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.

Scared.

Broken.

Confused.

 

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,

Clean.

Loved.

Happy.

Secure.

 

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
