Abuse Happens Often

This is for the many who have suffered abuse at the hands of others. Abusers never admit that they abuse… but their victims know the truth!

Abuse happens often…
but not so easy to see.
For it’s hidden behind doors…
while inflicted upon family.
With yelling, screaming…
threats and more…
Victims are badgered…
while behind closed doors.
But when the door opens…
and others come in…
the smiles get painted…
and attacks suddenly end.
For abusers always hide…
speaking so nice and kind…
until the witnesses leave…
and more abuse we then find.
And this abuse happens…
again and again…
while victims get more fearful…
fearing this cycle will never end.
For the anger increases…
with escalating violence…
like a raging inferno…
lapping the air in silence.
And abuse happens…
in more places than home.
From workplace to schools…
where abusers do roam.
But the pattern’s the same…
always hidden from view…
where only the victim…
knows what these abusers do.
And no one who abuses…
will ever admit to the abuse…
for many think it is normal…
but this is no excuse.

Dear Lord, expose the abuse that is hidden behind closed doors whether at homes, schools, or work. Rescue all victims and expose the anger that is hidden deep within the hearts of those who abuse these victims. Expose it and raise up witnesses to help victims. Bring healing and restoration to all victims. We pray that laws will be changed to help victims even where no bruises are shown  and that emotional and verbal abusers will be held accountable for their words and actions… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Abused- http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2011/09/29/in-my-arms/

    I was very abused as a Child and in my first Marriage but although I remember the abuse it is without pain now and this freedom came when I forgave all those who hurt me.

    • Amen!! Forgiveness is key. We have to forgive and we have to repent also to totally walk into the fullness that God has for us. I praise God for leading you through your struggles and helping to you overcome. He has repeatedly shown you that you are in His Hand of protection and provision and He won’t stop now. May God pour out His blessings upon you and Ron. The Love that you have together is so beautiful!!
