Verbal and emotional abuse

The wounds of verbal and emotional abuse go deep. Because there is no visible bruise, people who have been abused this way tend to keep silent or minimize the severity of their hurt, as the effects are hard to prove. God wants to heal those wounds and speak words of blessing instead of cursing. We can be His mouthpiece as well. Our words have the power of life or death; be careful how you speak!
