I was sexually abused from the time I was three years old until I moved away from home at the age of sixteen. My father was an alcoholic and my mother abused prescription drugs.
I was unusual as a child, in that I did not keep the abuse a secret. I remember at age six, we all were at the dinner table. I told my mother what my father was doing to me while I would take my naps. I was severely punished by both for speaking “such lies.” It was at that point I learned that I was not safe.
My childhood was not a time of fairy tales, teddy bears, and play. Instead it was a constant battle for survival. My father was a very violent man. He often beat my mother and all six of us…

We have all heard that Jesus is love, that He died and arose, stands at the right hand of God, forgives us of our sins, and that through His death and resurrection that we will have His peace and joy everlasting and spend eternity with Him.
That is all true but those of us that have been wounded deeply can struggle with the peace and joy part. Be it a loss of a loved one, a painful divorce, or the loss of our childhood through childhood sexual and physical abuse. When we are going through those painful memories, when we are struggling with the healing process and facing the giants of abuse issues we question, “Where’s all this peace and joy!?” “I’m hurting now and I sure don’t feel any peace about it and I have no joy.”
We live in an evil world. Evil things happen every minute…

I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. (Luke 12:4-5)
Relate: Today is a pretty rough day in history. Every now and then I go to a site that will tell me what happened on this day in the past. Well, one hundred fifty-three days ago today the Union and the Confederates squared off for what would be the bloodiest battle in the Civil War up to that point, by far. Between the two armies 107,000 collided and over 23,000 were left behind dead, wounded, or missing. The conflict left both armies and the nation in shock and…

“The persecution of Christians are on the rise. Many shall die for the faith. Those who are left are the witnesses of grace and ye shall rejoice in the Lord. The time is near when others will mock and scoff and then fall on their knees begging for mercy. Yet in their terror mercy shall be withheld for their pleas come from fear not repentance.
Stand up children of God, do not compromise for the sake of others. Their comfort leads them to dark corners of vast places that will end in destruction. The world as you know it shall perish beneath your feet. In a blink of an eye it’s over. You shall stand before His Majesty and face the music of your actions. The music can be a dance of joy or a death march. Those righteous ones shall spin and twirl like a child in a playground. Others shall drag their feet, heads bowed in shame. The shackles on their feet shall be a weight so great they cannot move their feet forward or in retreat.
Stand up My children to those who mock. Hold your head high for the glory of the Lord shall radiate from you. It shall be so bright, like the Morning Star, that it will stun the mocker to silence. Love, Christ’s love, cannot be defeated and all you encounter, suffer, sacrifice, is for the glory of the Lord. He is the Majesty, the Holy High God, and He reigns over all that lives and dies. His power is mighty, His love never ending. He is the Most Holy High God and there is none above Him.
Kneel in prayers you sinners for you shall one day. Be blessed by His presence not by His wrath. Carry your swords My warriors for the armies are marching. Slowly, methodically they march with swords drawn. Pray for My people O’Israel for destruction comes like a thief in the night. Your enemies are near and far. Your sanctity is at stake. Stand guard on the towers, at the gates, for your enemy is just beyond the horizon. War is immanent, destruction is near. Fear not for the Lord your Guard is with you and none shall overcome His victory for all who believe.”
