Bouncing Back

We live in a world where negativity comes our way almost on a daily basis.  We have to find within ourselves a way to bounce back from disappointments and loss.  This can take time to rebuild our trust and heal our hurts.  When we are hurting we just need to find a way to heal our wounds and then go back in the real world and face it.  It would be great if we did not live in a world of angry words and hate.  The old phrase that says “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” is so untrue.  There are people who have committed suicide and lived in mental anguish with a harsh word that was used.

Have you ever cooked with Teflon pots?  These post are made with a special coating so that when you cook or fry something, the food does not stick to it.  That is what we need in our lives, we need a special coating so that when those angry words, disappointments and losses come in our lives, we can slide them away.  It is easier said than done.  This is not an overnight process and sometimes we live with these words for an eternity.  However we can agree to do this, whenever we come in contact with someone who is being hurtful to us, we don’t have to accept it.  We can ask God to help us and not let that negative, hurtful, or angry word stick with us, but rather have us stick with Him and not absorb this in our lives.

Like Proverbs 25:11 says in International Standard Version:

“Like golden apples set in silver is a word spoken at the right time.”
