Hello Pastor Chris,
How are you?
Before I ask my question I want to say I love Jesus with all my heart and nothing will ever change it.
It is hard for me to ask this, but here goes nothing!
My question is did God leave me or was he there with me when I was Molested for 3yrs? I’m not angry with him anymore. Which should have never been, but I want to know was he there?
I’m in the process of trying to get over this bad thing that was done to me when I was younger so that I can move forward with my life! Yesterday evening was like I finally felt at peace which I haven’t had in a very long time! I can say I have come a long way from where I once was by his grace and mercy!!! 🙂
If you don’t want to answer or do not know how I will understand!!!!
Thanks so much for your time!
My heart goes out to you! I hurt for you and at the same time I am sooo proud of you! You are allowing your suffering to take you to Jesus which is the very best thing to do. He understands pain better than anyone and He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin so that we can live with Him forever in a perfect place.
To directly answer your question, God did not leave you when you went through that unspeakably terrible time. He was right there with you and He suffered, too. The Bible says this about God, “If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there” (Psalm 139:8, NIV).
