"In God, whose word I praise –
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?" (Psalm 56:4)
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me - but they do hurt! We humans can do all manner of nasty things to each other, we put each other down, we allow others to have hold over our lives. We put our trust in one another only to be let down.
Put your trust in God, the one who will never let you down, never hurt you or try to destroy your sense of self for the Creator loves you with unending love, His love knows no bounds, it is unconditional and it is there for you, to comfort and uphold you - whatever we humans do to each other, God is there to heal our broken & downtrodden hearts - that is surely something to be grateful for.
