My name is Christine, my friend Marti sent me information that you have put together on SRA. I am a survivor of SRA as well how can I help you? I feel there needs to be a safe place for others to come forward and talk. Many things you put out there are pretty hard to swallow for many and it stirs up triggers. My desire is to help others begin to heal. We all have our stories at various intensities and abuse. And need each other to process in a healthy way. If others contact you looking for someone to talk to thats been there please feel free to give them my email.
In the midst of these evils that do exist in the hearts of men and especially within our own culture of the church, the Lord will have His day of reckoning and justice for He rules supreme and His love heals and He is our strength. One of my memories was that I saw my Lord and Savior holding me during one of the horrific acts being done to me at such a young age (3Yrs) When I first saw that, I was angry with the Lord and asked WHY??? Why didn't you stop this. He looked at me with such love and with tears in His eyes he replied " Because of agency that is given to men, but I never left you alone."
This is what I have to hold on to when memories and triggers flare and I have the beautiful exp. of learning to forgive and to love my enemies, that the Lord has been there to hold me and will hold till the day I can embrace Him and wash his feet with my tears and thank him for my life's lessons as painful as they have been. For without them I would not know my Lord like I do nor understand His atonement for me and for all men. I treasure my relationship with my Lord. Without Him I am nothing. I can be at peace in the midst of darkness that is all around. If I can be of service to you dear brother please let me do so.
Thank you for what you are trying to get out there. Love and blessing Christine.
