As I look back, I am so happy that I am so content because of what is now in you—my heart. My past had quite a bit of downs, especially physical abuse mixed with the abusers being alcoholics or drug addicted. I have learned through spiritual growth not to dwell upon my past mistakes, wrongs, sins, or any of the negative that happened in my life. I try, instead,to think about my many blessings as I pray and try to honor God with praise and reading His word and trying to bring happiness in some way to others; however, I do sometimes wonder what is the common denominator that makes men abusers. Is it from low self esteem or because they have the power to overcome a weaker person or did they learn abusive behavior? Do they have so much anger and/or frustration built up within themselves? Are they feeling unaccomplished or disenchanted with how their lives turned out? Whatever the reason(s), the abuse they afflict upon another can and often times leave lasting scars, which, in turn, can make for a worse world. My dear heart, I ask you to always focus upon good things and try to spread good things—the kind of things that will make happy or happier hearts. I pray that those who are busing others will see how what they are doing are affecting someone negatively and is therefore affecting the world negatively and dishonoring God. Let us pray for the spiritual growth of everyone in the name of our Lord Jesus.
