Happy Day!

The following report is like a dream come true to me.  If you readers will recall, I reported on a church that was willing to start educating their congregations about sexual aberrations of all sorts and was very willing when this courageous woman who is in the Redemption Stage was ready to start a group (she had been open to receiving guidelines to run the group).  Please note, her own healing and willingness to be instructed was essential.  The first group is now done, and here are the results:

“And now I would like to update you… Praise the LORD in song, for He has done excellent things; let this be known throughout the earth … Isaiah 12:5.

This past Monday evening was the last Christ-centered group meeting for women who were sexually violated and I am praising God as He has done excellent things…He faithfully saw us through 12 weeks during which time the participants experienced more of His love and healing power. In our last meeting they were sharing how much they appreciated the group because it gave them a safe place to share intimately…where they could come and just be themselves and not feel judged….a place where they were heard and understood. Several said they had grown most in trusting God. Another said she put closure on most things and believes she is mostly healed from her childhood sexual abuse and overall neglect from her parents. Some have forgiven and others are in the process.

Each one of the group members has a plan in place for continuing healing and I pray they will be steadfast in carrying them out.

God also provided the right childcare volunteers for the 4 children that came each week. The children were sad that they would not be coming any more. I thank God for the opportunities the childcare volunteers had to teach the children about God.

I am praising God also for the faithful prayer partners He provided for this ministry because I know this was a spiritual anchor of the group.

I am seeking His timing for starting the next group.

God did indeed provide a strong finish…wish you could have been a witness. J …I am full of humble gratitude and deep appreciation to Him for connecting me with you…because of how He used you to help me is the reason I am being used by Him today in this way.

I appreciate you and value your help and support very much. May God richly bless you with His grace and mercies each day.

Love in the Name of Jesus,

Cory”

The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; my father’s God, and I will extol Him … Exodus 15:2.
