Week 15 – The Power of Our Words

My dear friend and former Bible study leader, Edith McReynolds, may have been the first to teach me about the power of our words.  If I said something like, “I died laughing”, she’d correct me immediately and ask me if that was what I was trying to manifest!  To this day, I hear Edith’s voice in my head (even though she’s now living in another state LOL) when I say something that doesn’t align with what I really want, or with the Scriptures.

Week 15’s Master Key lesson was difficult for me to absorb.  I read it over and over and over.  Fortunately, the Fabulous Davene also recorded the lesson, so I played it over and over and over while doing dishes, cooking, folding laundry, etc.  But once I GOT IT, it was so awesome!

There is SO much “meat” in this lesson, but let me focus on this:  Our words are POWERFUL!

Haanel writes, in 15-20:  “…we know that the word is a thought form and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are EXACT, that they are put together CAREFULLY, and because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.”  [emphasis mine]

and in 15-22: “Words may become mental places that will live forever, or they may become shacks which the first breeze will carry away.”



What kind of world are we building with our words?  How are we programming our children to think of themselves?  How do we speak about ourselves?  Our spouse?  Our finances?

Again, thanks to Edith, this is not a new concept for me, but it reverberated LOUDLY with this lesson!  So what do the scriptures have to say on this topic?  Amazing stuff.   Powerful stuff!

Mark 11:23  Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

Matthew 15:11 It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”

Luke 6:45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[a] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks  [which brings us back to controlling our thoughts, ala the 7 day mental diet, aka 7 Days to a New You, available for free in the sidebar, over there ====> ]

Ephesians 4:29 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.

Matthew 12:36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak [YIKES!!!]

Matthew 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.  [Helpful hint:  choose life 🙂 ]

Proverbs 15:4  A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

I could continue, but you either get the point or you don’t. What-Your-Words-Quote-300x199 We must control our thoughts, because our thoughts will become words – and words have POWER!!   This is SO key to a successful life and a happy family, I pray you all get it and set a guard on your lips.  🙂


Be blessed and be a blessing,


Week 14 – We’re on a break! :)

We had a week off from the live webinars and such this week and instead, we were assigned to watch a movie (or two or three) from a prescribed list.

We had a hard time finding some of them, but we found and watched two while we stayed indoors avoiding the floods and mud and muck to the extent possible.

The first was Cool Runnings, about the Jamaican bobsled team getting into the Olympics.  The movie was touching and funny – but showed so clearly the various things we’ve been focused on in the MasterKey Experience!  They had a clear purpose backed by a burning desire.  They developed a plan of action.  They persisted.  They had a mastermind!  They didn’t win – but they were wildly successful anyway.  What an inspiration!

We also watched October Sky, which followed the story of some teens from a coal mining town on their quest to build a rocket (many, actually).  Again, the true story was inspiring, but it once again highlighted the basics of our MasterKey studies.  The young men had a clear purpose and they were all in harmony.  They had a burning desire.  They developed a plan of action and a mastermind group.  Even when things went badly, they were persistent.  One of the best parts of the movie was the “where are they now” clips at the end – showing that each of them had become successful beyond their wildest dreams.  They didn’t say this, but I know that they were successes because they learned to apply the lessons taught them as teens.

Great homework assignment, Mark and Davene!  It was one my husband shared with me and enjoyed as much as I did!

Blessings –


Week 13 – An MKMMA Chistmas

I hope that everyone has had a blessed holiday season, whatever holiday(s) you celebrate, but for us, it’s all about the birth of a King long ago and far away.

It’s been a tough time in Eastern Oklahoma (and elsewhere) due to crazy weather – record warmth followed by record blasting rain and floods, while others dealt with tornadoes, hail, sleet and copious amounts of ice.

Here at our farm, we had 9.7 inches of rain the weekend following Christmas with flash floods all around.  That’s 1/4 of our “normal” rainfall for the year in just two days.  But normal doesn’t count for much as far as 2015 went as we had nearly double the normal annual rainfall, topping out the year at more than 80 inches!!

So, how does this pertain to MKMMA, you might wonder?  Scroll 3 was particular fitting – I persist.  I win.  Day to day chores were hard to do with that amount of rain (and corresponding mud!!) but one step at a time, we got the animals fed, got the eggs gathered, and we stayed warm and dry when so many did not.

We are focusing on gratitude everyday… and even in the midst of the storm, I can find SO many things for which to be grateful!  Including the fact that we didn’t have to water ANY of the animals.  Hahahaha!

Blessings to you all –
