Today I met an abused woman

Today I met a woman who was so amazing.

She was in the midst of a divorce that was tearing apart her family – you would have thought that she would be crying.

But instead she was all smiles, (and not because she was happy to be getting away from her husband.) :p

She actually wanted to work things out.   But he was emotionally abusive.  He broke her down.  The children were scared of him.  She tried for years to get him to change.  But he sucked the life out of her.

I asked her how she could be so seemingly peaceful when she was in the middle of a nasty divorce.

She said God was giving her peace.  Wow!  That really spoke to me – sometimes in the middle of an amazing day, I feel depressed.  And here is this woman who has peace while going through a divorce.

She was so inspirational – I had to ask her to speak to myself and a few friends.  She agreed.

Her message was that yes, God can heal broken marriages, but if a person chooses to abuse you, do not stay, and DO NOT feel guilty or like it’s your fault. You are a child of God, and you don’t deserve to be abused.  You’re worth more.

Be blessed!

    i’m so glad this woman found peace while breaking free from her abuser. although the church is making progress in really helping abused chistian women, there’s still much to be done. God NEVER intended for his children to be beaten, abused, and misused. that intention does not change when a believer gets married. good post 🙂

      Thanks Christina! I believe this woman be speaking all over and in churches about how Christian women must realize that abuse is never OK, and that divorce is not wrong if you are being abused. I know too many women who stay in abusive situations b/c they are scared God will be mad at them. I am so glad she found peace too! 🙂 Blessings!
