Instagram News1 John 4:18 - Every one of us faces fears. I have plenty of my own: fear that I won’t be the mom my kids need, fear that I won’t be able to provide for their needs, fear that they will be forced into toxic relationships, fear that they inherited npd disorders, fear that they will never get to experience a truly loving father/child relationship, fear that they will be damaged psychologically from what happened. So. Many. Fears. I could allow these fears to overtake me. But I choose love. I choose to live in the perfect love that only God can supply, which chases away my fears. How does it do that? By reassuring me that He is in control and that He has my life and my kids lives in His loving arms. So the troubles don’t disappear, but the fear of what the future holds for us fades. #hopeforabusesurvivors #liveinlove #perfectlove #onlygodsloveisperfect #chaseawaythefear #letthefearfallaside #handlettering #handletteredhope #handletteredbibleversePsalm 34:18 - Comforting words when you are going through some major life struggles. ❤️ #handletteredbibleverse #handletteredhope #handlettering #hopeforabusesurvivors #thelordisclose #neverlosefaith #neverlosehopeProverbs 19:1 - I’d much rather be rich in spirit and love than well off but a fool and a liar. #handlettering #handletteredbibleverse #hopeforabusesurvivorsGalatians 5:22-23 - Beware of people that speak about these qualities in themselves, but do not show it. Focusing on the last quality - self-control - this includes taking responsibility for your own actions. We need to be in control of our own choices, no matter what we are feeling. No excusing them onto others or blaming the situation for how we react to it. We have free will to do Good or Evil. When we choose to live out these fruits of the spirit, we are choosing Good. #goodvsevil #fruitofthespirit #liveoutyourfaith #notjustwords #showit #dontsayit #yourchoice #hopeforabusesurvivors #handlettering #handletteredhope #handletteredbibleverse1 John 3:8 - If you want to be able to spot abusers, always look at their consistent actions. They may make short lived changes, but they will always fall back into their abusive nature. They “make a practice” of it and what we practice is what we are. Notice the red flags and the signs. They are always repetitive as they cycle through the false apologies and fake kindness and then back into the emotional and mental abuse. This kind of consistently wrong behavior is of the devil and you need to run if you are in this kind of relationship. Get to a safe place and start healing. #ifmywoundswerevisible #narcissisticabuse #emotionalabuse #mentalabuse #repetitive #noticethepattern #narcissism #ofthedevil #hopeforabusesurvivors #handlettering #handletteredhope #handletteredbibleverseProverbs 16:30 - Imagine someone closing their eyes, shutting themselves off to the truth and to the reality of their sin. This verse warns against people who are unwilling or unable to see their destructive abusive behavior and who shut their eyes to it. They plan dishonest things, but they don’t see it as dishonest. This is the definition of a narcissistic sociopath, and it’s important to recognize this kind of denial of sinful behavior that they display. Remember that no one can change unless they are willing to see the need for change and do the work to change. #hopeforabusesurvivors #cantchangewontchange #blindtotruth #handlettering #handletteredhope #handletteredbibleverse #ifmywoundswerevisible
