Arising from the Doorstep

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you. 
Therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. 
For the Lord is a God of justice. 
Blessed are all who wait for him. 
Isaiah 30:18 

Domestic abuse, the violence that occurs within our homes and our most cherished relationships, is a robber and a thief. It inflicts pain upon all those it touches. It robs its victims of their identity. It silences the voice that strains to be heard. It strips away personal power. It can be deadly. 

Yet the damage of domestic abuse can be redeemed. Pain can be healed, name recovered, voice reclaimed, and self empowered. 

This resource is a journal which offers hope to those robbed by abuse. Primarily focused toward women (statistically the majority of victims of abuse), its questions are appropriate for people of both genders who have been hurt by those they have loved. 

A word of caution: Keep these pages in a safe place, so that they cannot be used to harm you. It may be helpful to have a friend, pastor, or counselor to talk with regarding your journey down this road. 

A word of promise: And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:7)
