Spirit Words of Love

Image result for Andy Rooney keep your words soft and sweet

Have you been wounded by others who say they care?

When you needed them they weren’t there

Instead, they said they were confronting you in love

That you should rejoice they have come this far in dealing with their issues

 

Sometimes, talking to others about their conduct is showing love

But it should always be done with thoughts above

It should be done with the intent of building others up

Not breaking them down

Spirit guidance that will help others grow

God’s light of love always in us needs to show

Always in us needs to glow

 

We are all imperfect

This is true

We all say things we wish we hadn’t

Stinging things that leave their bitter poison embedded in other souls

 

What we say should show we say things that are

Compassionate

Affectionate

Restorative

Edifying

 

When we do this notice the letters reading vertically above – CARE

Ask yourself before you say something you can’t take back, examine

as much as you can in your spirit if this truly shows you CARE

 

We all speak at some time without thinking

Not giving prayerful thought to the words we say

That’s never okay

It can be viewed by the person you hurt as emotional abuse

These ill-thought words can be so cruel

Can cause others emotional damage that may never heal

Perhaps, when you think of that before anything you say,

you’ll go more God’s than your own way

Please don’t allow the Enemy to say you’re a bad person for hurting someone else

You’re not if you confess your sin to God and then go to the brother or sister you offended

Community inevitably means we will rub up against one another

Say something that gets under a person’s skin

But after the harm is done we should try to make it right

Tell that suffering soul we are sorry, really sorry, and mean it

Spirit words of God’s love needs to be in everything we say

Because if we don’t a soul in depression, in deep anxiety may fall over the edge

Your venomous words will hit them like a sledgehammer

Cause that person to commit suicide by giving up on life

Paying much less attention to their self-care

Not eating healthily

Not sleeping

Losing all interest in life

This doesn’t happen because they are weak

It occurs because they have trusted and each time had that trust betrayed

Violated

Shattered

Smothered

 

Let’s try as much as we can to give thought to the words we say

Try to love one another as we would like to be loved

It’s in doing this we show we care

That in our words God’s love will be there

Dearly beloved when we do that

we speak a healing message that will more likely build up than tear down

 

I’m not saying it will be easy

There are so many times we won’t get it right

Our humanity will get the better of us

I know it has been this way with me

Times when what I say doesn’t cause others Christ’s love in me to see

Times when I wrestle with my earthly fallen humanity

But if we try, if we work at this thing called love, more times than not

others we are in a relationship with will see and appreciate our efforts

Will more likely listen

Will more likely hear

that to you their spirits are dear

Will more likely feel God’s healing love draw near

That’s how we show lour Father’s love

That’s the kind of love

lives filled with far too much judgment from others can’t get enough of

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
