Making Conversation Intentional

Thanks to a friend of mine, I am passing on this list of ideas to help make your conversations intentional. So much of our time is spent in idle talk. As you go about your day today, make the most of it.

How was your week?

What was encouraging about it?
~ did you find yourself remembering God in those moments?
~ how did you express your gratefulness to him for this/these encouragements?
What was challenging for you this past week?
~ what was your initial response to the challenge?
~ what were your thoughts of God in this?
~ any Scripture your mind ran to or you purposed to meditate on?
What are you struggling with right now?
How did you see God at work?
What did your time with the Lord look like?
~ what are you reading/learning/memorizing?
Did you pray? Did you pray often?
~ did you have answered prayer?
Any opportunities to share Christ with someone or at least talk about Him/His working in your life?
How's your heart?
How is your thought life?
What are your thoughts regarding _______________?
How can I pray for you this coming week?
What would be an encouragement to you this week?

Look for part II soon...

Excellent questions! If we would all be so intentional in our conversations, what an encouraging difference our words would make to give God glory.
