If it’s not physical abuse, it’s not really abuse. If he hasn’t hit you, you need to stay. Marriage is a forever commitment you should never leave.
In those painful early days, I did things I never dreamed I was capable of. I shudder to think of the person I was becoming.
I know there are many Christians questioning how someone could renounce their faith, but I must say that I understand. Although I never gave up on God, I was close.
I’m not sure where the church got this idea that a woman (or man) must stay in an abusive marriage. I don’t know how scripture can be so twisted and manipulated
God is still in control. He is still fighting for you even when your marriage fails. He still has great plans for you even when your partner leaves you behind.
I see redemption so clearly in so many ways. I see God’s hand carrying us through such painful days to bring healing. I see the God who loves us so well reflected in every smile, in every face.
He told me he knew that to get a girl like me, he had to seek God. Oh, how my heart melted that day!!
