She’ll Leave 7 Times…

Image result for victims return 7 times

She’ll leave 7 times…
is what domestic violence statistics show…
before deciding it’s enough…
and making the final decision to go.
For we all want happiness…
and our dreams of a perfect life to come true…
but abusers deceive and manipulate…
vowing to change but rarely do.
For real transformation…
is what it takes to stop abuse…
but few will do what it takes…
and empty promises is what they’ll use.

And these warnings I’ll give to all women…
who decide to give their husbands another chance…
wanting to save their marriage as I did…
and believing their efforts at first glance.
For words are cheap…
and bring promises that many can’t or won’t keep…
so beware of the warning signs of abuse…
and the words of sarcasm and anger that many speak.
For though many start with their best behavior…
as the “honeymoon” portion of the cycle again begins…
we never know when they will lose control…
and the explosive portion of the cycle shows again.

“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 victims who repeatedly return to these abusive situations. You know what lies in all their hearts and the reasons for returning. You also know who will actually change and who will not. We pray for protection for all of these victims of abuse. We pray  for healing and restoration. And we pray for transformation to occur in their lives and that the cycle of abuse to be broken… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
