Victims or Abusers… What Lies Within Your Heart?

Victims or Abusers…
What lies within your heart?
For what is hidden within…
is where your words and acts start.
For abusive words…
flow from the anger in your soul.
And they are like daggers…
to hearts of victims that they’re told.
And abusive actions…
with all the different violent acts…
reside within each heart…
where hidden rage leads to these attacks.
And oh, the victims…
what treasures does your heart store?
Is it love, kindness, and hope…
that keep you coming back for more?
Or is it fear…
a deep-seeded fear of man…
causing a lack of response to abuse…
that so many don’t understand.
So whether a victim or abuser…
the key lies in each heart…
for we take a path of brokenness…
with a wound being it’s start.
To take a path of anger…
with abusive words and deeds…
usually starts as a victim…
where abuse planted it’s seeds.
Or to live as a victim…
where the victim mentality breathes…
also started with a wound…
with a hopelessness to succeed.
But we can all let go…
of the abuses of our pasts…
whether abuser or victim…
this mentality does not have to last.
For we can all be changed…
and walk the path God wants us to use…
for one thing is certain…
He never wants any of us abused.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7

“For out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45

Dear Lord, only You see the wounds that have been inflicted upon each heart and soul through the abuses of our pasts. You see the damage done and the effects upon our lives as we each choose a path of brokenness in different directions. Set us all free from the abuses of our past. Heal all the wounds that lie deep within our hearts. Deliver us from the path of brokenness that we have all undertaken and set on all on the path of wholeness that can only come from You. Protect our children and set them free from the bondage of words and deeds cast upon them by abusive people. Break the cycle of abuse so that our children will no longer take the path of going from victim to abuser. Heal us all and bring hope to the hopeless… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
