Rape may be the ugliest of the four-letter words. One in five of all women experience sexual assault. That’s almost 20% of the female population. It’s the woman that delivers your mail, your college professor, the cashier at your grocery store or maybe it’s you. But there’s another word that is just as powerful, it’s hope. Here on A Woman’s Soul: Restored, we’ll be talking about hope. We’ll be talking about how that assault does not define you – or dictate your future, that you should not feel shame, and that you have the potential and deserve to find all of the joy that you are due. You’ll learn to reclaim your power, to believe in you, and rise up with confidence and spirit.
When we are going through a current trial or situation, we can get so troubled until our Past resurfaces itself back into our Now; it can be that stronghold that pulls us back to a place of vulnerability.
As we navigate this thing called Life, it is important to remember that our day-to-day living can be difficult enough without resurging past memories or feeling stuck in current abuse. We do not have to muddle everything together either from our past or currently.
