Adaeze Yobo wrote this powerful massage after read the sad story of the woman & mother of 2 who was beaten to death by her husband yesterday. Adaeze then took to her instagram page to share a power message to women in Abusive Marriages.
Read her take below:
So sad!!! Marriage is not by force. Heck! Everybody must not marry. The society you’re worried about don’t even care about you. They are the same ones saying RIP on LIB. Pls think about it. Your life matters too. If you are in a similar situation pls pls pls walk out, whatever shame you are trying to hide will still be out there. Its not worth it. You haven’t fullfilled Gods plan&purpose in your life, I beg you not to be selfish. Your purpose in this life is bigger than you, bigger than your husband, bigger than marriage. Never apologise to anyone for leaving a (physically) abusive relationship. ”Ephesians 5:25 says men shld love their own wives as christ loved the church” ~ he gave up his life for us. Then Ephesians 5:28 says husbands shld love their wives as their own bodies”. The same Bible that is against divorce says in 1 corinthians 7:15 that if an unbeliever departs, (from marriage) let him depart” then goes further to say that “a believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances, God has called us to live in peace” if your partner physically abuse you, he has departed from the marriage vows, pls walk away, he doesn’t fear God and if he doesn’t fear God, he is capable of doing the worse to you. I repeat “Your purpose is bigger”, we need you in the world, dont let the devil cut your life short. pray pray pray, RIP Ronke shonde #notodomesticviolence
