Voicemail

My cell phone

tells me my voice mailbox is almost full

 

That I need to delete some messages

in order to receive more

 

But I don’t want to

 

For there were points in time

when people I love and care about

 

left me messages

and they left an impression

on me

 

Dates and times frozen

 

With words of affirmation

of light

of life

of encouragement

 

to build up

 

 

saved in my little rectangular hip magnet

 

 

And I view these words

as the very love of God

spoken to my heart

 

On everyday days

at high points

at the lowest points

 

Thank you, dear ones,

for minutes spared

to lift up a sister

 

May my words, Lord,

bring the same

encouragement

 

whether spoken

written

or typed

– Susie Stewart

 

So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.

– 1 Thessalonians 5:10,11 (MSG)

 

What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.

– Proverbs 18:21 (GNT)

 

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweet and delightful to the soul and healing to the body.

– Proverbs 16:24 (AMP)

 

Here are some of those messages ….

 

 

* Well, now I have some on video!  Maybe I can make some room for more now. 😉

  1. If you have an iPhone you can save those messages in your voice memo section so you can make room for more voicemails! And yes, encouraging words are priceless. I listen to mine over and over again also!
