Musings From A Musical Mind


Yesterday I had some good news on a personal level.  Someone I had been estranged from  – had come full circle to send me a message – it was something I had been praying about for over a year.

It got me thinking about our “words” and “words” from others.

Words can be healing to us – or bring pain.  How powerful are “words”!

The Bible talks about the tongue being “sharper than a two edged sword” – and I have felt the cuts over the years – from people that are casual people in my life  – and worse yet – those that I love and that I thought loved me back.  Words that sent me into a tailspin and left me bleeding and wounded.

I have also experienced the “lack” of words – that I so desperately needed to hear.  The silence that just SCREAMS.  Been there and done that – and that can hurt and cut just as deep.  Nothing worse than being separated from a good friend and having no way to reconcile the situation.  You feel helpless.

In one situation just recently I found that there was only one person who could say the “healing” words I needed to here.  Many others tried – gave feeble explanations for things gone wrong and even said to just “forget about it”.  It will get better with time.  But it did not.  No closure – no explanation – no reconciliation – no words of healing.  I knew everyone meant well – but no one knows my heart – other than God.  In the end – it was that one person that could offer the gift of stepping toward forgiveness and understanding – and that was what I needed.  A healing balm over a sad and troubled heart.

Our words are powerful.  They can bring healing – or death to a person.  We can withhold them and it can be a slow torturous ride – sending a person to sadness and depression – wondering why there can be nothing to break the silence.  We need to use our words to bring life and healing to those we are in fellowship with – those in our world and those who brush up against it.  We need to let everything that flows out of our mouths  – be sweet and loving – knowing that we can produce life or death to a person hearing them.

I have had my break through – it was much prayed for – and I never gave up.  You see – I believe with all my heart that God wants forgiveness and reconciliation for all of us.  He lovingly softens even the hardest heart that has been hurt so badly – He reaches in and begins to speak peace and healing to that hard heart.  He is in the restoring business.  He is ALL love.

Don’t give up.  Use your words today to bring peace into a situation of chaos and hopelessness.  Even if it looks like you might not get your answer – and that maybe God has abandoned you – I want to encourage you.  He has not forgotten about you and your hurting heart.  He has a plan for your life – he is working round the clock to bring about a miracle for your life.  Keep believing.  If you are waiting for those “words” you need to hear to bring your healing today – they may be just around the corner.  And you may have a sweet surprise of your own to write about.

God Bless

  1. Iknowwho this person is said:

    I thought i would share with you that the person you talk about here is getting married. I am not this person, but I thought I would share this with you since you may not know. I do not want him knowing I told you.

  2. Oh Cindy I’m so happy for you! I know you’ve been waiting for those words for so long.
    And now a small (or not so small) miracle has happened.
    It gives me hope. Thank you for this post; thank you so much.❤

  3. The Lord gives us many lessons for communication, for our words. I have several of them up on my website: and I’ll be adding more. There are literally thousands of quotes in the Bible about our words such that I know that communication must be a vital topic God wants us to understand.

  4. Cindy, I’m glad you have seen a break through. I am with you. There is no situation beyond God’s power to bring forgiveness and reconciliation. Otherwise, there is no power in the cross and no forgiveness for the worst of sinners. However, he promises, “where sin abounds, grace abound much more”. The merciful work of his grace is amazing, as John Newton found out.

    Words are powerful. The old grind, “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me”, is just wrong. Thanks for reminding us of the need for good, kind words as well as spoken words of blessing toward others.

    I rejoice with you in this!

    • Thanks Ron – it’s been over a year of waiting and praying – and those even that said to me “it can’t be done” – were WRONG!! I am so thankful I didn’t listen – but kept believing and praying. The grace and mercy of our Lord is humbling and at times I KNOW I don’t deserve it – but God is kind and gentle and it’s in times like these that I am sure of His fingerprint on my life. ♥ A HUGE weight has lifted off my chest – and I’m so grateful ♥

  5. I like the way you said that words can be a “healing balm.” Well put. Great advice and thank you for that.
