DV Awareness Day #11: The Warning Signs of Abuse

Image result for NCADV RED FLAGS OF DANGER

The warning signs of abuse…
are ignored so many times.
But I pray that you’ll heed them…
before violence is what you find.
For there are so many abuses
but these words you need to know-
Abuse “may take you further
than you ever wanted to go.
And it’ll keep you longer
than you ever wanted to stay.
And it’ll cost you more
than you ever wanted to pay.”
For the wounds of abuse
are deep with heart-felt pain.
So please heed the warnings signs…
and from this brokenness you will refrain.
For anger, bitterness, hate, and rage…
are all some of the warning signs…
while possessiveness, control, and  jealousy…
are other negative traits you’ll find.
And crazy, stupid, ignorant, lazy…
may be harassing words he calls you…
while hitting and throwing things…
are tactics to frighten and subdue.
So beware of all the negative signs…
that wave red flags of danger.
And get away from the abuses…
before you suffer more damage that you wager.

Dear Lord, protect us and deliver us from evil.  Open our eyes to see the “red flags or warning signs” of abuse before becoming trapped in abusive relationships and open the doors for victims to leave. We pray for discernment to avoid abusive situations, courage to walk away, and the boldness to speak out… in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.

    • Hi Pastor Jim! I totally agree with you. So much abuse in marriages and so much of it becomes acceptable… but it is not. Maybe you could read my book one day. It may be beneficial to others who remain in abusive marriages. God has better plans…
