HE LIFTS US UP: Venomous Words

Too many people feel that abuse is only when bruises are evident. But I can tell you that words cause wounds as deep as physical abuse. And though many may not realize the abuse, the victims know the abuse, harassment, and intimidation behind the words.

Venomous words…
was the thought that came to me.
Spreading poison…
but no wounds to see.
And like a serpent…
as its next victim it seeks.
These words are poisonous…
causing damage by those who speak.
For words have power…
to build up or destroy.
And many are wounded…
as victims of abusers’ ploy.
For these cunning abusers…
secretly hide behind closed doors.
Invisibly stabbing their victims…
embedding poison and more.
Cause they strike in secret…
like a snake slivering in the night.
With venomous words causing damage…
as they are spoken out of sight.
But God sees and hears all…
and knows the poison that is spread.
And I can tell each of you…
these words you will one day dread.
For nothing is hidden…
including each word and its wound.
So beware what you speak…
for you will answer for it soon.

Dear Lord, purify our hearts so that our words will be pure. That only words that build up and never cut down will be spoken. That positive words will be garnish the path that we walk with beauty instead of venom of deadly proportions that we have experienced. Heal our wounds down to the depths of our spirits and souls that have been inflicted upon us by these venomous words spoken into our lives. Teach us to speak positive to our children and others so we will no longer inflict wounds on others… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    So true. Bruises and cuts will disappear but words cut into the heart, mind, and soul. They can can become in bedded and last a life time!
