Cut Out Cutting Remarks

Post  fennywest on Sat 25 Sep 2010, 10:38 am

Cutting remarks
Leave marks of wound
That make you smart and start
Leave you unsound.

Triggered by Arsonist Anger
They’re like bone in your throat
Come to choke and kill
They’re replayed to imprison.

Fuelled by Irate Irritation,
They pierce like razor blades
Drawing blood out of your soul;
Your mood they control.

Fired by Ignorant Impatience,
They rumble on and on,
Making you weak and sick;
You want to vomit.

Assuaged by Friend Frustration,
They set relationships ablaze,
Cutting family ties,
Poison like the venom of an adder.

Garnered by Sister Stress
They cause a lot of distress
And make you bitter;
Cause you to cry.

Enhanced by Brother Guilt,
They bury you alive,
Dismembering you piece by piece.
They have no mercy.

Shot by Guilt
They seek to justify
Their lust for blood
And taste for tears.

Reared by Insecurity
They bore holes
in your confidence
And self-esteem

So let’s cut out
The cutting remarks,
And for good stand out,
Making remarks that heal.

18 Reckless words pierce like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Proverbs 15:1(New International Version)
Proverbs 15
1 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger. KJV
26 “Be angry, and do not sin”:[a] do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil. Eph.4:26-27
Do Not Grieve the Spirit

25 Therefore, putting away lying, “ Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil. 28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Eph.4:25-32
Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.Ps141:3
Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, And from the opening of my lips will come right things; For my mouth will speak truth; Wickedness is an abomination to my lips.Prov.8:6,7
My lips will not speak wickedness, Nor my tongue utter deceit.Job27:4

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.Ps19:14
24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth,
And put perverse lips far from you. Prov.4:24

24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.Prov1:24-27
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."Matt12:37

Great write! And a good reminder to walk holy

Scary and sobering thought. Fenny! Blessings.
