Abuse and It’s Effects~~ “Who I Am?”

This picture touched my heart and I wanted to share. Unfortunately, this happens too often. Too many children are being abused and then considered to have behavioral disorders when they lash out in their pain and brokenness.  But how many parents, teachers, counselors, and even medical professionals really listen to find out what is the source of these behavioral problems. And how many just rather medicate to sedate. Think about it. What if it was your child?

Age I lost my virginity: 5

Number of pictures he took: Too Many

Age at which I told what really happened: 20

Number of therapists: 12

Number of therapists who listened: 1

2 eating disorders, a few scars, an ocean’s worth of tears and countless flashbacks later, I am finally figuring out who I am.

Dear Lord, only You see the countless numbers of children who are being abused, whether verbally, emotionally, physically, and sexually. You see the wounds that have been inflicted upon them to the depths of their souls and spirits. You see the brokenness that has resulted from unwanted and unsolicited touch and various abuses. I pray for healing to every child and every victim of abuse. Touch their hearts and let them know that You are near. Bring deliverance from these abuses with healing and restoration to every victim. Set them free from the guilt and shame that lingers long after the touching has stopped. Give a voice to each victim of abuse, that they will no longer remain silent but will speak out to stop the violence… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    • Thanks for linking my posting and my song. The link for the song was not working so I will try to relink it. Please delete it is still not working. I join you in prayer for all those wounded by abuse… and our prisons are full. Many blessings to you.

      • I’m reading your book. At about 50%. All I can say right now is Wow. I will remember you in my prayers. God has his arms around you my friend.

      • Awe… You have just brought tears to my eyes with your comment. I look forward to hearing from you when you finish. As you read, you will be able to understand where my faith comes from. I praise God for what He has done for me and my children. Thank you so much for your prayers.

  2. As I hit the “like” I thought about how much I DON’T like what happened to this poor little girl. She should’ve been loved, nurtured, protected and valued as a precious princess, but was left defenseless, broken and treated like trash. I abhor it with deep sadness and outrage, but I’m also very thankful for your ministry to expose these evil deeds. God bless you and your ministry!

    • Mel, thank you so much for your encouraging words of support. So much abuse is hidden while victims remain voiceless. Please join me in prayer for all victims, wherever they may be. I pray for deliverance, healing, and restoration for all and that hearts will turn to the One who can help them overcome their destructive pasts and lead them into their futures with Him. God bless you!

  3. Hiding the pain Secretangel does not lessen it but exposing it can bring shame, when I told someone what had happened to me they said I was a slut and asked for it, at the time I was 10, the first time I was molested I was 3 , than , 5 than 6 than 8 and than I was raped when I was not yet 15 by a Doctor, I was too scared to tell anyone, maybe it was all my fault.

    Today I have no pain, I have forgiven and put the hurtful past behind me, I move on and do what God asks us to do…..

    Philippians 4 ( 8- 9 ) Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

    Christian Love – Anne

    • Dearest Anne, I am so sorry that this has happened to you. So much trauma… but praise God for bringing healing and restoration. No child should ever have to endure what you have and then suffer the guilt and shame that keeps them silent for years. You are a testament to God’s promises. We are new creations in Christ. He makes all things new when we accept Him as our Savior and walk into the fullness of our inheritance with Him. You are an inspiration to many. Much love and ((hugs)) coming your way!
