Victim of Hate 4 of 5

VICTIM OF HATE ©Donna Reiners

The shelter of pain

My siblings grew up under the shelter of pain, rejection, beatings and misunderstandings. We were not the Christ filled, love centered home. We had a daddy who had grown up in the depression in a household where you got three bullets and a gun and your grocery store was located in the nearby forest. If you came back with only 1 bullet, the rule was that you had to also come back with two rabbits. Dad had been brought up by a mom who had been married and divorced nine times before her death at 91. So, he never knew the loving kindness of a father figure. He only knew the betrayal and abandonment of one woman and nine men. Our dad was a drill instructor in the navy, back when beating the troops was just a part of the day-to-day training. Our mom was born in obscurity and embarrassment and poverty. Because of her own shame, rejection and abandonment issues, she rarely stood up to the violence and anger alcohol brought into the home. So, it is understandable that all my sisters knew how to give was the very thing they had been given – abuse. Our parents had each been a victim of hate and us kids too had each been a victim of hate.

But we did not have to remain victims. There is a place inside where you grab hold of Truth and become victorious. You must decide today to #BEBRAVER than ever and get free from your past. Your past does not have to be your today. Your parent’s abuse is not your today. Grab hold of God and let God’s Truth give you a new today. Today, you turn to victory in Jesus name. Let it be.

  1. Donna,

    Your beautiful heart is proof that love( for God is love) is victorious over hate if we all just …get up, take up our beds, and move along and forward…walking in Christ and His wonderful healing that comes by the renewing of our minds with His Word. For His Word is indeed, alive and active, able to pierce bone, joint, marrow. His truth will indeed set us free from chains of sin and bondage. My heart aches for you and your family for all you have suffered. And, I rejoice with you in His truth that The Lord does indeed make beauty from ashes and works ALL things together for good for those who love Him. Keep your hand on the plow sweet sister in Him. Your healing will be used in healing many others. Love you. Gather up the harvest… Listening for the trumpets, waiting, watching. He has come and will come again.
