Morally Broken Heart: A Short Poem
Basic Morals: The Ten Commandments: A Guide
Morals stem from our conscience. We are all born with them, it just matters which way we were brought up, if it encouraged good or bad behavior, and what we as individuals choose to be despite that fact. Morals give us our idea of right from wrong. Unfortunately in some child abuse cases, the abuse is passed on unknowingly as it was learned behavior but later as an adult it's a choice as everything is in that we all have free will, freedom to decide and make our own choices.
It is very unforunate when someone else's lack of morals injures us to the extent it affects us on a deep level. So it becomes very painful when others break the Commandments of life and cause us tremendous pain, whatever it may be, be it murder, false accusation, kidnapping, or any crime against a friend/loved one. I believe angry and fury sets in and then hopefully those hurt can heal and find it in their hearts to forgive...for forgiving helps us more than the sinner..... The 10 Commandments are a basic guideline for us to follow to give us the best idea of what to do and not to do to be moral. A brief summary:
- You shall have no gods before me.
- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain (curse)
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
- Honor your father and your mother
- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (lie or commit perjury)
- You shall not covet your neighbor’s house (be jealous)
- you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife (lust after)
Comfort For The Afflicted
I think when unjustice is done to you or someone you love it hurts and in the case of it being done to a loved one or friend, you "viciously" want to defend them sort of like a mother does to protect her child from prey. Unfortunately we cannot protect everyone in this life, for things are unsure of and destiny or God's role for us is ever changing, or lives are ever changing and evolving, but what we can do is pray and protect ourselves with "the shield of Christ" Ephesians 6:13-14 Paul wrote “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth…” (KJV). Every good soldier knows that if he is going to remain stable and strong in battle the loins of his body or in other words his core must be strong. Peter completes the picture for us when he said “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:13 (NKJV)
The only way I can think of attaining consolation is thru prayer and forgiveness--forgiving is for you, not for the other person. By not forgiving, you hold an awful grudge that eats away at your heart.
Many people across our nation have experienced thier child being murdered or kidnapped or something so horrible happen, that it's hard to bear. Even death is hard to bear but much worse is it, when your loved one was murdered
An Ode to A Morally Broken Heart
My heart is broken
My heart it aches
For I don't know why
Or what it takes
To conceive a man to die
Reminds me of Jesus
Who on the cross He lie
My heart feels pain
Oh Lord wash again my pain with rain
Make all things anew by your grace again
For we know your every plan is for our gain
Every difficult situation in itself has its strength
And when you're tired, let God your friend " give you a seat on the bench"
Take a rest, let a friend do the praying
Have faith in God
Let him know you are a staying
I must speak
about my heart that weeps
I want to cry
For the friend who was taken
And justice is not allowed
Oh why oh why am I in this crowd?
Of people who put money or gods above the truth
Who lie and make up stories about a youth
It also tears
my family apart
We cannot forget the deed
That was done- broke our heart
They hated him
and now they hate me
If it breaks my heart
but I'll be there till the end
