Jeremiah 23:29 “‘Is not my word like fire,’ declares the Lord, ‘and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?'” (NIV)*
Chip away jagged pieces
of this stone cold heart.
Sharpened edges formed
by life undone, protruding.
If left alone to grow
then hurt others.
by Patty Perkins
I’ve heard it said that hurt people hurt people. That’s motivation to deal with disappointments and let the Lord bring healing. Otherwise, those jagged edges might very well jab someone else and the whole cycle continue.
So, chip away. Let the rocks be broken and purified. Let the Word do it’s work in me.
