It is common amongst abuse survivors, especially pertaining to those who have gone through childhood abuse, that nearness to the Lord can be difficult. For me, it had the opposite affect. In fact, the safest place for me to be is in the presence of the Lord.
His intentions are always good, and are never to harm those in His care. He didn’t create us to be abused, but created us with the ability to cope, so that we could survive if we needed to. The enemy however, after causing such harm, such pain, and such destruction, tries then to deceive hearts who have been wounded into believing that the Lord allowed harm. He attempts to push the blame on God who is Holy! When it is the enemy who is evil, who is deceptive and who is cruel.
I am thankful that from a young age, the Lords kindness was made known to me. Before my innocence was lost, I remember as a child, eagerly waiting to pray. Loving to meet the Lord with the words of my lips, and the whole of my heart. I knew…that He was good…that He was kind…and that there could be no other like Him.
Some reading this right now, may be on the other side of knowing. On the side of still feeling walled up…I want you to know that the Lord loves you, He is safe, in fact He is the safest place you could ever find yourself. Your heart is always securely held in the palm of His hands. I pray that this blesses you and sets your heart free to know the true love of the Father. Even if it’s just the first steps of cracking the door of your heart. If you taste, you will see that He is good. He will bring healing where the enemy brought so much destruction. He will bring wholeness, and purpose, and in the areas where the enemy stole, the Lord will give you back more beauty, fulfillment and life than you could have ever imagined. May God bless you and keep you always. 🤍
