When I hold onto a jab that was made oh so long ago, when I won’t forget what they said but I do forget I mess up too –
I either stuff it and hold it hostage or it slowly leaks out and I wonder where it came from.
The words came out, right out of my mouth and I knew it was what my heart believed.
The words came out, right out of my mouth and I knew my heart was deceived.
The Lord broke in as my heart shell shattered.
He came and kissed my wounds, touched the bruise where I was battered.
I didn’t think I was worthy, that I mattered.
He exposed the lie and replaced it with Truth, now I want to speak words of life -He is living proof.
The words I say are what my heart believes today and what I say comes back to me, becomes my reality.
So I am feasting on Truth these days, eating His Words that show me His ways.
They come back out and I wonder where they came from, then I remember it is what my heart believes. The words come right out, heart no longer deceived.
