You can only be delivered from an abusive past, with the help of God!
Wayne was beaten by an alcoholic father, ever since he was a little boy; but he recalls his mother getting the worst of it.
Eventually, his father abandoned his family, which came as a relief to him. He found himself the new head of the household, but soon turned to various forms of crimes; eventually turning to alcohol as a way of escape, only to find himself wallowing in misery.
An accident that nearly cost him his life, was his salvation, for God had sent an angel to him, on that fateful day!
Psalm 10:17-18 (KJV)
17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
Psalm 34:18 (KJV)
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Romans 8:14-16 (KJV)
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Galatians 5:1 (KJV)
5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
