Abuse Victims… Like Pearls Of The Sea

https://i2.wp.com/d.ibtimes.co.uk/en/full/348474/oyster-pearl.jpg

This is for the many who have suffered from the many abuses that man inflicts upon us. This world tries to break us… but God can remake us. He uses all that we have been through as a testament to His Amazing Grace as we hold onto Him and allow Him to transform us… like “pearls of the sea.”

Abuse victims…
like pearls of the sea.
Covered in darkness…
till Light exposes its beauty.
For many of us have lived…
in “shells” where we hide…
protecting our inner self…
and praying where we abide.
For abuses are painful…
with even words bringing shame.
And we seek solitude within…
while crying out God’s Name.
For many have been trapped…
like oysters in a shell…
but “pearl” transformations occur…
while in God’s Presence we dwell.

For from “ashes to beauty”…
like an oyster covers its pearl…
is who abuse victims are…
when God exposes them to the world.
For His Word is Truth…
He will heal and restore!
And just like opening an oyster…
the beauty of a “pearl” inside is so much more.
For victims of abuse…
are like iridescent pearls of the sea…
they’ve been hidden till exposed…
with transformation as their testimony.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

Dear Lord, only You know the multitude of abuse victims who have been broken by the wrongs inflicted upon them. Cover them with Your Presence like the coating of a pearl, protecting each with Your “Shell” till You are ready to expose the beauty of each as You transform their lives. Set them free from their “shells” where they have hidden from abuses and heal them down to the depths of their souls. Let the beauty within each shine like the iridescence of pearls in Your Light… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

      • God loves all, but especially the downtrodden and “broken!” He champions their causes through efforts like yours, Angel!

        Bless your work, sister…

        Steve

      • And God continue to bless you and your family, as well as, the path you walk, my dear!

        Your efforts are not going ineffective nor unappreciated I assure you…

        Steve

      • I shared your latest post on teen sex with my church FB page…good info, Angel, as always!

        Steve

      • Thanks for sharing. I pray that more teens will realize the wounds that this causes and hold onto God and His Love until they are adults and ready for marriage.

      • Oh Angel, teens today have so little to hope in. The schools have taken God away, the homes are “splintered,” and these sweet young ones are left with the worldly things as answers. And we know this word holds no lasting hope…

        I pray that we can do something to help teens especially to place their hopes in Christ Jesus!

        Steve

      • Prayer is the key. As His Body of Christ, His true believers come together in prayer, we will see a difference. I join you in prayer for all teens and all the broken!

      • Personal prayer is about all we have right now for which we won’t get in legal trouble for these days!

        God wants those to stand for His word, but I believe we must do things peaceably or we will ruin His name in the eyes of the world…

        Steve

      • …And love as He loved and forgive as He forgives. I want to have as much of the Lord’s “personality” in me as He will allow!

        No more of this “part Him and part me” stuff. I mean we have to live in this world, but we can try to do so while shining as much of Jesus’ Light as we can…

        🙂

      • Have you heard that song “All of Me, None of Thee?” It begins with that thought, then becomes “some of me and some of thee.”

        Next it lessens to “more of thee and less of me,” and finally to “all of thee and none of me.”

        Until we fully surrender our will to that of God’s, we may never reach our full effectiveness in Him!

        Steve

      • I wish I could help with more information on it. But at least you get the idea behind the song…

        We can spend a lifetime getting to the last verse of that hymn!

        🙂
