13. Reach A Hand Children’s Ministry And Orphanage
October 24, 2017
Do not die in silence. If you are being abused by your spouse, report the abuser to the police immediately, seek legal help and protect yourself from further abuse before you seek therapy. Don’t seek the abuser’s permission to report the abuse and don’t be deceived by the abuser’s repeated fake apologies and empty promises that the abuse will not happen again. It will happen again and it will get worse. An abuser will not stop the abuse until they are held legally responsible for their actions or until they have faced painful consequences for their action. After you have reported the abuse, do NOT allow anyone including the police or the abuser to talk you into dropping the charges. Let the law take its course. As a condition for reconciliation, demand that the abuser go through and complete a verifiable abuse counseling and anger management program. Don’t entertain the thought that you deserve the abuse. Regardless of what you have done, your spouse does not have right to inflict physical or emotional pain on you. Don’t be statistics. Too many people die at the hands of their spouses every day. Don’t die for your children, live for them.
