Speak Life – Remedial Training

HeartI did say I was going to post each day, one of four devotionals which are from Brady Boyd’s Speak Life Devotional. But I’ve had to slow down really meditate on each message I am trying to get into my heart, mind and spirit! So let’s review before we conclude with Day 4. For the full daily devotional, click on each “day.”

Day 1 I will speak words that are relevant, authentic, life giving, and wise, and I will rarely—if ever—stick my foot in my mouth. I will be someone who blesses, not curses, with the words I speak …

Scriptures: “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Ephesians 4:29 ESV

“pray without ceasing,” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 ESV

Day 2 I want to speak words that gladden the heart of God.

Scriptures: “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” Colossians 4:6 ESV

“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven….” Luke 6:37 ESV

Day 3 When we walk through our days with a “Speak, Lord” on our lips, leaning in to hear the whispers of heaven, longing to fulfill the wishes of God, God looks at us and says, “You’ll never go hungry from this moment forward. You’ll always be satisfied in me.”

Scriptures: “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,” 1 Peter‬ ‭1:15‬ ‭ESV‬‬

This week, I’ve been a bit obsessed with TobyMac’s song, Speak Life (it’s on Day 1) as well as wanting to learn more about Brady Boyd. I have reached out to Pastor Boyd, but haven’t heard back from him. He’s over a huge church, so it’s no surprise. While looking at what motivated these two men to write about Speaking Life, I found a short YouTube video with TobyMac explaining why he wrote this song. It’s helping me and I hope it helps you:
