“You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.”— Ephesians 5:8
I was saved when I was ten. So I knew God was with me. I never doubted that. I prayed everyday for a miracle and a way out. The abuse with my ex lasted ten years and looking back I now see why. But, God didn’t leave me. He had a plan for me. I was scared and didn’t listen until it was almost to late. That week before I was able to escape I dreamed what would happen if I didn’t go. I could see my babies crying for me from the earth as I was saying goodbye to them. It was very emotional and I woke up in a panic and crying. I felt that urgency from the holy spirit telling me , he would kill me soon. I didn’t want my babies left without me. So I made an escape plan quickly that week. I finally decided to be afraid of God and not a man. What could man do to me. If I died I would at least know where I would be. I feared him way to long and wasted yet another year. I finally put my whole trust in God. I literally told God okay, keep us safe and we will try and escape. We left on foot because I didn’t have a car. We never looked back since. The Lord provided ever since that day. It was really amazing to see the steps and how he provided for us. We were able to get a ride one place to our destination of a women’s shelter. Finally at peace but a long road ahead we had to go.
