The LORD is near unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit.
Hurtful words can cut deep. I am a big feeler, so the power of words have a great impact on me. I love the second verse of this song, and I have prayed these words before.
There’s no hurt, no scars or bruise,There’s not a wound too deep for you. Cause You’re everything you say you are. You’re bigger than a broken heart.So hear me now. Hear me now I’m Calling.God come quickly, Only you can save me.Will you lead me where the light is?God be with me. Don’t know where I’m going.Will you lead me where the light? I’ve been living in the dark. I’ve been looking for daylight. You’re my daylight.So God come quickly. Only you can save me, and lead me where the light is. -Dan Bremnes Where the Light is
I far too often rewind hurtful words someone has spoken and replay them over and over in my mind. I know I need to let go of the pain and give it to God, so that He can heal my heart. I also need to remember the power of my own words, and use my words to build up, and not cut or tear down. May I remember that everyone is fighting some sort of battle, and may I use my words encourage and build others up.
