Finding you? Your Purpose in Life

When we stay in abusive relationships we suffer and our children suffer the most.  Most times we lose us, our purpose and dreams in life, only to survive.  It’s time to get back to finding you!

Your Purpose in LIfe

What did Jesus say? After praying and read the Word of God.Read these scriptures

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

A life without purpose is like a car without a steer wheel.  We lose so much of us when we give our abuser the power to control our life.  Living everyday is a struggle for us but we can that by trusting in God having a personal relationship with Him.  Once we have that personal relationship, we will begin to love ourself.  When we love us, then we will make better choices.  Only then, we will leave that abusive relationship and the only thing we can offer them is our prayers and forgiveness.  Before you leave your abuser make sure you have a safe place to stay along with your information papers like birth certificates,social security cards, passports, life insurance papers, bonds, bank accounts, immunization records and please notify the schools and take his name off the emergency contacts.   Because only God can change people. if they let Him.

God is all knowing, so He is better to guide our life.  We can always trust God because He is the same. yesterday and forever more.  But people do change and some times its not for the better.

Ask yourself these questions to find out and write them down to hold your self accountable.

What is your purpose in life?

What do you feel deep in your spirit?

What ignites your passion in your soul?

What comes nature for you?

What idea or ideas you can’t let go of?

What can you do for free?

What do you do and you forget about the time?

Once you answer all these questions, you should know your purpose.

Happy finding,

God bless and remember to share to be a blessing to someone else.

The Cycle of Abuse

Domestic violence is very serious it can affect men, women and children.  Most cases is men hitting, punching, threatening and emotionally abuses women.  But men can get abused too.  It also affects children growing seeing and hearing their parents fight.

It kills your spirit, causes depression and low self-esteem.

The Cycle of Abuse goes in a circle like this:  Abuse he feel guilty, make excuses then the fantasy you get the flower, candy, sweet takes and making love then the setup, the abuse come again.

Verbal, physical and emotional abuse done to your spouse or partner to dominate and control them.

Excuses

Normal behavior

The first step is recognizing the abuse.  Once you realize, decide if you are going to leave or stay in the relationship.  Please protect yourself and its people and agencies out there to help.

I will be giving you the steps in my next post.
