A well-known idiom states: “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words cannot harm me.” How many of us can say this is true? And that today we are not living with, getting over, or trying to get over some words spoken to us either by someone for whom we cared or by strangers in who we have nothing invested?
We are all vessels of knowledge, reflections of what we’ve heard said, spoken over our lives, and knowledge accumulated. The voices of our forefathers, environments, and cultures all played a vital role in our belief system and today’s worldview. These echoes have shaped our perceptions and emotions, which we use to build walls to enslave and torment us with silent whispers through our subconscious minds. However, through God’s grace and the truth of His Word, we can begin building new perceptions and dreams for our lives.
