Sin came into the world by disobedience, and excuses followed. The serpent made me do it… the woman you gave me made me eat…I hit her because she…I’m still here because…. But Jesus said “Get up, pick up your bed and walk” Genesis 2:16, 17; John 5:8, Romans 12:1. Stop the excuses.
To the perpetrator STOP making excuses for domestic abuse it is a Crime, unproductive, useless, worthless, and pathetic.
To the victim/survivor STOP making excuses you may have been in your situation 1, 2, 5, 25, or 38 years, but now it’s time to arise out of your affliction.
STOP feeling guilty, being ashamed, and fearful, of your situation.
And Think… “Do I really want a better life”?
If the answer is “Yes” GET UP!
You have the cure to stop domestic violence in your life –your mind.
Pick up your bed of affliction and walk, for the Lord your God is with you to see you through being transformed and renewed in your mind.
“…for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye.” Zechariah 2:8b. Amplified Bible

Here’s the answer.
“For I am the Lord your God the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt, Ethiopia and Seba as a ransom for your freedom. Others died that you might live. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored and I love you.” Isaiah 43:-3. (NLT) New Living Translation Bible.
