In grief and pain and despair, you say things you otherwise would not say. You paint your reality darker than you will paint it tomorrow when the sun comes up. You sing in minor keys and talk as though that is the only music. You see only clouds and speak as if there were no sky.
‘Where is God. There is no use to go on. Nothing makes any sense. There is no hope for me.’ These words are wind or literally, for the wind. They will be quickly blown away. There will come a turn in circumstances, and you will waken from the dark night and regret hasty words.
Do not spend your time and energy reproving such words. They will be blown away of themselves on the wind. If you had discernment, you could tell the difference between the words with roots and the words blowing in the wind.
There are words with roots in deep error and deep evil. But not all grey words get their color from a black heart. Some are colored mainly by the pain, the despair.
There is something real within where they come from but what you hear is not the deepest thing within, it is temporary – real, painful – but not the true you.
Learn to discern whether the words spoken against you or against God or against the truth are merely for the wind – spoken not from the soul, but from the sore. If they are for the wind, wait in silence and not reprove.
Restoring the soul, not reproving the sore, is the aim of your Love.
