Some years ago i was Raped, thankfully i’ve came along way since then Amen to God for that. i still struggle with one big problem in my life and that’s TRUST!!! doesn’t matter who or what it is and that includes God…..
i just want to trust more very much espceially in God and be able live my life without this being an issue for me.
i believe this is holding me back in many ways.
longing to trust
Dear Longing to Trust:
Trust can be such a hard road for someone who has been so badly hurt. I’m so sorry you were raped. My first piece of advice is always to pray about it and go to God with this situation, as many times as you need to. You’re not required to trust everyone, nor should you. I recommend Beth Moore’s, Believing God study – you can enroll online and do the study from home. I think that core relationship with the Lord and learning to trust Him is where you need to start first. Memorize Proverbs 3:5 and Jeremiah 29:11 to start. Once your foundation with God is solid, other relationships tend to fall into place.
Why are Christians such jerks?
Angry at Christians
Dear Angry at Christians:
I’m sorry you are feeling angry with Christians. I can understand your sentiment though I think most humans can fall into the jerk category at some time or another. Christians aren’t immune from making mistakes. If you’re hanging around with some folks who aren’t very nice, try finding other Christians to befriend that might be nicer. If these Christians are some that you have been close with perhaps you could tell them how you feel and how they are coming across to you.
