Domestic Violence: The Rest of the Story

“The rest of the story”…
were the words that came to my mind…
as I read stories of violence…
wondering what else we would find.
Like what causes a woman…
to be angry enough to pull a gun…
then fire shots into her husband…
but is this where the story had begun?
And what causes a violent altercation…
with a finger to be bitten off a man…
was it drugs or abuse related…
for this violence we don’t understand.
What could possibly cause these attacks…
with violence of this severity…
with possible loss of life or limb…
with medical treatment a necessity.
For what happens behind closed doors…
is hidden from all prying eyes…
but will the truth be revealed…
or will it be masqueraded with lies.
For when the violence is exposed…
when medical attention is sought…
will the rest of the story be exposed…
with the real reason that they fought.
Will abuse and adultery…
be the “straw that broke the camel’s back”…
or will drug and alcohol addictions…
be the stimulus that fueled the attack.
For there are more chapters to each story…
that lead up to each vicious fight…
but one thing is certain…
“2 wrongs do not make a right.”
For domestic violence is hidden…
and crimes of passion occur every day…
but if at all possible…
please just turn and walk away.
God sees what is happening…
and every wound inflicted on each heart…
so give all anger and resentment to Him…
and ask Him for a brand new start.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Dear Lord, only You see the violence that is occurring around the world for various reasons. You see the anger and resentment that many individuals have embedded in their hearts. We pray for protection for all victims and deliver all from the evil that tempts each to do wrong. Turn hearts to You so they will come to know that Love and comfort that can only come from You. Set the captives free and help all to walk into the future that You have planned for each… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
