How does Graces come into play in something so impure such as sexual abuse, rape, incest?
Graces for me has been a realization that even as dirty, broken and impure as I feel after my many experiences, God gifts me with the knowledge and Grace of being pure in heart, mind and body. He brings me to the fullness of his love for me as well as what love I should have for myself. The gift of Grace has over shadowed my dispair, my fears, my sadness and I strive to look for more in life. Yes days are hard, some are extremely dark and I have been plagued with suicidal planning and deep depression. Some how God Continues to shine that light of Graces to draw me out reminding me all that I have overcome has been a part if a bigger love that the Lord and others have form me.
