In this blog I'm featuring one of my gifted students and interns, Joy Pedrow. God has taken a tragedy in her life and enabled her to redeem it to minister to other women. Please pass this resource on to women that you know might benefit. Thanks, Sue
As a victim of rape, I thought the rape was my fault. I did not fully understand that I was experiencing the result of sin until years later. No matter the reason for the rape, it still wounded me deeply. Because of my hurt and pain, I often wondered why God would allow His children to suffer.
During the months following my abuse, God felt closer than ever before. He never moved. When I cried out in agony, He was by my side. When I prayed with tears streaming down my cheeks, He was there. When I begged Him to take away the pain, He held my hand.
He was there.
