A Damaged Flower Still Blooms

Many women suffer from being abused from such a young age. They are abused mentally, physically, and sexually before they even had the chance to grow into the woman that God has called them to be. When your innocence is shattered at such a young age, it has the potential to damage you for the rest of your life. You can become bitter, hurt, ashamed, guilty, angry, distrustful, guarded, etc. All of these emotions are of the devil. They hinder you from experiencing what the love of Christ feels like which is, 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

 Think about a flower! When in spring, it is in the beginning stages of life and is very vulnerable. It needs time to develop, mature, and grow into something beautiful. It it delicate and soft and the process can't be rushed or it will damage the flower before it had a chance to grow into its full potential. Now let's imagine that that flower bud represents your young spirit. When you were born and took your very first breath, the angels in heaven rejoiced because they knew your potential and knew the plans that God had for you. At that same moment, the demons in hell shuddered because they also knew the plans that God had for you. So even in your early beginning the devil knew what was just released into the world and had his demons from hell on assignment to you.

When you were molested and/or abused, it was designed to stop you from becoming the woman of God that you were called to be. BUT GOD!! See you are an over-comer and you can and will continue on your path that God has assigned you. The devil is a liar!! He is scared to death of you, that's why he sent attacks on you from the very beginning to stop you. But he can't stop what God has already put in motion. The devil doesn't attack what's already his or what is not a threat!!

If you have been molested/abused: pray that God will restore you, ask for the strength to forgive those that have hurt you, and rejoice because you are now a new creature in Christ! What the devil meant for harm, God is using for your good! Now you have become the kind of woman that when you open your eyes each morning, all the devils in hell will mourn and say "She's up!!!"
