Critical Words
Radio Hostess: Renee Swope

Sometimes words can cut deep into our hearts! Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries and PE Klove.

We’ve all been wounded by negative comments from people in our past or even people in our present. Sometimes it’s a parent who criticizes us, or a friend who rejected us. When we let their harsh words sink into our hearts and stay, it can cause us to believe we’re not worth anything!

That kind of insecurity can make us settle for unhealthy relationships and also keep us from following God’s plan for our lives.

Are there negative words people have said to you - or about you - that have crippled your hope in God’s ability to do great things through you? I know I struggle with this at times. Maybe we should both put a stop to it and ask God to send people to help us know and believe what He says about us – instead of all the critical words we’ve listened to for so long.
