THE SILENT STARS

THE SILENT STARS


They play an important role in life, yet they go unnoticed. They wear many hats for their friends and families. They’re like flowers growing in a patch of weeds and have so much love to give, but they are crushed by the violent and cruel treatment of their spouse. They seldom speak up, because no one listens, or they keep silent to protect their children. Some of them build a wall around their heart or retreat into a shell. Others live in hope that one day things will change; yet some never live to see that day. They store up anger, bitterness and resentment in their hearts.
Who are these Silent Stars? They are battered and abused wives who silently suffer physical, mental and verbal abuse. Some find a way out and seek help, and others wait for that day that never comes.
The physical scars heal with time, but the psychological scars go much deeper and take longer to heal. Healing of the mind and memories requires Spiritual surgery by the almighty, God, and sometimes counseling and therapy.
I was one of these Silent Stars, and stored up anger, bitterness and un-forgiveness in my heart, and lived like an emotional time bomb, which finally exploded. My self-confidence and self-esteem had reached their lowest point.
Through much prayer, counseling, and therapy I received healing from the Great Physician, and learned to forgive. Thank God that I have regained all that is rightfully mine. May all the Silent Stars find the joy and happiness that I have found, and the important thing to remember is; “The joy of living is forgiving.”


This was my prayer while I was going through the healing process:

God, You’ve restored my faith in You,
And You are restoring my trust in people.
My self-esteem has elevated,
And I know I can soar to the highest,
And excel in all that I do.
I am what You made me,
And I have emerged
Like a butterfly out of its cocoon.
I am important to my family and myself,
But most of all
I am important to You.
I play an important part in life,
And self-esteem is what I’ve gained.
Thanks God.
