Christians and Domestic violence

God hates divorce have been the words repeatedly spoken to a women who is in an abusive relationship.

God does hate divorce, but this scripture is given to A CHRISTIAN marriage, one were both spouses are serving the Lord. For when a husband and wife serve the Lord, than they can truly understand the covenant of a marriage. Let us take a look at this verse.

1 Corinthians 7:15 (NKJV)
15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such case. But God has called us to peace.

Here we can see that the bible tells us if an unbelieving spouse wants to leave to let them go. God knows that it is very difficult to live with someone who does not believe in Him and will not obey His voice. If you read further it also states, that God has called us to live in PEACE!

Their have been so many women who have been killed in an abusive relationship; because they were told by well meaning friends, that God hates divorce! These women are told that they should stay in a relationship were they are being physically and emotionally abused! But God`s word tells us completely different ,he tells us in 1 Corinthians 7:15 that he has called us to PEACE, their is no peace in a home were their is abuse.

God`s word is very clear that he wants the best for us.
Jeremiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

If your in an abusive relationship , know that God has not forgotten you and that he has called you to live a life of Peace, Hope and Joy. A spouse that is being abusive is one that does not know Christ as his Lord and Savior.

1 John 4:8
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Love does not take someone and beat them inches from death!

There is a story in the bible about a young women name Abigail , now the bible does not state that she was in a physically abusive relationship but it does state that she was married to a wicked man. Lets us take a look at this verse

1 Samuel 25:3The name of the man was Nabal, and the name of his wife Abigail. And she was a woman of good understanding and beautiful appearance; but the man was harsh and evil in his doings. He was of the house of Caleb.

I urge you to read the rest of 1 Samuel 25, because it goes on to say that God dealt with Abigail`s husband and gave Nabal`s wife to King David. As most of us already know. King David was a mighty man of God, one who had founded favor with God. King David was also well known as a man after the heart of God!

God took Abigail`s disfunctional marriage and gave her a man that would truly love her; For God has called husbands to love their wives and love does not hurt!

Ephesians 5:28

So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,

An abusive relationship is NEVER God`s Plan for our life`s ;But God came that we might have life and have it abundantly. If your are in physically abusive relationship , get out and get help! remember your life holds great value to God!

John 10:10

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️

Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
