Abusive Words…

Abusive words…
filled with hate.
Aimed to harm…
with damage great.

Verbal abuse…
harms many people.
Plus other abuses…
hurt even deeper.

For words cut deep…
like a knife.
Affecting many…
through their life.

And actions harm…
with words unspoken.
Damaging victims…
with many broken.

Anger, hatred,
violence and more.
Hurting victims…
like many before.

So many wounded…
from so much abuse.
It’s time to speak out…
and put our voices to use.

    • I totally understand what you are saying. I have also heard every one of those words and others. It is so sad that abusers do that. I really appreciate your encouraging words and support. Blessings! 🙂

  1. This is a poem The Lord gave to me on 9/26/13. Thought it might help us all at this point in time.

    From the ashes
    Path of brokenness & wholeness

    Wounds and words can cut so deep
    And, pain can become so unbearable it seems one cannot make it another moment
    But, God makes a way where there appears to be no way
    He is the God of all flesh
    He is the lover of our soul
    He makes everything beautiful and adds no sorrow
    For Ashes of our lives are formed into His creation
    And, the fresh and new is birthed out of the pain
    It is a path of brokenness to wholeness

    My prayer is that pain and hurt would be turned to your gain…Romans 8:28

    • Wow… I love it. I was going to use it later but I think I will make it a “guest post” for tomorrow morning. Very fitting for the release of my ebook, The Walking Wounded: The Path from Brokenness to Wholeness.
      Thanks and many blessings, my dear friend!

  2. Thank you for sharing.
    I have suffered bullying and abuse as an adult and as a child.
    Not good enough became something I started to Beleive. Fat also. Then came Anorexia.
    Everyday is a battle, but I am a fighter and I can now shut out what I don’t want to hear.
    To anyone reading this!
    Know that you can do it!
    The power is within you!


    Please don’t give up on you!

    Big Love

    • Wow…Thank you so much KLove for the encouraging addition. Yes, we can overcome the abuse that we have endured. Don’t listen to the lies!!! Those words that we are not good enough, all those negative words—ALL Lies…
      The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy… but he is already defeated. We are all children of God and we will overcome!! Thanks KLove… Many blessings to you, my friend!!!!!!

  3. Love, trust and respect
    That’s what we have to look forward to
    Years of hurt and harm gone
    As the life in Christ begins to restore
    And, all that God has promised becomes reality
    Today, let us lay hold of hope and all that’s ours
    For God’s promises are yes and amen

    • Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. Yes, sarcasm is a huge problem. I lived with sarcasm everyday…till we split up and then found out it was all true. I learned, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Thanks again and God bless!!

    • You are so right. People do not understand the Power of the Spoken Word and what it does to others. These words really do “cut like a knife.” Thanks for the support, my friend. Many blessings to you!!

    • Shade, thank you so much for the nomination. I really appreciate your support and am greatly honored and humbled by it. However, I have felt that I can not take credit as I thank God everyday for the words that He gives me. I appreciate your encouragement but have decided to remain an “award free” blog. Thanks again and may God pour His blessings onto you, my sister!

  5. Intense post. Truth. I may have mentioned to you a while back about a book I read entitled “No Visible Wounds” … obviously about psychological abuse, which I think overlaps with verbal and emotional … I don’t know. I’m certainly not a specialist in these areas. I wish there were more hours in the day so I could visit this blog more often. You have so much to offer folks. My hope and redemptive expectation is that God will continue to immensely bless your ministry and your family. Peace, T

    • Thank you so much T! I don’t remember you mentioning that book but I will have to check it out. Yes, psychological abuse encompasses verbal and emotional with deeper impact. I really appreciate your encouraging and supportive words. Many thanks for the blessings for me and my family which mean a tremendous amount to me. May God pour out His blessings onto you and your family too, my friend!!

  6. Wrong Words can Hurt!!! We all have heard this ~> ” Sticks and Stone may Break my bones , but Names will not hurt me” <~ This is WRONG and Outdated now!!! Jesus Commanded us to LOVE one another the WAY He Loved us FIRST!! God Bless You for posting this!!
