Victim of Hate 5 of 5

Nowhere to Run

I grew up with a sister who wanted to love me but didn’t know how. She wanted to be loved and accepted just as I did; yet she too was unable to find a safe place for her heart. Frankly, I can say the same about sister number 3 and sister number 4 (who has now moved to heaven) – none of them were cared for in a way that made them feel loved, protected, cherished or honored. We were among the many dysfunctional families who did not know how to love or be loved and we had nowhere to run as wherever we ran – there we were. Even talking aloud was an issue because the fear of being verbally rejected was so strong. We wrote letters to each other to ask questions or confront issues. After I gave my life to Jesus, my sisters really wanted nothing to do with me – more than usual. Over time, the Lord melted their hearts and brought them out of their mindset of hatred, not only of me but also of  others. We were being set free. Through the power of consistent love and persistent prayer, each sister embraced love and embraced loving and being loved. Each can now tell you that His Love truly is a force that is stronger than death. Each one belongs to Him.

Never give up on your loved ones who seem to have turned their backs on you. It is not personal! They just need the real love of a tangible God Who loves them unconditionally. So, learn to love those unlovables who scare or intimidate you, and find yourself winning their hearts over to the Lord. Do not allow yourself to be a victim of hate and do not treat others as victims of hate. Let’s Pray together below!

Pray with me

Father, I have let the way others have treated me affect the way I treat myself as well as other people. God, I desire to see them and me through Your eyes so that I can forgive and go on. Jesus, where I have been a victim of hate and where those who have harmed me were victims of hate – God, I CRY OUT TO YOU! Help us oh God for we want to be like You! Surround me with people who have been healed by Your Holy Spirit and understand real pain. I love You and need You to heal my heart and soul and body in Jesus name.

Share with someone who can help others not be a victim of hate.

She hated me

VICTIM OF HATE ©Donna Reiners
NO LONGER A VICTIM!

When I was born, rumor has it that my older sister was sick with something contagious and unable to see me for at least two weeks. All she could hear from the top of the stairs was ooooh and ahhhh over this little newborn baby sister who displaced her position as the youngest. From what I understand, she was ignored and it really hurt her feelings. I certainly can understand – can’t you? She was already part of a world where she was abused and neglected by the very ones who were supposed to protect her. Our parents had no idea how to love or be loved. In addition, she was a little seven-year old girl whose world was rapidly changing, and I was a major cause of it. She moved from being Daddy’s little princess to being the 3rd daughter, and surely it hurt. What do you do when you are a little girl in pain with no one safe to talk to? The enemy comes to talk to you and bring you into an inward world filled with his thoughts. He turns us inward so that we can become a victim of hate.

From the moment she learned of my conception, thoughts of resentment from the enemy began to filter into her pure and sweet young mind, and by the time I was born, hatred had also been born and she, without realizing it, hated me. She didn’t want to hate me, but she did and in our family, she was the enemy’s next victim of hate.

Question – do you see yourself as a victim? It took years for her to be free but she is free and you can be as well! My sister loves me and we both love one another with a depth that only God could have brought to us. HEALING brings you from victim to victory. I’ll be explaining more in part 3.

Father, I pray that Your truth will penetrate our hearts. Let Your mentality come forth and let us become VICTORS in Jesus name. Let it be!

To be continued…

Send this to friends who need some help coming out from being a victim of hate.
