Thirteen years ago, I began a relationship that was full of love and hope. A year after we started dating, I became pregnant. I started noticing red flags about our relationship but completely ignored them. My boyfriend repeatedly told me that he would not marry me because I was not worthy and shortly after, the mental, emotional, and verbal abuse began. I thought it was God’s will for us to be together, especially since we had a daughter together.
In March 2020 the abuse became unbearable and I kept accusing God of not showing me a way out. One day, I finally stopped complaining and said to God, “I give up.” Then, one morning, the situation with my boyfriend got serious. I ran with my daughter to the police station because I knew that if I stayed, there would be a tragedy. God had other plans for me that day. After speaking to a judge, the unexpected happened; my boyfriend was removed from our home. Today, I can say that I am the happiest I’ve ever been and I know it’s just the beginning of God’s divine plan for my life.
“Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6.
He has shown me His faithfulness. It wasn’t easy to put my trust in God alone, but He has shown me that He will do anything to make sure His plan for my life is fulfilled. I have completely put my trust in Him because I now know that He is holding me in the palm of His hand. Friend, whatever you are going through, know that He is in control.
“Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10.
I have been hurting too and I can confidently tell you to put your trust and life in His hands. Surrender all and you will see miracles that will give Him the glory, the type of miracles that will keep you in awe and boasting about His goodness for the rest of your life.
How has God shown up for you in expected ways? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

When I thought those years were just a waste of time for me and my family, God had another plan. I am so glad nothing is wasted in God’s hands. He uses every situation and people to encourage others, and I want to be used by Him. He is so amazing!!!

Yes Mary, God was in the details and had everything under control. To God I give all the glory!!! On my own I would have never being able to get out of that situation but God whose never early nor late came right on time. I want everyone to know how much He loves us and that He will save anyone who runs to Him for help.

I can’t imagine the horror of living with a monster! I too was in an abusive (physical) relationship and we have 6 kids! I would have stayed and was willing to sacrifice for the sake of my kids, but when my kids suggest that I leave, then I just had to go away and went to the USA from Manila.

Thank you Maricel for your encouraging words. I’m still in a waiting season specially for God to provide financially for me and my family. This past three years have been a struggle but God has been walking with me every step of the way and I’m full of hope, faith, and believing that my breakthrough is closer than I think. Have a blessed day!!!😀
