I found myself thinking of this song by R kelly and Sparkle “Be careful what you say”.
Be careful what you say to me has been circling around in my head. Normally I have thick skin. There are times when people words do get through my wall. They tend to hit me differently. I grew up with the notion words will never hurt. The saying sticks and stones may break my bones but word will never hurt. Well that is a bunch of hog wash.
Psalms 52:2 your tongue is like a sharp razor. The tongue is a deadly weapon which can slice through a heart without much effort. The words coming out of the mouth leaves a blood trail from the hearer back to the speaker.
In the Bible James 1:19 God tells us to be quick to listen and slow to speak. Our anger can tear apart a person just with words. Today my heart was stabbed multiple times in a span of five minutes. There is blood pouring out every where.
I had to slam that door shut with nails and cement it. I am not sure if I can come back from this. These words hit me like a semi truck going 100 miles an hour.
I felt like crying not just because of what was said but how it was said. I knew if I would succumb to these words, I would be in a space I should not be in. With that being said I had to let my spiritual mind take over. Sometimes we have to close the door shut on people. I can forgive but will not forget. There are lines that should Never be cross.
