As the body of Christ, we are called to be the voice of the voiceless and hurting. We are called to stand up for those who are silenced by fear, hurt, shame, and violence. As the hands and feet of Christ, we need to be his loving arms to the hurting. The truth isn't always pretty. It hurts. It's ugly. It's painful. But the truth is what's right. It's what we as believers are called to share and live by. If we want to truly live like Christ, truth is key. 1 Corinthians 13:6 " Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth."
Read and share this presentation to raise awareness on sexual violence as we continue the Real Truth Project to be a voice for those without voices.
It's finally here! Some amazingly brave women have stepped up to write and share their stories of survival, pain, healing, and redemption through Christ. The work Christ is doing through each of these women is incredible. Read and share the project to get the word out! God is going to do amazing things with each and every one of these incredible people.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In honor of that, Waking up to Real is going to be starting a project that I am so excited about. It's called The Real Truth Project. Because of my own story, God has realllly been challenging me with finding a way to share it, and also with figuring out a way to better equip the church with a way to help those who have been hurt by sexual abuse. So then came the Real Truth Project. There are so many people who have been hurt by sexual abuse. I want people to hear the real stories of these people, and others, ultimately, to learn how to help other people through hearing. And who better to learn from than the actual people who have experienced this pain. This project will be real stories, written by the real women. At the end of the month, all of the stories will be shared together here on the blog. There will be a separate page and sub-page for everyone's story. I know that God can use anything to glorify Himself, and I pray that this project can be used to comfort those hurting, empower those who don't have a voice, and educate those who don' t know. Even if it is just a little post on a little blog. Keep it in your prayers and keep checking back in to get updates! And, check back on April 30th to see the Real Truth Project Published. ❤
