MY STORY OF SEXUAL ABUSE
Hi my name is Sarah.
When I was 6 years old.
I was sexually abused.
I was too young to know it was wrong.
So he just kept doing it and I told no one.
It made feel so Ashamed.
I didn’t understand why God would let this happen to me?
I didn’t understand why God just couldn’t just make it stop?
If He created the universe, surely he could keep me from this?
I couldn’t tell anyone,
I felt so dirty,
Like it was my fault.
It was my little secret…..
Until one day I just had enough.
I knew it was time to bring it into the light.
So I faced my fear,
And I told someone.
It was like a weight lifted of my shoulders,
And I realized I wasn’t alone.
I found peace and comfort in sharing my story.
Gods love began to heal the broken pieces
It wasn’t easy.
I didn’t feel better all at once.
But today I know I’m not defined.
By what happened to me.
It wasn’t my fault.
I had something taken from me,
I didn’t choose it.
I have learnt to forgive.
Not for his sake but mine.
It’s been a journey.
With God by my side.
Today I feel,
Today I am FREE.
You can be too.
Bring it into the light.
“He gives beauty for ashes, joy for mourning. The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” Isaiah 61:3
