Women of Abuse: Fighting Battles

Women of abuse…
fighting battles no one sees…
while they struggle in silence…
and pray to God upon knees.
For they loved beyond faults…
while treated with abuse…
praying to God for change…
and giving their lives to Him to use.
For they cry out to God…
to help them in their need…
as the abuses increase…
and for their children they plead. Continue reading

Damaged Goods… is What Many Think

This is for the many who feel that they are “damaged” or no longer useful because of their past and the many abuses they have encountered. It is that “past” that God will use to help others who have gone through similar tribulations. He is calling all of us to turn to Him and trust Him with our futures.

“Damaged goods”…
is what many think.
Feeling worthless…
as self-esteems shrink.
For the enemy comes…
and kills, steals, and destroys…
as he plants negative thoughts…
for with our minds he toys. Continue reading

Children, Trust, and Blind Faith

This is a reminder that all of us go through struggles and obstacles in this life… but God created us for more than “this life” and the abuses that we suffer. As children, we all started with “child-like faith” in those who cared for us, even when we were abused… but God is calling all of us to have “child-like faith” in Him. Then trust Him with your future and see what He will do.

Children are born…
every single day…
to parents who love…
and attempt to lead the way.
For these children trust…
learning what’s done and said…
whether love and kindness…
or abuse and bullying instead.
And it’s this blind faith…
with total trust and love…
that patterns their behavior…
like a hand molding a glove. Continue reading

A message to someone…
with wounds from abuse…
hidden deep within…
from years of misuse.
And though you don’t see them…
or thought you were immune…
these wounds were inflicted…
but hidden like in a cocoon. Continue reading

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

My heart aches for the broken
and all those who are wronged.
And I wish I could make it better…
and touch their hearts with a song.
For I have been where they are…
and felt the pain that they feel.
Now I can only tell you…
that with God and time you will heal.
For the wounds of adultery…
are deep to your core.
and I have felt this pain…
as I have been there before.

The day I was almost raped..changed my life

God is still in the miracle business!!

The day I cried out.

Today I want to write about the day God began His incredible journey of healing me.

People may look at me now and never even think or believe where I would be if God might’ve never rescued me from a dead lifestyle.
. . . . . .

But when I was only 16 my heart had already felt much pain.
Much hearbreak.
Much rejection.
Nights I would think of suicide.
I thought I knew what I wanted.
I DIDN’T.

How is it that Someone can actually heal and restore your broken up soul!

I have experienced it. I know.

And it all started with a cry.

The year was 2002.
The month.. January.
I did the dangerous.
I took off with a boy I didn’t really know at all.
But hey, I was a teen girl with a bruised and torn…
