Personally I have found my Faith to be a huge part of my recovery. Having been abused by clergy I still have a great sense that the help I am getting now, and the progress I feel I am making is deeply tied to a very caring God. I know we are all different but I could not be doing it without that additional deep sense of hope. Be well....
man that is so great you did not loose your faith in the midst of their behavior that must have been hard . but i am glad you did not turn your back on God so many have over smaller issues.
i think it is a great testimony to share it is very powerful !!
it can be funny sometimes i have seen others have a bad experience with church or other not so seasoned Christians and walk away completely and than turn around and go running to others that have repeatedly hurt them.
others have had bad sexual experiences with others "non abusive" and kept or keep going back but when it came to church or God or anything that had to do with Christians they let that one bad thing destroy their hope.
do not no why i went that direction but thanks for the comment it really gives me hope to see some one go through something like that and still have their faith WOW is all i can say .
God Bless you
