I remember being in elementary school. I was coming back from a fire drill and standing in line waiting to go back into the classroom. A few of the kids were standing around talking and they asked me if I was a virgin. Now, I am maybe in the 4th or 5th grade (10 or 11 years old) at that time. The shy girl who kept to herself mostly. I had no clue what that word was, so I just said yes. That day I became the laughing-stock!
Maybe you have felt like that sometime in your life. Possibly someone made you feel so small. Maybe you were the child or adult where the words stung you and you walked away. Maybe you were the one whom the word stung you and you wanted to get even and hurt them back. Either way the words got to you!
I can recount many days were I felt that sting right to my heart. Kids can be pretty mean, not only kids but adults as well. Our words can hurt! There is power in the tongue. Words can bless or they curse. We don’t realize what words can actually do. Our words have an effect on others.
We all were created with a heart and to love one another. It is in our DNA to love. So, why do we say hurtful things to one another? Yes, you may have been hurt by loved ones, family, friends, and possibly some random person on your path. But, we are responsible for our words.
Gods word says to: BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO MISTREAT YOU – LUKE 6:28
God wants to heal us of hurtful words that were spoken. So I am going to pray for you….
Father, I ask that you would come now and heal any broken wounds from words that were spoken over their life. I break every lie that has come against you. I declare those words be broken in Jesus name! ~amen!
