A Religious Spirit…

A religious spirit…
tries to tear many believers down…
when God clearly speaks to some…
but others have the wrong voice found.
For though many Christians…
believe in God to some degree…
they still put Him in a box… Continue reading

Domestic Violence Awareness: Spiritual Abuse…

As October’s Domestic Violence Awareness continues, I want to bring more awareness to spiritual abuse… which many of us have experienced. Many times this is used against victims of abuse but then there are other situations.  So many Christians who mean well, turn people away by just questioning them about their spirituality. Sometimes it is just best to show the Love of Christ through you than to speak words that turn people away.  Just think about it…

Spiritual abuse…
comes from across the land…
with Christians criticizing Christians…
but so many don’t understand.
For the Body of Christ…
has many different parts…
but turning to Him…
is where every believer starts.
From the newest “Christian”…
to those who have long believed… Continue reading

DV Awareness Day#20: Various Abuses– Which Have You Experienced?

Image result for all types of abuses

As I was thinking of the various abuses that so many of us have endured, I thought of providing a list and having people write which ones they have experienced. Too many people still think that verbal and emotional abuse is insignificant… but it is not. It is the forerunner that leads to the other abuses. Now I can tell you that there were times that I thought it would be easier to be hit than the constant verbal attacks. But no abuse is easy. No abuse is right. And it is only when we say, “enough is enough” and stand up to the abuses, that we can get the strength to find a way out and accept the abuse “no more”!

Abuses and their definitions: Continue reading

Spiritual Abuse…

Spiritual abuse…
comes from across the land…
with Christians criticizing Christians…
but so many don’t understand.
For the Body of Christ…
has many different parts…
but turning to Him…
is where every believer starts.
From the newest “Christian”…
to those who have long believed…
to those who struggle to hear…
and those with spiritual ears received.
From those preaching on pulpits…
and those who just sit and pray…
we all serve a divine purpose…
with His plan to be revealed one day. Continue reading

Stop Pointing Fingers

Many “Christians” point fingers at others as they point out their “sins”. Some “churches” even ban certain people from their buildings because they are “sinners”. However, we all need to realize that we all sin and it is for these sins that Jesus Christ gave up His life. We are not to judge others. We need to “stop pointing fingers.” Remember these words from this picture… it was “my sin” that nailed him there.”

So many look at others sins…
but fail to look deep within.
And considering what these words say…
we have to look at this another way.
For many point fingers at others…
accusing our sisters and brothers…
but God looks at all sins we make…
not just the others mistakes. Continue reading

Is This Abuse?

“Is this abuse” has been asked by many over the years as we have suffered various abuses but the boundaries were not clear. And so many abuses are yet to be exposed for the legal system only recognizes “physical” but every abuse God knows. Physical, verbal, emotional, psychological, sexual, financial, spiritual, and workplace abuses all need to be exposed. For much damage is done by these and the extent only God knows… Laws need to be changed to help the innocent victims!!

Is this abuse?
Is a question often asked…
as we face many struggles…
and endless turmoil that lasts.
For when we’re physically hit…
is when abuse is perfectly clear…
but what if it’s psychological…
as abusers berate then call you dear. Continue reading
