There was a time when I thought, there are no scriptures in the Bible that address domestic violence. I felt like a wolf, howling at the moon, alone and putting up a brave front. I never heard about domestic violence from the pulpit. Since I could not find scriptural references and the Bible was not helping, I kept my silence.
Reading the article above made me realize that the spiritual stigma surrounding the church is staggering. Why do pastors, clergy and church leaders not recognize the intense need for training.
The pastor that mentored me for my call into the ministry told me that I did not discern scripture correctly if I could not see how scripture applied to my life. I did re-read it, applied it to my life and let the word of God set me free.
Now when I how at the moon, I have hope. I have purpose and I know that love does not punish, does not control but heals and revives. Let your full moon rise! Be free!
