Bless or Curse?

"In order to gain the most benefit from blessing, you will have to give up or cut way down on the one thing that negates it: cursing. This doesn’t mean swearing or saying “bad” words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead of appreciating; and worrying instead of anticipating with trust. Whenever any of these are done they tend to cancel out some of the effects of blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will be and the longer it will take to get the good from a blessing. On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing will do."~ Serge Kahili King

  1. "...worrying instead of anticipating with trust" ahhh yes... how difficult that has been for me to learn, how i have fought the desire to trust for so long and now i feel the need to let myself fall and trust that God will catch me and carry me to rest in a soft place...

    love the post... perhaps because i so needed to read it...
