Happy Sunday to you!!
Are you happy this morning? Or are you, like me, maybe feeling a little hurting in your heart – from hurt feelings, or maybe sadness from a loss?
A few days ago someone I love slung some very hurtful words at me and in hurt and anger I slung a few ugly and not nice words right back. Words that I thought would never come out of my mouth. Today I feel great remorse (even though I am still reeling in hurt).
However, I read a few Words this morning that sounded so good and reminded me where I always can find healing for my hurt. These words were:
How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
And I am reminded again of how magically reviving and hurt-healing the Words of this Book can be to me when I remember to seek them out and let them into, and wash over my heart. I love to also dwell in Psalm 139 to know that I am not, I am NEVER alone. And there is good with me, wherever I am – always.
Today, I choose to dwell in His Words, instead of those other hurtful words.
And bask in His awesome healing.
How about you – where do you turn for your heart healing? I invite you to click the link above to read Psalm 139 – let the Words flow over and sink into your heart as you reflect upon what they are saying to you. Then re-read verses 13 & 14.
Oh, how I love these beautiful Words! They tell me (you) that I (you) was planned and placed and created by a wonderful Maker, whose works are **marvelous – marvelous! – that means I (you) am marvelous! We are marvelous!
So I will let those hurtful words someone said to me, roll right off of me! They don’t stick today because God’s wonderful Words have healed my heart! I was created wonderfully and marvelously, with awe, and as long as I choose to live in this example of goodness, I can be wonderful and good, and no words can take that away from me (or you)!
So, choose to embrace this wonderfully marvelous self who God created you to be and let your heart be healed!
**Some other Bible versions use the word “wonderful” here. God’s words are wonderful! We are wonderful!
