Good evening, last week we learned about verbal abuse and how it damages lives. As I shared we will speak about a form of domestic leading weekly leading up to October. This week we will talk about SEXUAL ABUSE.
Yes we will talk about rape and molestation. Let me give you 2 reasons why 44% of victims are under age 18 and 80% are under age 30. Sound like two good reasons to me.
Tonight, as we start this topic it’s going to be hard for some, but allow God to be your anchor as this will start healing for some. That’s my prayer and God is faithful.
If you’re anything like I WAS I wondered if God is loving why does such acts take place? Please read this verse;
He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls. [Prov. 16:32.] (Proverbs 25:28 AMP)
The lack is self control people display is the reason this act takes place. Please understand nothing is new under the sun. Let me leave two names with you, Dinah and Tamar. These two ladies were both sexually abuse and its recorded in the Bible. We will explore them as we go on this journey.
