Prayers by D. White
Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor
After abuse, going to church is different for
each of us. It may be that our ideas of you, God, have been challenged, or
even warped. It may be our comfort level has changed, and the ways we
interpret certain things are not the same anymore. Finding the right
church for us may take several attempts, several visits, to very different
churches. It may be that we have to be satisfied with comments that we
find jarring, but are nothing to other people. It may mean trying to
figure out what is spiritual to us. Our level of involvement may change
with churches because we refuse to buy into some of the ideas in some
churches. It could be that there needs to be more healing of our minds,
bodies and souls for us to be comfortable in a group setting or in
ministry again. God, you have the answers and the questions to our faith.
You know when we will be ready to be involved in church. It may never be
the same, but then, faith is a gift from you, so I depend on you to gift
me with enough faith to worship you, commune with you, and hear your
guidance. Your guidance is my anchor.
Hope You were encouraged.
Please come back anytime.
