What Are the Results?

Damaged people. Destroyed relationships. Bitterness, anger, hurt, frustration and low self esteem. They have trouble sleeping, eating, and concentrating. They may be angry or frightened, or not care anymore. Many distrust others. In many cases physical illness and cancer appears



How Do We Get Past This Abuse Problem?

Forgive. I know this is tough. I have been through the helplessness and the horrible emotional roller-coaster of abuse that tears at our stomach, torments our mind, robs us of the ability to enjoy food and sleep. I want you to read this about forgiveness - and let us build a foundation for you to safely rest on...

Ephesians 4.31 "Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others. Don’t yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude. 32 Instead, be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave you because of Christ."

This is very difficult, because those who have abused you , may have no clue as to the damage they have done, or they may no longer be living.

But "forgiveness" is for your personal healing, not theirs. Forgiveness breaks the control. Forgiveness releases you from the poison destroying you on the inside.

I cannot tell you exactly the emotions that mis-use has damaged in your self-esteem or self-worth, but I do know that the Holy Spirit of GOD can, and will repair the damage inside and release all bitterness, hate, revenge and anger - and allow you to go on without these "nooses around your neck" - seeking to strangle your emotions and well-being every day.


Get Rid of Revenge and the Wrong People Around You

You must give up the "I will get even" script. This only destroys your peace and health. Give the revenge and "payback" to GOD. Let Him handle it.

Walk away from all wrong and abusive relationships. Wrong people in your life cause bad things to happen. Get the wrong people out of your life, and wrong things will stop happening to you.

Rebuild!

Philippians 4.8 "Finally, my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don’t ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise."

Replace the destructive thoughts with GOD information. The Holy Spirit of GOD will help you. I never suggested it would be easy - just that it will be worthwhile to get your life back and begin a new journey into the future...

From My Heart to Yours...

I am deeply aware of the "incompleteness" of covering this problem.  What I have sought to create is a basic outline that allows us to recognize the problem for its seriousness and the awful poison it is pouring into so many lives, and, hopefully, we have set the stage for developing answers that will emerge as you and I communicate...
