in so many homes today…
where one controls all money…
negating what the other will say.

NUMBERS… A Message to Victims

NUMBERS… A message to victims:
I want to share a story in “Numbers”…
  12 men were sent to spy the land…
and report back any encumbers.

But only Joshua and Caleb,
did not fear the giants of the land.
For they knew that they would win,
with the Power of God’s Mighty Hand.

But the Israelites complained
claiming they would be victims in fear…
for they could only see the giants,
yelling, “how could God lead us here”. Continue reading

A Victim Mentality is How Many Are Perceived

As we talk this month about the various aspects of abuse, I want to remind all victims that we do not have remain in that rut of victimization. We can arise above the brokenness of our past and walk into the future that God has specifically designed for each of us… but we need to let go of the past to overcome and advance into our future.

A victim mentality…

for it’s how they see themselves…
as their brokenness becomes believed.
For they have trouble…
rising about the traumas in their life…
becoming stuck in the rut…
reliving the turmoil and strife. Continue reading

Victims or Abusers… What Lies Within Your Heart?

As we bring awareness to various aspects of domestic violence this month, I want to remind everyone that whether a victim or an abuser, these behaviors all started with a wound upon a heart… a wound inflicted by an abuse.  So though it is hard to grasp when we are hurting from the wounds  of abuse from our own past, sometimes we need to remember that the abusers were once victims too. Now this does not excuse the abusive behaviors that are learned for we are all responsible for our words and actions. But, this is why we need to pray… so the cycle of abuse will be broken from our children.

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. Continue reading
