I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.
A Jewel: Discouragement – what a strong emotion. Dispiritedness. Downheartedness. This was a guiding force in my life for years and years. I had a belief – and I still struggle with it, that the abusers are by far the more powerful in the incest equation. That could not be farther from the truth, but I have struggled.
Abusers tell their stories with a religious bend to piety and people believe them. Victims tell their treacherous stories of abuse (or don’t!) and we are shunned.
Who is showing more power?
It appears that the abusers win BUT they do not. I’ve watched it. Time and time again I see these once powerful people, now cowardly and afraid. Do you know what they fear? They fear words of truth!
Do you know where I find my strength? In the very truth that they cower from!
A Gem: I cannot lose the gift that God has given me. I don’t have to be perfect. I don’t have to be small. I just have to receive it.
Metaphorical Gunpowder: I am loveable. Nothing will move me from that belief again.
Please comment below by leaving your jewel, a gem or something you keep yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.
