Introspection — what better way to start a week.
Question: What has God saved you from?
As I reflect back on my life, I remember the three-year-old little girl, crushed in spirit, sitting against the wall in my bedroom crying and shaking uncontrollably after a harsh rape from my father. I was completely alone, destroyed, and not sure how I’d make it through that moment, let alone the next day.
Then, I met Him. Jesus. I wouldn’t learn His name until I was eight. But, I had met my Savior — in the truest sense of the word. It didn’t get to leave my parents’ house nor did the abuse stop, but I knew He existed and that made a tremendous difference.
He planted a seed of hope in my heart that my dismal life could not extinguish or kill completely.
My father taught me about his god — little, puny, greedy, and controlling. I hated his god but this Jesus I’d met was different.
Loving, kind, forgiving — full of grace and hope. He’s never left me, although many times I’ve tried to leave him.
How did God find you?
