Starting Over

Starting over…
is what many have to do…
to escape abuses…
and start life anew.
Now some leave fast…
with the clothes on their back…
with or without their children…
to escape a violent attack.
Then some stick it out…
till they can’t take anymore…
always watching and waiting…
for an open escape door.
And some get away…
but the abuses still come…
because they’re linked by children…
still having to communicate some.
Then the turmoil continues…
with the children in the midst…
who now experience the abuse…
because an abuser can’t resist.
Now this is the cycle…
that many victims have endured…
as they struggle to overcome…
with every option explored.
But hearts keep getting hurt…
and wounds just won’t heal…
with the repeated attacks…
abusers skillfully conceal.
So the best thing we can do…
is to seek God and pray…
for He can control any door…
whether to get away or stay.
And He can change our circumstances…
and even change our hearts…
whether He brings restoration…
or brings us a brand-new start.
And He will bring healing…
and give us the strength to go on…
as we seek His Will for us…
which only He has known.
For His ways are not our ways…
and His timing is different too…
but as we seek His Presence…
He will start our lives anew.

  2. Yes….He does close doors. Then He allows us to open other ones and they have the same devils behind them that we just escaped. Is that supposed to make us strong….or completely break us?
