At times what abuse survivors go through feels so far beyond normal every day experiences that the usual advice about trials feels like too little change to pay the bill. Other advice puts too much responsibility on the victim’s shoulders for something she would never knowingly sign up for. It is a special talk, at just the right time, that can address this unique burdensome trial in a way that leads us forward instead of weighing us down with the past. For me today this talk by Quentin L. Cook paid the bill with enough left over that I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
“This life is not always easy, nor was it meant to be; it is a time of testing and proving. At times when we may feel to say, Hope you know, I had a hard time, we can be assured that Jesus Christ is there and we are safe in His loving arms.” -Quentin L. Cook
Hope you know I understand. Have a good week survivors!
