“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.” —ORSON WELLES
Women in abusive relationships are threatened, beaten and convinced they are not worthy of real love. Over time, a caustic view of their own worth becomes their new normal.
Last week, we helped a neighbor caught in this caustic cycle of abuse. For years, her pastor faithfully shared a better path and story for her life. Thankfully, this time, she made the decision to begin a new chapter. She is safe now, setting up her own home, surrounded by expressions of God’s love given through His people.
We never know where we are, or what role we are playing in someone else’s story. But we can be sure that when we are faithful to share God’s story of redemption, there is always hope.
