Hope for the Sexually Abused and Those Who Care About Them

This book is intended for adult reading only.

I asked God, "Why didn't you let me die when I was a child? I don't want to grow up! Please let me die now!"

I thought dying was the only way my pain could end. Every night when I went to bed, I wished I would not have to wake up in the morning. I thought everyone would be happy if I died.

I felt trapped, violated, and so helpless. My brain started to go crazy. I didn't know what's right and wrong anymore. My head would hurt so badly I thought it was going to split in two. Sometimes I would inwardly yell to God, "Help me! Help me!" Other times I would just silently suffer, hoping God would see me.

The devil told me, "You know better! You were taught better than this! What is wrong with you!"

It felt like my sin was way too big to be forgiven...

—from Angela's Story

Is there hope after sexual abuse? Are the reality of words like restored, fulfilled, secure, loved, and cherished even worth considering? Does God care about the outcome of my life?

The stories and how-to in Restored shine a ray of hope into the soul of abuse victims. You're not alone. God does care. His hand reaches out to you even now. The pain of the process is worth the joy of restoration. The power of Jesus Christ prevails—even in your darkest hour.
