Anonymous asked: I was raped, and I'm not sure what is to come next- did God want that to happen to me? What does a Godly relationship even look like?
Hello, I was rape twice in my life & many other bad experiences w/ men in that area, when i didn’t know Jesus & even being a christian it happen to me. Sadly we are in a falling world & this things happens to good people too. HOWEVER this is NOT something God wanted to happen to you, John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Thats prove that God never does harm to us. Sometimes we open doors to the enemy and thats how he gets a foothold in our lives & negative things happen to us. However NEVER feel guilty of what happen in any way you did not deserve it. In order for you to have a great relationship with anyone you most know Its never your fault & let go of any guilt. Know that God wants ONLY good things to happen to you but because of the sin in this world we are going to go through things. If you allow God to heal you completely you will have a normal relationship w/ the opposite sex, friends & family. Don’t allow fear to enter into you because of what happen for it will destroy any relationship you may have. BUT God set you free so you are free indeed if you surrender to Him what the enemy did to you. And then God will turn it around and use you to help others thats been through that (romans 8:28), like it happen to me & now Im here telling you. It will be ok but only if you seek Jesus for continuous healing & help.
If you continue to follow Jesus I promise you your future is full of hope & things you could never dream of. A godly relationship its define in the bible in 1 Corinthians 13:4 ….Sadly there are wolves in sheep clothing the bible even said so, so if you pray & read His word He will show you what a Godly relationship should be Start by reading it 1 Cor. and the more you learn His word when someone comes to hurt you, you will know right away & the Holy Spirit over all will guide you to all truth…….I am living prove of a survivor of rape more than once & because I hang on to God knowing He loved me even when no one did, is the reason I have a fulfill life w/ a great husband of 18 years & 4 children & in an amazing church, with a calling a neber thought God could ever use me…He can do it and He will do it for you too. There’s still hope for you! …(if you need more to talk let me know, im a talker obviously lol)
