Sister, if you are being abused or if you know someone who might be being abused, I’m sorry. Welcome to my page on abuse. I pray it’s a blessing to you. Here we’ll look at what domestic abuse is and is not, the difference in a bad marriage and an abusive one, my own story of being abused, and some resources that might help you.
I was born into abuse and I married an abuser. I’ve experienced everything from physical to emotional abuse, from sexual to spiritual abuse. I’ve lived under the heavy hand of extreme financial abuse both with my father and my husband. Outside of my immediate family, I’ve experienced molestation by men I ought to have been able to trust and once was nearly raped.
But abuse doesn’t define me and it needn’t define you or those you love, either. God is sovereign, even over abuse.
