I have to consciously make a choice. To allow God to take the pain and draw me closer to Him, or to allow it to drive a stake through the core of my heart, never allowing Him to come in. Some days, that's a really hard choice to make but, if there is one thing I know about my Jesus, it is that His word is true.
As you well know, the healing process is often painful. That is as true spiritually as it is physically. However, my heart rejoices for I know that God has brought you through so much and He continues to do so.
Please know that you are a vibrant and beautiful testimony of the love, mercy, grace and power of God.
Blessings and Hugs!
God will heal your heart and mind. Don't let that person have any more power over you. God sees you as pure and beautiful. Let it go. Don't obsess about it anymore. Forgive. Let the spirit of God take all the pain away from your heart. Feel the warm love that surrounds you. Thank the Lord for your ability to walk, talk and think. Live your life in service to God. One step at a time.
We have always been able to talk as fellow Christians, as fellow survivors, and as mates... but there are times that as all three, a man feels helpless. -This is one of those times. I hurt because you hurt, and the hurt is worst because there is absolutely nothing I can do for you except pray. -So I am very thankful that I serve a God who is there for you... who does understand your pain, and can give you comfort.
I love you, little sister... and I am very proud of you for sharing this with us. Satan loves for us to keep our pain in the darkness (hidden) because he knows that with the courage to admit to our pain... our issues... our shame, the healing can begin. You did nothing wrong, and it is only Satan who tries to make you feel shame. I love you... we all love you, and will always love you no matter what. -But by taking this painful step you not only have taken another step toward healing, but you may have also showed some other woman that she is not alone in her pain... that someone else has also been there.
I think you are an amazing young lady...
Your CB big brother,
Shani, my friend, you are truly a gift from God. I praise God that he has allowed you to bless my life. I praise him for the way in which he has set people on your path to bring about healing in your heart, body, mind and spirit. Over the time we have both been here it has been my privilege to watch you and learn about truth and honesty. I am truly blessed. kb
In sharing this you have gained a great victory over Satan -I'm not sure if you realize how great a victory it is -but I know you will see the results of it. Praise God the enemy has lost this hold on you!!
Yes. may the Lord continue and complete the healing process. Surely He who creates you knows your frames and He will re-create where there are damages , even in the areas of emotion. Be brave and continue to be courageous for the Lord our God is with you, Sister Shani

Thank you so much for sharing this very personal and moving story. May God grant you full and complete healing, and may He release you from any and every curse associated with this horrible crime, in the Name of Jesus Christ, our wonderful Saviour, Amen!
There's a Jewish New Year festival (in September/October!) called Rosh Hashanah, the Festival of Trumpets. Each Jewish festival represents a major event in history, and Rosh Hashanah represents the Rapture, when we will be taken out of this place of pain and suffering. That day is not far away! I know of a guy who is seventy years old, Richard Sigmund - he was told that he would still be alive on the Earth when that great day arrives! So if he's seventy now, you will only have to wait a few years at most, and the old New Year's Day will be done away with, replaced with a much better one! And your current, temporary, earthly body will be swapped out for the bright, shiny, permanent, heavenly one. You'll look your best, and you'll feel terrific, for all eternity! "Behold, I make all things new!"
Thank you for being so brave. The people who have been through a type of trial that you have been through,Satan goal was to destroy your soul and make you hide in the darkness. The Spirit of God has given you the strength to bring the trial to the light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. Satan, His goal has been destroyed and turned on His head. Just like the enemy was so happy when Jesus was crucified on the cross, what a shock on the third day when He arose from the grave shinning with glorious light, in His new body Satan new nothing about. So are you! a wonder, and a miracle of God! You are coming forth shining as refined gold because you are learning day by day how to rest in the Fathers loving arms and no one can take you out of the Fathers hand,not even death. As you walk through this life there will be more trials but as we keep our focus on Jesus our pain will slowly fade and we will become like Him and the Gates of Hell can never overcome us. We will be all together with Him as his bride. You will be with us through all eternity with Him and I look forward to getting to know you... ... Dawn of Day
Ahhh I knew there was a reason I wrote this blog.. For days like today where I need strength to put my next foot in front of the other.
