#2: Domestic Violence Awareness Series

image

Unlike this graphic portrayal of the Disney character Cinderella,
domestic violence is sadly a very real part of everyday life for many women. The ironic twist is that just as Cinderella’s glass coach reverted to its identity as a pumpkin and her dance with Prince Charming came to a jarring halt as the clock struck twelve, abused women have had their lives and well-being shattered as their husbands/boyfriends transform from being the men who love and adore them to being their worst nightmare.
Maybe you are facing domestic violence in your marriage. If you are, the question to ask is not “When did he stop treating you like a princess?” The important question to ask yourself is “What am I going to do to get my glass slipper back?  Because you lost something when the man you adored transformed! You lost a piece of your identity and you began to run from yourself inside as you faced the reality he began to show you. Back to that important question: you don’t have a fairy godmother. You can turn to God!!! Turn to Jesus and ask Him to make a way for you to find your slipper again: your peace, your joy, your health, your safety and security, the man you love once again!!! Trust Him and take action to get yourself some help and refuge from the abuse until you can safely reconcile with your Prince Charming without fear. Prince Charming needs to treat you like the princess, like the daughter of God that you are.
With love,
