"No matter how many good friends I had, there were aspects of my life I needed to deal with alone - heart issues and attitudes that could not be wrestled with in a Bible study...They had to be confronted by the Holy Spirit in the privacy of my own soul." I can really relate to this quote. When I was a teenager, I was sexually abused by my stepfather. When I told my momma, she sent me to stay with my sister, so she could confront him. Of course, he denied it, and she believed him. She would not let me come back home, she made me stay with my sister. This was a very hard time for me, no one believed me. My heart was broken, I missed my momma very much. Knowing that she did not believe me, and that she chose a man over me, it really hurt. But, in my darkest hours, when I was alone with my deep pain, I was being comforted by the greatest comforter, my precious Jesus. He never left my side, He loved me through it all. Family and friends, were no where to be found, but Jesus was carrying me everyday. He loved me, He spoke words of healing to my heart, and He helped me to forgive. Praise Jesus, my momma and I made peace eventually. I am thankful for the alone times with my Saviour, they were very much needed to help me to heal, and rise above my pain. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.
