny word. Forever does not exist, but we made up a word to describe it, because words are our only invention that can give us a sense of immortality. That some part of us will endure long after we are gone.

Words. We use them to feel less alone when our souls are breaking under the weight of a destiny we do not understand.

Words. We use them to describe dreams like the way air seems to burn in the desert. We use words to let other know how much they mean to us, to let them know that we couldn’t have been who we are without them.

Words. They are the most powerful tool ever discovered. You can nudge the world a bit whenever you use the right words, in just the right order, at the right time.

Words…

Thank you so much for allowing me to write these words and share them with the world…

  1. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, John 1:14
    Luke 17 confirms the Word is within the INDIVIDUAL by these words,
    And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation:
    Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

  2. AMEN! 🙏 Love your writing, and you’ll only get better.

    Also fellow King not sure if you know this but the believers in Him (Jesus) we will live forever, we are saved by Faith not by sight… It Is Written. ✍️📜💯

    “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.”
    ‭‭—John‬ ‭6:47‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”
    ‭‭—1 John‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
    —‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  3. The rest of the passage in John is important for context. Verse 2: “2 He (the Word) was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness,and the darkness has not overcome it.” (New International Version)
    This passage at the beginning of John speaks of Jesus being the Word. The Word was God– Jesus is not “a” god, but THE God, God the Son. It’s a very theologically packed, beautiful passage. Funny I read it here; I just read it this morning.

    • There’s more to Jesus than that.
      But as many as received him, to them gave he POWER TO BECOME the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
      Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
      John 1:12-13

      It gets even more promising expanding on those verses in the Revelation of Jesus Christ 3:21.
      To him that overcomes will I grant to SIT WITH ME in my throne, even as I ALSO OVERCAME, and AM set down with my Father in his throne.

      In other words, the promise is, those who DO overcome, become God with God, following the example of Jesus, the Captain of the Faith.

      We overcome, learning how to become co-Creators with God while we’re in the Flesh in the World, Day by Day, when it’s called TODAY.
      We will make mistakes and sin. Those are forgiven in Christ Jesus if we don’t give up in this Faithless World with such a great cloud of Witnesses believing different things about God.

      As it is written, For he spoke in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
      And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
      Seeing therefore it remains that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
      Again, he limits a certain day, saying in David, TODAY, after so long a time; as it is said, TODAY if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
      Hebrews 4
      Isaiah saw a similar vision outlined in the last Chapter 66 of his Book;
      Thus says the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
      For all those things has my hand made, and those things have been, says the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.

      If one believes that vision by Faith, it tells us the Holy Land is the Whole Earth, not just that small sliver of land over which so much blood has been shed by men.

      But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
      Matthew 4:4

      Faith without acting on the Faith with works is Dead.

      • I agree with your last sentiment about acting on our faith, as that is what the book of James highlights. Actions come from a relationship with God, not done TO gain a saving relationship with Him.

        As for becoming God, I disagree, but am glad we can dialogue without it getting nasty. Thank you for your comment!

        • For the purpose of dialogue, what does this line say to you?
          “To him that overcomes will I grant to SIT WITH ME in my throne, even as I ALSO OVERCAME, and AM set down with my Father in his throne.”
