homeless woman and childI can tell you that this post had started out as a “Daily Prompt” then I just decided to use it as a message. It was the first “fictitious” story that I wrote, since I have never been to LA but decided to keep it anyway. Only parts of this is true for me. Unfortunately, I know that most of it is true for many women…. You see, I met some of these woman as I sought refuge in a “Women’s Shelter” for protection from my abuser. These women do leave with only the shirts on their back. They leave everything behind to protect themselves and their children.
I urge you to read this story / poem and realize the brokenness that these abuse victims and homeless people face to even get them to the situation that they are in. Sometimes we need to just open our eyes and see the pain… then open our hearts to them… THE CYCLE OF ABUSE HAS TO BE BROKEN!

My first place to visit,
is the big city of LA.
Beautiful sites to see,
but none seen today.
I see the distraught,
homeless and broke.
Many in denial;
Thinking it must be a joke.
Millions visit the cities,
and look at the sites.
Never stopping to notice,
homeless people and their plight.
Then I see it!
something catches my eye!
A homeless woman and a child,
then I hear the other cry.
Nestled in her arms,
hidden from view,
A crying baby,
while the mom cries too.
No food, no water,
no money to buy.
They are tired and hungry,
and all just cry and cry.
I give them food and water,
and get them a room to stay.
Then asked the question,
How could this happen to people today?
The story that she told,
just broke my heart.
Then she said that’s not all,
it’s only the start.
The love of her life,
she met on a date.
But his lies and deceit
determined her fate.
Beat and raped,
two children she bore.
She really loved him,
but he called her his whore.
The attacks kept coming,
with drugs every night.
But when he touched her children,
She ran from his sight.
She grabbed the kids
with the clothes on their back.
With a vow to her and the kids,
she would never go back.
Homeless and broke,
living on the street.
She said at least they are safe,
and won’t get beat.
She tolerated the abuse,
was frequently black and blue,
But when he abused the children,
She knew what she had to do.
Protect the children!
Was the thought in her mind.
As she ran through the darkness,
leaving everything behind!

Philippians 4:19… “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer: Lord, protect us from the abuses of this world that lead to total brokenness. Reveal yourself, turning hearts to you. Rescue us! Deliver us! Provide safe housing and provision for all victims who need to escape their abusers. We cry out to You in Jesus’ name.. Amen.

    Help us Lord to move in Your time, as You lead, to help rather than rest comfortably in our homes. Give us your way to provide relief and send us Your Word and those who will collaborate in the work that will draw the abused to You and glorify Your Name. Provide SecretAngel with Your wisdom and discernment and courage and teach her Your ways. In Jesus Name. Amen.

      AMEN… Yes, Lord…I stand in agreement and pray for You to teach me, equip me, and guide me Lord that Your Will shall be done as You lead me on this calling that You have placed on me. I thank You for my sister in Singapore and others around the world that You will bring together in collaboration for Your Mighty Move to help the abused and fight this spiritual war that is hurting your children. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Domestic violence, drug abuse, alcohol abuse… all of these abuses lead to homelessness as many are forced out of their homes whether for safety reasons or financial reasons.
