Under my facade I wore a fictitious smile I acted like a jokester for a while From my outward behavior people though I was fine Apart from joking many things were on my mind When I mingled with people in a crowd I played with words until they laughed out loud Even with a good sense of humor My views were scrambled to a degree Until I distance myself and focused on me I had to deal with my emotional anguish and fears All the issues and secrets I held in for years The unforgiveness and bitterness I hid in my heart The lies that were spoken that tore me apart The arrows that were shot which pierced my soul The desire to be healthy healed and made whole When emotional wounds are inflicted by those you love Only God’s grace can heal you from above A broken wounded spirit only God can mend After malicious words are spoken to offend Only God’s grace can comfort and heal The issues we hide compress and conceal
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. God is the only one who can heal our pains and comfort us in sorrow. For he is Jehovah Rapha that heals us physically mentally and spiritually.
