HE LIFTS US UP: Domestic Violence: How do the Kids Feel?

Domestic violence…
it’s effects are real.
Harming its victims…
but how do the kids feel?

Though the children…
may not be the target.
They feel the fear…
and they won’t forget.

Fear for their mom…
running for her life.
Knowing their dad…
wants to kill his wife.

Fearing the danger…
they sense at night.
Feeling he’s near…
just out of sight.

Wanting their mom…
to learn defense.
In case he returns…
with more violence.

Many of our kids…
know what’s true.
They saw the anger…
and felt it too.

For these children…
are victims too.
Seeing the abuse…
when no others knew.

For these secrets…
were hidden at home.
Only to these victims…
the abuse was shown.

So as children grow…
and they get older.
The protection of mom…
they feel on their shoulder.

And this feeling…
my kids have today.
To take care of mom…
in a protective way.

But we all know…
that it’s God up above.
Who has protected us…
with His amazing Love.

Praise God!

Dear Lord, I praise You for what You have done for me and my children and thank You for protecting us. We ask You to help many more. Set them free from the abuse of their past and lead them into their future with you. Protect Your children around the world, delivering them from evil and blessings them as You call them into Your army to help others… in Jesus Name, we pray. Amen.

    …and for the children who still must stay with the abuser for visits. God please protect them from harm until they return to us…
