Reaching out to Christians experiencing mental health problems.

What can we do about the cruel words that have crushed us?

Working in the field of mental health, I see the damage done to people every day by cruel and hurtful words. I see adults in their fifties or sixties who are still crushed by words spoken to them as children.

The words spoken by James about the ‘power of life and death that is in the tongue’ are played out in my work-place every day.

I am intrigued as I read about the cruel and hateful words spoken to Jesus, after He was arrested.

From His arrest right through the crucifixion, then finally His death, words that were mocking, angry, accusing, and sneering, was hissed at Him, but Jesus did not defend Himself against the accusations, but instead He absorbed these words taking them on Himself.

Just as Jesus took away our infirmities our sins our sicknesses on the cross, we can be confident, He will also take away the damage done to us by the wicked words spoken into our life.

Lets call out to Him, knowing that He will heal us.

Thank you, Lord Jesus.
