Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor

14. Protection

Of all the things to pray for, protection has always been the one elusive prayer. So many times I felt unprotected and vulnerable to someone. God, was I just not worth protecting? Was I just not able to be treasured enough to bring out of the pit? Do I have to go through life thinking that, like Joseph, the pit was necessary to grow me up to be Pharaoh's right hand man/woman? How can I protect myself and anyone else who might be vulnerable to what I experienced? I am not a fatalist, and I believe that this wasn't supposed to happen, but as awful as the experience has been, I can use it for good. I can protect other people because I know signs that other people don't see. I know that what I went through was not good for me, but hurt my body, spirit and soul way too much. But I know that I can protect myself, and others if I sit down and think about ways to protect myself and others.
