I remember waking up one morning and seeing my mom’s face beat to a bloody pulp. She had been out partying when her boyfriend snuck up on her and accused her of cheating. Before she could say anything, he threw her down on the floor, straddled her and beat her senseless. Two of my siblings were present at the time mom was attacked, I can’t remember which two. Word had circulated that a man was physically abusing an older woman. By the time my siblings came to her rescue, she was laying in a pool of blood. Her boyfriend fled the scene. This same man wrestled her to the ground once before and tried to bash her head in with a brick. Josh and I cried for him not to do it. Josh tried to stop him, he was only ten at the time – no match for a grown man.

Get Thee Behind Me will be part of I Am My Mother’s Daughter video – Abuse is abuse no matter how you look at it.

This concludes Mimi Jenkins’ Moment of Truth

The rest of the world stood still as I wonder my place within it.

How could it be something so large and I stand alone to defend myself against flesh…world…Satan.

It’s not so I do it alone, but through God’s grace and mercy, I shall overcome all that try and steal my soul…I shall make the enemy my footstool.

A little taste of “Get Thee Behind Me”
