Was God there?
Before age 5 I was abused. It was someone who was in the family. Then as time went on there were more people that abused me. My last count of how many people that abused me is 9...My abusers were mostly family members but there were others outside of the family there was also a pastor. I know that it seems crazy and scary all at the same time. I started to believe that I was only alive for one thing. I cried out to God many times to just take my life or to end the abuse. He never did. When I got older I walked away from God it was like well what happened to this God who did all of these miracles who is supposed to be compassionate and loving Where was He?
It wasn't until recently that I realized that He was there more than I knew. He stopped me from being killed he stopped me from killing myself. DOn't get me wrong everytime I have a nightmare I get mad at Him but then come back he was there with all of us..We survived.
Sure we are all reliving it now but we have to remember that He will help us through again.
I don't know why he allows abuse but if we can use our experience to help others through what they are going through then maybe that is why we went through it.
