“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).
PROFANITY IS A SUCKER PUNCH. These are words typically used to abuse women and children.
I was invited to watch a Ted Talk. I was told it would inspire me. At 35 seconds into it, the “expert” spoke words meant to shock, and not inspire.
Neuroscience “experts” say profanity does something powerful to our brain so that we will hear — so that we will “wake-up.”
If you PUNCH people in the face enough, they will switch off and go numb, or they will run away, report you, or become like their abuser.
From the online dictionary: suck·er punch: noun – 1.an unexpected punch or blow.
verb – 1. hit (someone) with an unexpected punch or blow. “Joe sucker-punched him and knocked him out”
I invite you to pray and declare with me: Dear Lord, may the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing and acceptable in Your sight, for You are my strength and my redeemer. By Your grace, I have come out of the darkness and into the light, Your light! And my words reflect that. Thank You, Lord! Amen.
