Y’all? This verse has a powerful meaning. To many of course but to me alone? So profound.
So yall know how that kid sexually assaulted me right?
Well right before that happened, I remember reading this verse in a Brio magazine. Remember that magazine? Christian teen magazine – do they still have that?
Anyways, I was reading a story when the girl talked about how God used this verse in her life. And it stuck with me. 4 days before this kid attacked me I found this verse. And friend, I cannot tell you how I could not shake this verse.
I have OCD and there are certain things that stick in my head. I constantly repeat numbers over and over. I go through the worst obsessive thoughts….but moving on. So when this got stuck in my head (though I was undiagnosed at the time) I just thought it was par for the course.
I told my mom that I couldnt get this verse out of my head. She said: “Maybe God is trying to tell you something”
It screamed in my head.
“Those who look to Him are radiant….”
All i kept thinking about was that verse. When I went home, after the attack, I wasn’t gonna tell my mom. ‘It was nothing,’ I kept thinking to myself. I let slip that I knew what God was trying to tell me through that verse.
Friend I wasnt even gonna tell my mom what happened. Then I did. And then we went to the police. And then the verse started to apply.
yall…..this kid spread it around that i asked for it. that I wanted it. i lost friends. people who i held dear. I was alone.
except for me and my verse.
“….and they were not ashamed….”
God loves you so much He will do whatever He can to reach out to us. What do you have to do? Nothing. just look out for those signs He’s trying to talk to you. Trust in Him to guide you through your dark times.
I cant promise you He will answer the way and when you want but He will be holding you tight.
