Don't Survive, Thrive
For a long time, all I did was survive! My survival looked like me, keeping a secret and self-medicating with alcohol. I trusted no one and was angry all the gosh darn time. At that point in my life, I didn't know what was thriving. But it was last year in June that I was able to open up that wound and let it heal. Do I still have cry for no reason days? Yes. Do I still have trust issues? Yes. Do I still blame myself for something I didn't do? Nope. Do I still ask God, where He was when I was being molested and raped? No. But I will tell you this, I still ask why? Let's be honest, it's a LONG and HARD journey some days are easy and some are a bit hard. But through it all, I have learned to take refuge in God and to give it all to Him. This takes time to heal, it takes time to forgive, it takes time to just breathe and be comfortable in your own skin. It takes time. And for me, it took 23 years for you it may take more or less. The point I am trying to convey here is don't just go through this world surviving but thrive.
It can feel like a lonely and scary world for persons who have been sexually abused. Who to trust? Where can you feel safe? Who can I count on to be there for me? Well, my friend, it is so comforting to know that the Lord is here for you, He is close to the brokenhearted and the crushed in spirit and He wants to be there for you. But YOU have to let Him in. This kit is perfect for people who have been sexually assaulted and those who want to bring awareness and support to the people in their life.
