This blog seeks to address domestic violence as a whole and to address the myths that are out there regarding this subject. Through this blog, It is also my hope to bring hope and healing to everyone who has been affected by DV as well as raise awareness to those who have not. Domestic Violence happens to men, women, teens, and children. It does not discriminate against gender, race, socioeconomic status or any other factor. We all have to do our part in order to combat domestic violence.

Suffer in Silence? I Dare not!( A Poem about Domestic Violence)
wake up to the sound of him walking around the room.
assume that something is going to happen soon.
could get hit me, he could curse me; he could seriously hurt me if he dares.
drags me out the bed and out the room.
heart is hurting, my mind is pounding, and I’ve got to get out of here soon.
begins to attempt to sedate me so that he can rape me
I noticed that silence fills the room.
I not have any cry in me left or have I lost my voice?
tired of screaming and shouting only for my cries to go unnoticed.
for my tears to just dry up while I’m being ignored but being silent keeps me
in a prison.
have no one to turn too but I also haven’t really turned to anyone
every time someone gets close to me,
allow the threats of this fool to disturb my cool.
I’m no longer cool, instead I’m warm feeling unloved and torn apart.
he attempts to rape me I think to myself, dare I be silent?
should I dare to make a noise that sounds so loudly like a lion’s roar?
the worst that could happen, maybe I could get some courage and turn crazy and
I be silent? I dare not!
been silent for too long, whose going to stand up for me if not me?
I speak up I might live to share my story,
to share the triumph with women who will go through this after me or even with
shall give God praise in a unique crazy way,
know the psalms of protection, psalms 91 that’s my real weapon
it’s bigger and more powerful than any physical weapon.
put on the whole armor of God, now I’m a warrior, now God is carrying me
through. Before I know it, he has left the room.
I am more than a conqueror.
I have called the police and I am determined never to look back.
matter what happens. I will leave and I will live and I will be free.
to be the me that I never knew.
I must say; that my heavenly father loved me enough to rescue me and deliver me
from the fowler’s snare.
earthly man can trap me and keep me under their authority.
have learned that God gave me the authority to trample on lions and serpents
and I will do just that the next time a man thinks he will put his hands on me
even fix his mouth to disrespect me.
to God for He is a healer, He is my shield during the storm,
is the one that makes me whole; the one who can also make you whole.
set free from the misery so that you can experience the true happiness and
freedom that God has created for you.
are fearfully and wonderfully made, believe it and receive it!
Father God, Lord Jesus
I come to you praying on behalf of all domestic violence victims, survivors and anybody that has ever been affected by Domestic Violence.
Lord I asked that you cover them with your sons(Jesus) blood.
I ask Lord that you cover them with your wings and be their refuge.
Lord I pray that you give them strength to fight back spiritually and that you deliver them and heal them.
Lord I pray that you give them peace, strength, hope, wisdom and love.
Lord we don't always know why situations happen or what we should do regarding them
But Lord I pray that you helped them realize that they are fearfully and wonderfully made
and that you love them and would never do anything to harm them.
I ask Father God that you dispatch your angels concerning them and lift them up to you,
Because you Lord are where their help comes from.
Please send them people who are understanding and willing to help.
I pray a hedge of protection over all of their lives in Jesus Name Amen.
Have you ever been going through something that you held in for a long time, but once you finally told somebody about it, they did not believe you? If you have experienced this, then you can relate to what a lot of people that have experienced domestic violence have gone through. Many times it is hard for a person that has experienced domestic violence to reach out to someone. Most times people won't believe them. The most common reason that people say they do not believe a person is because they did not speak out about it before hand.
Here is a scenario: Let's say that there is a woman who is in a abusive relationship with her husband. Lets say that he emotionally, financially, and physically abuses her everyday. The woman has drifted off and does not associate with her family and friends as much as she use to because of the abuse. Her friends and family say that she is acting funny because she is married. They have no idea what she is going through and when she does bring h…
Today, I have another Guest Post. I am excited about this one and this is a topic that is dear to me but that I have not written about here. Melissa actually takes a turn with this one because she is not talking about the batterers and alcoholism but rather how the person that is being abused uses alcoholism as a coping mechanism.
This guest post comes from Mrs. Melissa Kluska. Here is a little about Melissa:
Melissa currently writes for organizations such as St Jude Retreats, an alternative solution to traditional alcohol and drug rehab. As well as writing for St. Jude’s, Melissa also enjoys writing pieces that will help others on topics like health and relationships.
