The Stuck Words

There was a man talking on the radio a couple days ago about the childhood saying: sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.  He was commenting on how untrue that is! He grew up being called names and being told that he would never amount to anything worthwhile, to him, a broken leg would've been easier to deal with.
I've thought about his statement, because words have made a huge impact in my life. When I hear something or read something, it is challenging for me to get the words out of my brain. So, something negative can be destructive, and has been destructive in my life. Some of the words I heard from childhood became so ingrained in my brain that I didn't even recognize them as being there, it was just a natural part of me, yet destructive. But, stuck negative words are lies, and as I have learned to recognize them and replace them with truth, God's truth, the stuck words in my brain are becoming His Words!
When I get overly stressed I find myself replaying some of the negative words, the automatic player just pops on and away we go together. It is then that I need to pray, or call and pray with someone. I need someone to remind me of the immense mercy of my God, and His amazing truth.
His Word is within me, so I am guided by His truth. In Psalms 12:6 I read:

God's Word's are pure words, Pure silver words refined seven times in the fires of His word-kiln, Pure on earth as well as in heaven.

Say That Again, Jesus, stick Your pure Words in my head forever!
