Sometimes we are the tool God chooses to encourage others.
What words will you select today?
Our words can build others up.
Our words can refresh others, like a fountain. Every time I see a water fountain, I think about the impact of my words.
The words we select are completely our choice. We don't get to blame our spouse, roommate, professor, parents, neighbor, pets or others for a poorly selected word.
The words I select are deliberate at all times. There are no accidental words.
My words are a reflection of my heart.
"A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Luke 6:45
What is your heart full of?
Do you complain? Your heart may be full of ungratefulness.
Do you gossip? Your heart may be full of jealousy and envy.
Do you make fun of people? Your heart may be full of you.
A life full of Jesus will point others to Him.
Psalm 19:14 says, "May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."

About Forest Road UMC

forest-road-umc-pic-copyAbout Forest Road UMC

The history of Forest Road United Methodist Church chronicles the Christian Faith and the faithful living of many men, women and children.

The structure of our church tells the story of the heartfelt faith that is our true history. Every window reveals our dependence on the Light of the World. Each brick shows the importance of each participant in our church community and our need for each other. The roof reminds us of the grace which protects and covers us. The spire points to the love of God which entered out midst through Christ’s early life. The cross proclaims the price of our freedom from sin, and its emptiness celebrates that the One who died for us could not be bound by death. His cross is empty as is His burial place. Every stair reminds us that the journey of faith both climbs and descends. Our doors declare that we embrace all people, those that come seeking knowledge, serving, questioning, celebrating ….

Like the children’s rhyme where you make a church building with your hands and open the doors and “see all the people”, when you open the doors and “see all the people” at Forest Road UMC, you’ll see the true church – a community of people who have experienced certainty and confusion, elation and pain, wonder and worry. All are welcome here. Most importantly, God as we know him in Jesus Christ, welcomes all.

“Open Hearts…

Open Minds…

Open Doors”
