DV Awareness: Verbal Abuse

For October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I want to continue to talk about different aspects of abuse and it’s effects. Many adults live with the effects of the negative words spoken against them from their childhood. Words tear down and cause hidden wounds that we don’t see but they affect our future decisions and relationships.  I pray that more will realize the Power of the Spoken Word and begin to speak positive to all.

It’s easier to build up a child…
than an adult be repaired.
Cause verbal abuse hurts…
with many not being spared.
For words cut like a knife…
with invisible wounds so deep.
So be careful what you say…
with every word you speak.
Build up each other…
and don’t tear others down.
For it’s even in words spoken…
that brokenness is found.

The tongue can bring death or life;
    those who love to talk will reap the consequences. .” Proverbs 18:21

Some people make cutting remarks,
    but the words of the wise bring healing.” Proverbs 12:18

Dear Lord, I pray that hearts will turn to You and that they will realize the power of the spoken word. I pray that parents will change and raise their children with kind, positive words that will build up and not tear down. Only You see the hidden wounds deep within our hearts and souls from the destructive words spoken and I ask You to bring healing and restoration to all… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. I truly agree with and understand this post. I was never verbally at home but I suffered it at school and later in my marriage . The scars are invisible and deep and they will not heal. To this day I can be reduced to a useless soul by words. Thank you for this post.xxx

    • Hi willowdot! Yes, the scars are invisible and deep and have hurt many of us. These wounds can only be healed by God with a transforming of our minds… that we are the righteousness of God in Christ, sons and daughters of the Most High God, and He lives within us so these words are lies of the enemy. Thank you so much for your support and God bless you, my friend!!
