So many of us hate change in our lives, but I have found that change is a must in order to grow.
Life has a way of throwing punches that we have no way of preparing for. This happened to me in so many different areas of my life over many years. The only comfort I found during these times, was my relationship with Christ. He ended up being the only one that truly understood what I needed and what was happening. He was, and still often is, the only One that truly gets it and knows what direction I should go for help.
When you suffer from domestic violence, many resources either aren't there or aren't helpful in the whole scheme of things. People start giving you their opinion and this may lead you the right way, but it also may lead you the wrong way. It is hard to know what to do when life is turned upside down.
How do we learn to trust what direction to go? How do we learn to get help in the places that we need help in? How do we learn to heal and overcome these issues? I have found that it is only by the love of Christ and His direction for our lives. This statement doesn't mean you will find help within the church building. It may only be found by your own personal relationship with Him. You may still choose wrong and go wrong, but He will be there with you until the end. He won't leave, no matter what anyone tells you. He won't leave you.
Open your heart, let Him in and keep letting Him in no matter what anyone says or does to you. Change is a must in order to grow. He is with you until the end.
