Words

I heard this song on the radio and i love it. It tells so much. The song is Words by Hawk Nelson. Here are the lyrics:

“Words”

They’ve made me feel like a prisoner
They’ve made me feel set free
They’ve made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king
They’ve lifted my heart
To places I’d never been
And they’ve dragged me down
Back to where I began
Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out
Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
You can heal the heartache
Speak over the fear
(Speak over the fear)
God, Your voice is the only thing
We need to hear
(We need to hear)
Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts or
Put it out
Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)
Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
I wanna speak Your love
Not just another noise
Oh, I wanna be Your light I wanna be Your voice
Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)
Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)
Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts
Or put it out
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
The part in the song that says “i dont want to say a word. Unless it points the world back to you” These wordss i think are similar to the Donut story. Not all messages need to be taught through words. Also I’m sure most of you kno the saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” That is NOT true at all. Words hurt mentally and spiritaully and they do way more damage than a punch or kick. But words also help build people up (encouragement). They also push people out of their comfort zones or make them more conceited.
