Blessings In The Midst Of It All

I was reading the scripture in 2 Samuel 13: 1-19, where the story of Tamar was told. She was the daughter of King David, and sister of Absalom and she had a half-brother named, Amon. According to the story, Amon had developed lustful feelings for his half-sister and it eventually led to betrayal and rape.


As I continued to read how Tamar’s story unfolded, I was in such disbelief at how it ended. In 2 Samuel 13:15-19, it states, “Then Amnon hated her with intense hatred. In fact, he hated her more than he had loved her. Amnon said to her, “Get up and get out!” “No!” she said to him. “Sending me away would be a greater wrong than what you have already...

Do you know anyone that’s experienced a traumatic event in his/her life? Or, maybe…you have?

At a young age, I was the victim of childhood sexual abuse.

I buried my secret for years until I was at a period in my life where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I carried around guilt and shame because of it.

Can you think of all the times in your life when you were drowning in pain and disappointment? It may have been that time you were laid off from a job, your spouse had an affair, or you had a miscarriage after waiting years to get pregnant? Maybe you experienced it during your final round of interviews for a job. It seemed perfect, but then you find out they went with another candidate.

I believe it doesn't matter what causes pain and disappointment. The results are the same. You have more questions than answers. There is a feeling of emptiness and confusion, and you are left wondering what your future holds.

I can relate to you. That is exactly how the death of my sister made me feel. I coul...
