Forbidden Romance but God's Forgiving Love
Marcy shuddered as she reflected back to that day when she and her daughter almost lost their lives due to Lester's violent temper.
She and her daughter were scheduled to be in the Christmas play at the church they were attending on Western Avenue, three weeks after the incident occurred. Now with sutures and Band-Aids on their faces, she was concerned about them participating in the play and what to say to the pastor.
Thinking about the injuries they sustained made her reflect back to God's saving grace and the book of the gospel of John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
She also remembered former teachings of hating the sin but loving the sinner, which was definitely the reason she had stayed with Lester for twenty-five years but knew that a decision would have to be made sooner but not later. She trusts that this story will speak to the heart of every woman out there who is living with an abusive and controlling spouse.
