HE LIFTS US UP: Message to Teens: Kindness and Respect is What You Should Expect

So much Teen Dating Violence…
and there is something that I want to share.
Though you teens think we don’t understand…
I can promise you that many of us have been there.

Being bullied and harassed…
almost everyday of my life,
brought feelings of loneliness and unworthiness…
and acceptance of a life of strife.
I was bullied at home and school…
so what more was I to expect.
I just wanted someone to love me…
with a little kindness and respect.
I prayed for love…
and looked in all the wrong places…
Then I met a guy…
but he has a mask of many faces.
He was so nice at first…
and I thought he was the greatest guy.
But many years later…
I found out it was all a lie.
He was a liar and deceiver…
a master of control.
But before I knew it…
he had control of my soul.
He was angry and abusive…
with criticisms galore.
But I was too weak and broken…
to walk out the door.
Remember, abuse is progressive,
increasing with time.
And even though I saw clues,
I chose to ignore the warning signs.
Planning our future together…
we planned to be man and wife.
I was expecting love and joy…
definitely not an abusive life.
So these warning signs are real…
Dating violence leads to domestic violence…
So don’t tolerate signs of abuse…
and please don’t accept it in silence.
Find someone to talk to…
abuse is not something to accept.
We should all be treated lovingly,
with kindness and respect.

Dear Lord, You see the broken around the world and where the source of brokenness lurks. Nothing is hidden from You. You see the abuse, bullying, and harassment that many experience from homes, schools, and workplaces. Empower Your children to walk away from these abuses and speak out. Deliver Your children from the bondage that holds them captive and from the attacks that inflict these wounds. Protect Your children and bring them into Your Presence so they will know come to know You as their source for overcoming all that we come against… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
