God Will Help You Heal from Sexual Abuse

God is not offended by your sexual abuse, nor does He disapprove of you because of what some­one else did to you. He loves you. Your expe­rience of being abused hurts Him too. He longs to show His compassion to you and ease your inner pain. And He is powerful enough to help you.

If you are not spending time daily in prayer and Bible reading, now is a good time to start. James 4:8 invites us, "Come near to God and he will come near to you." One of the ways to get close to God and allow Him to get close to you is through prayer and His Word. For example, start out by reading a psalm from the Bible each day. Then spend a few minutes telling God about what you are thinking and feeling. Ask Him to help you grow stronger through the healing process. He will do it because He loves you and wants to help you.
