The words cut
Penetrating deeply

I can’t escape them
They surround me
Relentlessly attacking

I fall
I cry
I near despair

Someone else is speaking.
Straining, I listen

His Words
Though silent
Interrupt the torrent

Hope pours in

Bathing my soul

I am safe
Completely protected

I will trust His Words
Though the others are confident

I will cling to His Words
Though the others still echo in my mind

I will believe His Words
For they are full of life

Proverbs 12:18,“There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Proverbs 15:4,“A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but perversion in it crushes the spirit.”
John 1:1,“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Psalm 119:28,“My soul weeps because of grief; strengthen me according to Your word.”
Proverbs 30:5,“Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”

    I love this, yes doubt, lies, focus on the wrong I see this all of as part of the armor of the shield of faith! Faith, trust, confidence that he will shield us in nagging, agonizing, destructive thoughts! Thank you for the post! ❤️
