The Pro~Life Issue No One Wants To talk About
My dear friend Colleen at Thoughts On Grace has posted a very important post and video. For those of you who do not know Colleen, she is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Through her own healing she now strives to help others. This video from the Let Go Let Peace Come In organization is trying to reach survivors still in need of healing through this video.
I didn't post the video here because I really want you to visit Colleen's blog. Click the above link and it will take you directly to Colleen's post with the video. The video is 10 minutes long, but well worth the time.
As Colleen says in her post, this is a pro-life issue.
After you view the video, you can visit Colleen's survivor blog Surviving By Grace to read more about her and her journey from abuse to healing.
I admit this is not an easy topic to think about, but it needs to be, not only to help those who have been traumatized by this heinous act, but also so that future generations can grow up healthy in mind, body and spirit.
Thank you, Colleen for your courage in sharing your own story and for all you do to help others.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
