The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? (Proverbs 18:14 KJV)

I listened to a very heart-breaking message the other morning on Focus on the Family. It was by Frank Peretti. I love his books, but that's all I knew about him - that he is a Christian and that he writes some of the best Christian fiction books. But what he told everybody that was listening to KSBJ at 5AM, it made me rethink some things I originally thought/judged. 

So, Peretti was bullied when he was a child. He was born with a defect, his tongue stuck out of his mouth and was black and scabbed, he couldn't speak that well. After a couple of surgeries, the last one being around 7th grade, his tongue was normal. 

Obviously how people are, he was bullied. Relentlessly. Being a victim of bullying, I can understand, but not to the extent Peretti was. It just broke my heart that people can be so cruel to a little kid, just because he was born with a defect. He turned into  an introvert, no self confidence, scared of people - not able to speak, because he feared what people would think and say. 

It's no wonder he turned to writing. Putting our thoughts on paper gives us the creative license that we would not have through speaking. People just don't care what you have to say, but if you write it they pay attention - it's kind of sad how that works. He is an amazing author - when he was young, his "thing" was monsters, because of the power they had against other people ("of course until the end of the movie" he said). That can be clearly seen through his books, the monsters in them - of course, God wins at the end :)

His point was that hurt people hurt people. Think about that - hurt people hurt people. People who have been hurt in the past hurt other people - he didn't say that exactly, that quote comes from Rick Warren, but it's true all the same. At Columbine High School, that kid who murdered people, he was bullied relentlessly. Some people don't heal after their spirit is stabbed day after day after day. That does not give him an excuse, but that does show how bad our education system is and how bad people are.

People try to put band-aids over the wounded spirit. "Just ignore them" "Stay away from them" "Stand up to them" it doesn't work, none of it works - people need to realize that. There is no easy fix for bullying - even if the bullies are reprimanded, that doesn't mean that they will stop - hurt people hurt people. There is still hope though. 

This affected me greatly, just because of the verse he gave us and the trials I have been through. I have had a "wounded spirit" for years now, and I knew that but now I know I am not alone. I am now in a better place, so that my spirit can heal. I moved away from my house, away from my non-christian parents so that I can finally grow and live my life without fear of what my parents will think. It is amazing what a good night of sleep, reading my bible and praying without fear of condemnation, going to a place of love, can do to your soul. Praise Jesus, I can live now.

Well, thank y'all for reading :) I pray every single one of you realizes that our lives are meant to give glory to God, in every single thing we do.

PEACE OUT!!!!!!!

By the Road with a Black Rose
No one knows who did it
No one saw the gun
All they saw was her frail body,
A massacre like no other

There were rope burns on her neck
And a stab wound in her chest
Her eyes, horror stricken
Her last glimpse of her killer

Cold, frigid hands in prayer formation
Begging for mercy
Still, lifeless lips that will never utter another sound
Her last breath, screaming
Dried blood on her dark satin dress
By the road with a black rose

~ A lovely poem written by Bananasnap fav.me/d4x0c06

Romans 8:31
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Isaiah 53:4-6
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Hebrews 40:31
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Genesis 31:49
It was also called Mizpah, because he said, “May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.
