It is a question survivors of sexual abuse, who wrestle with God, ask at one point or another.
It is a good question. It is a valid question.
And Jesus can handle our questions.
A survivor friend of mine gave me the following link to a song she likes. She wrote:
Carolyn: The line in this song "Where were You when sin stole my innocence?" stabs me in the heart every time because I think there is still a part of me that asks that question about my abuse. But I love that there is an answer...not just that He was on the cross but that He was there in all of my suffering, in my doubt, and my shame. Love it! So powerful!!!!
Keep asking the question, my friend; Jesus is a gentle healer. And thanks for sharing the answer you’ve found.
