HE LIFTS US UP: Verbal and Emotional Abuse… the Damage Left Behind

Thoughts of these abuses have been repeatedly coming to me the last few days. The problem is that so many people still do not believe that verbal and emotional abuse is significant. They think that unless bruises are evident then the abuse was not relevant. However, these people are so wrong! Most of these abuses are hidden from view but they are still there and the victim not only hears the hidden meaning, but they feel the stabs of these wounding words…

Verbal and emotional abuse…
keep coming to my mind.

But many don’t believe…
the damage left behind.
But words can build up…
or words can harm.
And many are spoken…
with deceptive charm.
With abusive daggers…
hidden deep beneath.
It’s the abuser’s ploy…
of hidden deceit.
But the average onlooker…
thinks all is great.
While the abuse victims…
recognize their hidden fate.
For much is hidden…
beneath the words meaning.
Cause they are linked to others…
that have been so demeaning.
So the victim knows…
and feels daggers thrown.
Even when others hear it…
and its intent is not known.
Only to the victim…
is the abusive threat received.
For though his anger’s hidden…
to the victim the threat’s believed.

Dear Lord, only You know why these thoughts keep coming to me. I ask you to open the hearts of  all to not only receive You but to have compassion and empathy for all victims of abuse. I pray that the wounds of abuse to the hearts, souls and spirits of all victims will be understood and no longer negated by others. That total healing and restoration will be poured out by You for all victims across the land… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3

    I agree and wish someone would tell my father, stepmother and sister and brother-in-law that. Thank you for this post. It is nice to know I am not alone in thinking this.

      You are not alone!! So many of us have suffered the verbal and emotional abuse of others who do not even realize it. My entire book, The Walking Wounded, is about my journey through all of these abuses and the devastating effects… until God revealed Himself in my life. I pray that one day your family will read it and God will touch their lives to change. Nothing is impossible with God! I will be praying for you!
