A great reminder! Pastor Steven Furtick, quote from the sermon It's All Part of the Plan.
It doesn’t matter if they’re 32 or 62. It doesn’t matter if they’re overt or covert. It doesn’t matter what ‘kind’ of abuser they are. Stop looking for the ‘why’ of their abuse. They abuse because they’re an abuser. That’s what abusers do. They abuse in public, they abuse in secret, they abuse in your dreams, in your heart, in your soul. They abuse in code. They abuse in all languages and religions. You know you’re being abused by the way it feels. That’s all you need to know.
†♥ clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.
