First and foremost we should know that love does not hurt. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, boastful, proud, or rude. Love does not demand it's own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never looses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I Corinthians 13:4-7.
Domestic violence is a spiritual and generational curse. Genesis 3:14-21
Everyone will be held accountable for their actions. Those who live by the sword die by the sword. Matthew 26:52. When you live a life full of violence it usually ends in self destruction. Judges 9:5,23,56,57.
We are commanded to:
We have been redeemed from domestic violence. Jesus Christ has saved us from the fall and has restored the relationship between male and females. People like to blame God for putting them in those destructive relationships. Don't blame him. We have a free will of choice, and your choice is what got you there.
May be you:
No matter how you got there, there is a way out. How? by renewing your mind. Proverbs 23:7 " For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he". Getting information on what healthy and non healthy relationships are. Educate yourself on what domestic violence is. Study and meditate on what the word of God says. Make it a part of your daily routine. As your thoughts begin to align with God's word your life will begin to transform from the way you live.
I was in an abusive relationship that was stopping my life. I had to change the situation. No matter how hard I tried to be nice to him, change my ways toward him, it didn't work. He was use to it, so he still would not give me respect. I had to get bold and do something different. His words could not cut me down no more. I made less money than him but it was my house and my car. He was beginning to loose control. Things started to get worse. I was no longer scared of him. I put him out it was a struggle but I had no more time to pray and think about what I should do. My life was at a stand still until I became bold and removed the negative situation out of my life.
Make a decision on what you want to do. Think about what you will and won't accept in your life. Have a plan to do things different and renew your mind. Prepare yourself to move and take action.
