If wasnt for my faith in God and the Lord Jesus Chrish i dnt know where i would be to-day.

He has brought me throught the the storms of life.
He has been beside me all the way,
He picked me up and surrounded me with his love and care in the dark days of my life.

My faith has not weakened.
My faith has not gone.
My faith has grown stronger day by day in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

May God bless you all in the name of Christ in your time of need and may you come to know the wonders of his Love.

James

Amen. My faith in God is what has given me the strength to heal and work on recovery.

But having faith that God will really be there is a little scary for me. Letting go and letting Him help carry me is very hard. I like what you wrote. it is simple and pure. It's taking that leap of faith that is difficult, almost impossible. Thank you for your words.

I jokingly discussed with my brother once that if it weren't for my faith, I would be lying face down in a ditch under a partially lit neon motel sign in some crummy part of town. I kept it in a joking tone with him, while in my heart I was seriously thankful to God.

I'm learning everyday we all find our own way to try and heal. For my part I do feel God directing me and caring for me but completely respect anyone else's personal view. Thanks for the support and be well.

A note to all who wonder where He was then and even now....don't you see Him in every word spoken here through the men who have gone through all the pain you endured? If the Bible says anything at all...it says: Surely, He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. One way that we can FEEL and SEE and HEAR is through each other's pain. I know it may sound trite, but being a survivor and married to one, I know He carries us through the kindness and 'touch' of others. I know He was 'there' because He brought us through to this side. The journey is not over. It is on going until we see His Face. Then the healing will be complete. Please reach up, hang on (for dear life). It is there. HE is there.

You ask... where was God, then?

***possible triggers****

Well, he sure as heck didn't take a vacation. I believe he was right there, inside my heart, feeling what I felt and hearing the screams that could never escape my throat. He shed many tears for me. He kept watch while I passed out from the pain. Although I smelled horrible and my body was broken and dirty, the blood and water that gushed forth from His Sacred Heart made my heart clean. Yes, he allowed the assault to happen. Free will is a dreadful thing sometimes but it is what allows us to truly love someone. If we're going to have a world where people are able to choose between good and evil, then yes, there will be people who do horrifyingly evil things. And yeah, I can believe in a God who allows this because I also have the free will to choose good over evil, to love others, to give of myself freely. If God didn't indirectly allow my perp to disobey His teachings, then I wouldn't have the freedom to love with abandon. He takes the evil in this world and he allows good things to come out of it, like flowers growing out of cracks in the sidewalk. His heart breaks for me, and for all of you who are in pain because someone in your life did something very, very bad.

At least that's what I tell myself now. In the moment of my torture, I didn't feel His presence, I only felt a pain that split my body in two. As I lay being assaulted, I clearly heard my tormenter speaking his sadistic words, I did not hear God's reassuring voice.

I don't have it all figured out and what I believe intellectually isn't always what I feel.

Just had another breakthrough. Been really not able to see The Maker through all the guilty feelings that were coming up. I couldn't really do 'it' but He faithfully held me even when I was self harming. He let me see the truth which is always easier to take with Him, rather than the way we saw it to survive. He used someone here who was/is also going through a tough time. Im sore and raw, but the lid of this next healing is off and instead of wanting to hurt myself I just filled with Thanks to My Maker and His son. I love Him because He loves me when Im at my least trusting.

He is faithful.

He is Good

and I thank Him for this place I've found, for the friendly people here who often understand.

This is my favorite prayer. It covers it all. I say it at least several times a day and it helps me:

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Thought for to-day

Think now in a few moments of silence of all the people in the world who are less fortunate than our selves to day.

Those facing famine and disaser in the world ,
The Homeless and those overwhelmed by diseases.

Count now your blessing name them one by one give thanks to the Lord, and pray now for those less fortunated than our selves, and be thankful for your blessings in your life to day.

Praise the Lord James

My thought for To day

Life is to short to keep living in the past, the only person your hurting is your self. Put your trust in God now for a new way of life and you will be suprised of the changes in your live.

God loves each and everyone of us

Have a good day in the faith of Christ

May God bless you all in your life to day James

Thought for To day

The best gifts in life are the simplest of things and they dnt cost a dollar or a pound, as you read this now pause for thought, start counting your gifts to day, and you will be suprised of the wonders Gods love brings. What more do you need in your life for this new day and for every day of life.

Just thank God for the blessing of your life and how much are you charged from God ?.

Have a good day and enjoy from the blessing of God , its called Life.

God Bless you all to day and every day
James

Thought for to day and this weekend

The forces of darkness want to keep each and every one of us in the darkness of life full of sorrow , anger and pain.

Who wants to live there every day ? certainly not me ask yourself do you?.

The only one that can help you and i is your self, by putting your trust and faith in God and start walking and living your life in the light of God to day.


Which path have you chosen in you life to day?.

Darkness sorrow anger and pain or is it Love, joy and peace?


The Choice is yours its your your life.

Have a good day and weekend walking in the light of God because theres no other way.

God bless you all this day and for every more in the Love of God and Jesus Christ James

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next. Amen.

James, it is easy for any of us to let our pain bring us down and loose focus on our blessings (family, freinds, faith, recovery, etc.). You are loved and I hope that eases your pain soon. My thought today:

Lord Jesus Christ, We praise You: Bring peace into the world By bringing Your peace into the hearts of all. Help us to turn away from sin And to follow You in love and service.
Glory be yours, and honour, For ever and ever.
Amen.

Thought for to day

Ive been away most of my life from home
away from my loved ones my family , friends, and most of all God,
It time now for me to come home, as ive never been there
if i dnt i will keep livining in the past and away from those that i love,
Its time now to walk that path
and leave all in the past
Be happy for me now as i go on my way.
and live a life of love with those that love me,

Im going home now becaused if i dnt i will never be happy

James leaving here happy and at peace is a blessing. It's also a victory moving from victim to survivor. My thought for you today:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Thought fot to day

When i cannot control things that troubles my soul
Circumstances of life take a staggering toll.
it brings hurt its brings pain and no joy to my life.
Thats when love rescues me and wont let me fall.
love brings hope love brings joy love brings peace.
back to my soul and back to my life.
For love guides me throught the storms in this life.
And some day the rainbow of life will appear
and storms will be no more.

Loving thoughts from James for this day.

Thought for Today

I thought of you so much today
I went to God in prayer,
To ask Him to watch over you
And show you that I care.
My prayer for you was not for rewards
That you could touch or feel,
But true rewards for happiness
That are so very real.
Like love and understanding
In all the things you do,
And guidance when you need it most
To see your troubles through.
I asked Him for good health for you
So your future could be bright,
And faith to accept life's challenges
And the courage to do what's right.
I gave thanks to Him
For granting my prayer
To bring you peace and love.
May you feel the warmth in your life
With God's blessings from above

No one can slove all their problems in one day, it takes patients and time to heal the pain and grief.

James for you today as you deal with CSA family pain....

Inner Peace Prayer
Dear God, my heart and mind are open to You. May your gentle peace fill my being. In your Presence, I Am the presence of peace. Inner peace is the essence of my being. My mind is calm, clear, and certain.

I am comforted by your loving embrace, God. I surrender all my worries and concerns to you knowing that your eternal and everlasting spirit upholds and sustains me in all that I do. My inner peace is strengthened by our connection.

As I join my heart and mind with yours, dear God, I feel your peace infusing my entire being, keeping my sense of inner peace strong and secure.

To You, beloved God, I let go of struggle, strife, and challenge in my life. In the comfort of your peaceful presence, I am whole, fulfilled, and at peace.

God, my inner peace is the result of your soothing presence. Your essence calms the storms around me and leads me ever deeper into the place of perfect inner peace where our minds are joined. As I focus my mind on Your peaceful presence, I release all thought and melt in the comfort and safety of Your love.

Thought for to day

Think of the good moments in your Life for a minute or two

Can you feel their special goodness.

Can you touch these moment with the warmth in your heart

your good moments are speaking to you right now.

Can you see them and feel them with in you.

Right now, you have something more precious than anything you can imagine. Right now, you have a life and the opportunity to live it in your own special way from the good moments in life.

its can only happen by having some faith in ones self, and making your dreams come true

Through out the bad moments from your life and concentrate on the good for a better way in life.

James

It's Thanksgiving in USA this week, my favorite holiday really. here a much wiser person's thoughts on that:

Thanksgiving Prayer

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Thought fot to day

This morning im thinking what have i got in life

i have my health and strenght while others are sick with no return to full health

I have my family and friends who love me so dear while others have none to turn to and are lonely

I have a home and food on the table while others are starving and dieing in the world

i have help and support to help me get over thr dark days of my life, while others have nothing and are in need of love and care.

I have a life thats worth living while others dnt see it that way

This moring im thanking God for my life
For all his love and care over the years

Now its my turn to give something back
To help the needy of this world.

Thank God im alive and have the gift of LOVE to help others in need at this time.

Its time now to share my gift with one another to help and support where it is wanted and needed.

To make this world a better place for those in need at this time.

and give a little love and care it costs nothing but brings a smile to someones life who is in need at this time.

James

Thought for to day

My faith has brought me through the storms in life and made me the man i am to day.

This morning i reafirm my faith with my survivors prayer

If wasnt for my faith in God and the Lord Jesus Chrish i dnt know where i would be to-day.

He has brought me throught the the storms of life.
He has been beside me all the way,
He picked me up and surrounded me with his love and care in the dark days of my life.

My faith has not weakened.
My faith has not gone.
My faith has grown stronger day by day in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

May God bless you all in the name of Christ in your time of need and may you come to know the wonders of his Love.

James

It is easier to concentrate on the negative or discount the positive because of one negative thing.

Negative thoughts are no good to anyone they keep people stuck in the past and keep reproduceing more negitive thoughts.

Its only when you look at the good things in life and think positive that you can see a brighter future for yourself.

We have the control of our minds and the way we think and can make choices for ourselves which way we want to live our lives to day.


Ive made my choice and im living a good positive life to day free all the dark days of my life and negitive thinking.

If you look at live as a whole theres a whole lot of good days in life as well as some bad days, and if you hang on to the good days in life and make them to grow more the bad days in life get smaller and smaller till they dnt realy bother you no more because there so much good in your life.

Start adding to your good days to day by doing something good for your self.

The greats gift any one could give or recieve this Christmas is the gift of Love.

A kind word ,thought and deed goes along way to help thoses in need, and its dosnt cost alot.

Just a bit of time can help those that are less fortunate than our selves through out the world at this seasonal time and help bring a little comfort in to their lives.

Having faith starts with one self.

Beliving in your self is the main key to sucess.

You are king of your life and hold the key to your life and sucess.

This thread has gotten very long and my thought for today is it is really worth going back to the start. James, when I was in full freefall I would read this post from you many times a day to calm myself. God bless you and all of of us here:

If wasnt for my faith in God and the Lord Jesus Chrish i dnt know where i would be to-day.

He has brought me throught the the storms of life.
He has been beside me all the way,
He picked me up and surrounded me with his love and care in the dark days of my life.

My faith has not weakened.
My faith has not gone.
My faith has grown stronger day by day in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

May God bless you all in the name of Christ in your time of need and may you come to know the wonders of his Love.

James

Thought for To day

A prayer for day

Give me peace in my heart and joy in my soul
Give me strength to fight what’s torturing my soul
Give me courage to speak what I’m going me through
So that I can share and help others who are like me

Thought for today.....

Help me, I pray
To get through this day.
I don't even ask
To have things my way,
Your Will is okay.

Things done in Your way
Are best suited to stay
In the Master Plan,
Help me to help
In any way that I can

Don't let me be
Part of the problems I see,
But let me rather be
A light unto Thee.
Amen.

My brother, James,

Oh how do i wish that your thought for today would connect with me.

But this wishy/washy/love/hate earthly son of his, had told him to take a hike many years ago. I didn't need him anymore.

I wasn't a precious "gift from God" to my parent(s) my "mom" took care of that. Never have seen a father around. But had a sister 3 years younger.

Made in his image & likeness? No way. (His) religion (Catholic) has no room for gays, nor do most "christian" ones.

I'm sorry for making this post. But i hurt bad there comes the guilt & shame all over again. But at least i am shedding some tears over this, and that is something positive.

Heal well, my brother, James, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and i will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity.' As he is me.

Pete..Irishmoose.

Being a Christian for me
Is to have love in my heart my faith and my everyday living
My Love and faith judges no one
My love and faith has not hatred
My love and faith is kind
My love and faith is to say sorry if i do wrong or offend
My love and faith is to give respect care and understanding to others their views and their needs
My love and faith welcomes all i meet in my daily living
My love and faith keeps on growing
My love and faith had brought me joy where there was sadness in my life
My love and faith has brought me to this new day a far better man
The most precious gift i have received form others in my life is gift of love

Love conquerors all and im glad i have love in my life its made me the man i am to day

A man full of love

Love and respect to all from James

Thought for to day

This morning my first thoughts are

I am a live
Its a new day
Its up to me what I make of this day
Do I want to feel good or do I want to feel bad
So I am going to start this day in a positive mood
Why positive because it makes me feel good
It brings out the good in me
And makes the bad days not look so bad
Positivity makes me want to live and keep on living
Positivity helps me to survive the dark days in my life and build on the good.
Positivity has given me a new lease of life which i thought i never would have.

I thank God this morning for the good things in life
my family my friends my health and my strength
What more do i need in my life

Thank you God for positivity in my life with out it i would be back to the dark days in my life
Thank you God for bringing me safely to a new day and for restoring my life and help make me the man i am to day.
Thank you God for positivity in my life

AMEN


To day is a new the old day is gone its up to me to make this day good and leave the bad days behind.

James

When you think and help others less fortunate than your self in the world to day it helps to ease the pain and distress they are going through and at the same time it helps bring a little comfort in to your own pain and distressing life.

Thought for To Day

Each and every one of us have been thought trials in our lives.

How to get over these hurdles of pain left by actions to us we could not control.

How do we end the misery. the nightmares the flash backs, the anger and the guilt.

This where is where i have to take control of my life to start fighting the battle of the dark days in life, to look to the future thats in my control. To help others like myself get out of this whole and start to live again the way i should after all these years.

Life is not so bad when you start to tackle the problems of life if you do nothing you just keep stuck in the past and thats no way to live.

Look to the future paint a bright picture of your dreams go for them and achieve them and follow your dreams i think thats a better way to live.

When i look at whats going on around me in the world to day my thoughts are on the disaster that hit Japan a few weeks ago where hundreds and thousand are now dead, people are homeless, children are left with out parents, the people live in fear of a nuclear disaster a big aftermath to over come for that country in the days ahead.

Some how it puts things into perspective for me and my life, things did happen to me in the past from csa but im still alive to day, i am healthy i am strong, i have a home, family and friends by my side day by day to help me get through the bad days and times in my life .

When i compare my self and my past life as a victim of csa to the people of Japan who are now suffering to day through no fault of their own i have a lot to be thankful for in my life to day and a future to live for.

The only thing that i can do for the people of Japan is to pray for them and give some financial support to help meet their needs. when im helping others less fortunate than my self its reminds me to be more thankful with what i have in life and that there is a lot more people far worse of in their life to day than me.

Thought for to day

We only have one life to live
Sometimes its good and sometimes its bad
its up to me to make the best of what life brings
The rough with the good but that is life
There is no such thing as a perfect life
All we can do is to strive to do the best we can with life
In order to survive the dark side of life and bring a little bit of happiness into our life.


James

Thought for to day

I am feeling good these days
I guess it down to the way i view my life now
Gone are the day of feeling guilt anger resentment sorrow and living in my past life.
It has been replaced with feelings of Joy happiness laughter forgiveness hope thankfulness thoughtfulness and most of all love
I am living a far better life to day after all i deserve it after the battle i have been through all these years.
Life is for living in present time and making a future for your self if you keep dwelling in your past life you will always live there.

Thought for to day

To day is Good Friday the day Christ was crucified by cruel men.
In a way we are similar to Christ we were crucified by cruel men who gave no thought to us at all.
But the good news is that there is life after death and one day we will reclaim our lives again and start to live the life we were meant to live its looking forward to a new life that will help get us there and leave the old life behind where it belongs buried in the past.

Thought for To day

Its good to be alive on this bright sun shining day
I have my health and strength to enjoy each new day
I have the love and support of my family and my friends who are always by my side.
They help and comfort me when memories of the dark days return from time to time.
But at least for to day i can make the best of the all the good things in my life.
And count my many blessing and be thankful for the good times in my life.

I'm about to lose my faith. At the age of 14, 27 years ago, I joined a church. It was joining the church which helped me end the abuse. But my emotions are still totally screwed up. God hasn't heard my cries for help and my marriage is about to fall apart. So now my wife and kids become victims of my abuse as well. Sometimes I get so angry with God. And yet there's nothing I'd like more to recover my faith. I'm confused.

Having faith is being able to go for you dreams in life.
Taking the necessary steps to get you there and no looking back. Keep looking forward
Tackle the problems that are keeping you in the past
Then aim for a better kind of life and future that you want to live and leave the old one behind.

Thought for To day

Having Faith is to believe in your self
That you will overcome all the obstacles in your life
That you will have the courage and strength to tackle and win the fight
And never give in till you have won
Have faith and believe in yourself
You can move the mountains in your life
And start to have a brand new life
Just by having faith in your self

Thought for to day

Having faith is to think on others,
In their time of need
In their pain and distress
Using and showing your gift of love to comfort aid and support them
Even though you may be hurting inside yourself
But at the same time your helping yourself heal from the comfort of knowing that you are helping others in their time of need

When you look more at the good in your life it helps deal with the darkside side of life and helps you to deal with it in a more positive way and move on with life in general leaving the past behind.

Having Faith

Having faith has brought me trough the storms in life.
Having Faith has been my rock and strength in the dark days of life

Having Faith has given me courage to speak about the wrongs in life and stand up for the good and right in life.

Having faith has changed my life beyond my wildest dream.
To a life of love, joy, hope, happiness and peace.

Having Faith has Brought me closer to the one who loves me the most in life.
He is my rock.
He is my strength.
He is my salvation and saviour of my life.

Having Faith has made me the man I am today.

A man at peace with himself and happy with his life.


Peace perfect peace is now in my life through having a faith in the Lord Jesus Christ

Having faith is to believe in your self
That you can remove the mountains in your life
By simply believing and having faith
In yourself
Faith begins with one self.

This is how James started 2 years ago:

If wasnt for my faith in God and the Lord Jesus Chrish i dnt know where i would be to-day.

He has brought me throught the the storms of life.
He has been beside me all the way,
He picked me up and surrounded me with his love and care in the dark days of my life.

My faith has not weakened.
My faith has not gone.
My faith has grown stronger day by day in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

May God bless you all in the name of Christ in your time of need and may you come to know the wonders of his Love.

James

if it wasn't for my own personal faith in God I would have survived the battles of life.

Through the light of Christ shining in my life his love to receive and to give that Love to one other is the way to true happiness in every day life.

I will greatly exult in Jehovah.

My whole being will rejoice in my God.

For he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;

He has wrapped me with the robe of righteousness,

Just like a bridegroom who wears a turban like that of a priest,

And like a bride who adorns herself with her ornaments.

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts

And as the garden makes what is sown in it sprout,

So will the Sovereign Lord Jehovah

Cause righteousness and praise to sprout before all the nations.

a poem about faith:

Faith

What are we bound for? What’s the yield
Of all this energy and waste?
Why do we spend ourselves and build
With such an empty haste?


Wherefore the bravery we boast?
How can we spend one laughing breath
When at the end all things are lost
In ignorance and death? . . .


The stars have found a blazing course
In a vast curve that cuts through space;
Enough for us to feel that force
Swinging us through the days.


Enough that we have strength to sing
And fight and somehow scorn the grave;
That Life’s too bold and bright a thing
To question or to save.


By Louis Untermeyer



quotes about faith:

"Faith activates God - Fear activates the Enemy."
- Joel Osteen

"It is the spectators, the people who are outside, looking at the tragedy, from whose ranks the skeptics come;
it is not those who are actually in the arena and who know suffering from the inside.
Indeed, the fact is that it is the world's greatest sufferers
who have produced the most shining examples of unconquerable faith
."
- James Stewart

"The opposite of faith is not doubt or even unbelief, but rather, fear.
Whenever we are threatened by forces beyond our control, fear and faith compete for our allegiance.
For this reason, no command is repeated more often in the Bible than the simple command
, 'Fear not.'
We should not be surprised that it is the storms of life that actually prove our faith."
- Rich Vincent

scripture about faith:

"So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while. These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -- and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him, you trust him; and even now you are happy with a glorious, inexpressible joy. Your reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls."
1 PETER 1


"What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. God gave his approval to people in days of old because of their faith. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God's command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.
So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him
."
HEBREWS 11

"What good is it, my brothers and sisters,
if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?
Can such faith save them?
Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.
If one of you says to them,
“Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,”
but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
In the same way, faith by itself,
if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
Show me your faith without deeds,
and I will show you my faith by my deeds.
You believe that there is one God.
Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?
"
JAMES 2

"For we conclude a person is made right with God through faith, not through obeying the law."
ROMANS 3:28

God bless you this morning and the day ahead through the love and care of the Holy Spirit.

God bless James



my thought for today

thank you for these words today, James.
and i pray that god will bless you, too.

thank you so much for all these great words.
i come here often.
the post above really resonates well with me.
it is a practice i endeavour to cultivate, but too often i forget to start the day with an attitude of gratitude.
often i end the night before praying for peace and patience and purpose, pleading in pain and passion and pride.
but when i start with a simple "thank you, god" on the first breath i exhale, the next breathe i inhale is the holy spirit.

that day is ok.
it feels better to appreciate than to hate.

thanks for the reminder.

The rough with the good but that is life
There is no such thing as a perfect life
All we can do is to strive to do the best we can with life
In order to survive the dark side of life and bring a little bit of happiness into our life.


James








so true, james. thank you.

and may i add...

my thought for today:

Strive not, Leuconoë, to know what end
The gods above to me or thee will send;
Nor with astrologers consult at all,
That thou mayst better know what can befall;
Whether thou liv’st more winters, or thy last
Be this, which Tyrrhen waves ’gainst rocks do cast.
Be wise! drink free, and in so short a space
Do not protracted hopes of life embrace,
Whilst we are talking, envious time doth slide:
This day’s thine own; the next may be denied.


Ode 11 from the First Book of the Odes of Horace

seize the moment.
savour the present.
