Have you ever run across someone who blatantly refuses God? Or becomes angry when you come to The Lord? Yeah, me too. Many times the Abuser gets jealous of a woman’s relationship with God and God’s people. They suddenly realize they are not on the throne anymore. The Abuser is not God. No matter how many times he tells you he is. It’s a lie.

You can tell this was written from my angry days. From when I wish he would just go away. It is normal to be angry when someone you thought was supposed to love you treats you that way. It wasn’t love. It was abuse. If you are living in a violent relationship, get help today. Get out while you still can. And heal, with God’s help.

Here’s an old poem I found from my journals when I was living in Domestic Violence.

DROWNING IN FEAR

©2014 Diana Rasmussen

Living in the land of the shadows
Holding a bow with broken arrows
Shooting at all who God calls hallowed
He’d rather steal, kill, and borrow

He fell into his bottle of sorrows
Drowning in the fear of tomorrows

Determined to refuse God’s promises
Trades the Truth for a Lie just to wallow
The dead man refuses to follow
The God who cares for the sparrows

He fell into his bottle of sorrows
Drowning in the fear of tomorrows
