I promise to share from my heart and keep it simple @kemi_odutayo Holy Spirit of my PapaGod?Please do your thing.Let my words be backed by your power.This tweet cast must glorify God. ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Open eyes. Prepare hearts. Change lives. Thank you Lord. Love you. ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Now, dear one, you may not know it but U R powerful &creative. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

You just have to understand & believe one thing with all your heart:You are created in the image of the Almighty God!#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Take a moment. Let that sink in. When God looks in the mirror in the morning, he sees you! #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Isn't that just mind-blowing? And you know that God is All powerful and incredibly creative. Right? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

You just need to look at nature to appreciate His skills.#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

And as a re-born child of a God, His life force, His spiritual DNA is in you! Empowering you!#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

So this means that what He did during Creation week, you can do too through Jesus Christ in you. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Yes! You can create your world! The exact same way He did!#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

And how did God create the world and all that is in it? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Yes, He SPOKE it into being! He used WORDS! #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

And you have this same power in your mouth. But most of the time we waste it talking carelessly. Shame shame. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Look back over the last couple of hours of your life. What have you been saying? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

What have you been 'creating' with the words of your mouth? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Can you look back and say, like God did, that it is "Good". ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

If we have been talking carelessly, tweeting without thinking, forgetting the power of our words, then anxious we must be.#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

If you don't like your life right now, one quick tip is to check what you have been saying. ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Now, let's drill down to our relationships. And here I want us to see our words as seeds being sown into the soil of our lives.  #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

I shared a while back that soul mates are not born, they are grown. And I believe that our words are a vital ‘fertiliser’ in this process.  #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo.

My MGM was not my soul mate when I married him. Of course I thought he was but soon discovered the sad truth. Lol! #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

But over time, we 'matured up' into soul mates & let me share 1 of the small but big secrets of our 22yr old marriage#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

I started calling my husband my mighty good man – MGM – in 2009 when I started blogging. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

It wasn't anything spiritual to be honest but in 2012 when my PapaGod gave me a new name Salt #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

He said to me 'and as you call your husband so shall he be to you': Your mighty good man. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

You see, the same power God gave Adam in Genesis 2:19, he has given us. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo ‘

‘ And…God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

..And whatsoever Adam called every living creature that was its name. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

As I called my husband my mighty good man, that’s what he became.I sowed good seeds& I’m enjoying d fruit of my mouth#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

What are your words over your spouse creating for you? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Do you mind what you say over him or her? Or you just speak carelessly? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Pet names can be very powerful you know?#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Find one that is endearing yet speaks out what you wish to 'enjoy' from your spouse. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Do U want your wife to be your Jewel of inestimable value?Start sowing kind sweet words into her life and start calling her 'My Jewel'  today. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Want your husband to be sweeter? Call him 'Honey'.Don't want yr spouse 2 be childish!Stop calling him/her"babe"!Lol!#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Seriously it works.  For if we are truly walking in the Spirit our words pack a powerful punch. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

They may seem like ordinary words but from our spirit-infused mouths, they must run extraordinary errands for us. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

In relationships, we must think before we speak. If you don’t want to see it, do not say it. Not over your spouse. Not over your kids! ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Let your words be seasoned with salt always. You know I had to add that in somewhere. *smiling* #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Don't hurt someone permanently with your words cos you are temporarily mad at him or her#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Think, would Jesus say this? And even if he would, would he say it THIS way? Would He say it NOW in public? #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

If your answer is "no" take a breath, take a moment, rethink your words. Or better still say nothing.#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

So please, let's stop d carelessness. Be mindful of our words.With them, we are creating our worlds &determining d course of our relationships. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Remember also, the mouth that praises God cannot be the one that swears like a sailor. Be mindful of the songs you sing too. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

Some lyrics, though cool are not becoming of a child of God. Just saying. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

@Kemiodutayo, thank you for having me. I have shared from my heart. I pray it blesses even just one person.#ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

From this day, I pray we harvest good from the words we sow. I pray we mind how we speak.  #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

See, each act (and every word uttered) is being recorded in d Book of Life. If your tape is played back now, will you be proud? Selah. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo

I blog @ www.thesaltchronicles.com.

Hope you come by soon. Let’s muse together. In the meantime, know this: God is especially fond of you. #ListenUp @kemi_odutayo
