Recovering From Rape the Right Way
How to Recover From Rape Peaceably

So, you believe that the person who raped you took your purity?

You feel dirty.

You feel the dirt on your soul as if it's on your body?

Remember ...

What this person took from you was only of the flesh and the flesh goes back to the dust from whenst it came and it is your soul that continues on once we go from this realm to the next.

Our body returns to dust:

Genesis 3:19

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Our spirit returns to God:

Ecclesiastes 12:7

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

When the righteous die, their soul goes to:

Abraham's Bosom

Luke 16:22

And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the Angels into Abraham's Bosom.

How To Recover From Rape Tidbit of Truth ... They did not touch your soul.

Your inner most being.

They do not hold the key to your Spiritual prison cell.

You Do !!!

You allowed yourself to be encaged in fear cuz of what they did and you alone can choose to be free and unlock and step out of that Spiritual prison.

Let me assure you, Jesus can make you pure again.

The dirt can be washed away through His power and His blood which was shed on the Cross.

He can make you whole again. He can replace what was taken away.

That's why Jesus is here.

That's what He did on the Cross, for you.

By Your Side
by Tenth Avenue North

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I'll never let you go

You see child, when God took away your sin He removed it as far as the east is from the west.

Psalms 103:12

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.

You Are forgiven. Washed clean. Made pure again.

So the only remaining flaw in the soul ... Is to forgive the predator and ourselves.

Recovering From Rape With God
How To Recover From Rape With Hope

When a tragic event such as rape occurs ...

The confused soul tends to want to put the blame on someone for their pain.

We can place the blame on ourselves or pass it off on others.

Sometimes it is both.

But, we must choose to forgive all as our Lord asked of us and that includes ourselves.

The truth is ...

When you forgive those who have caused you pain, it goes against what your enemy, the devil, wants. It is the will of the enemy to hold you captive in the realm of unforgiveness.

Even unforgiveness of yourself.

Christ died so that you can be forgiven and so the rest of the world can be forgiven too.

Don't let His death be in vain. Resist the words that the devil whispers.

James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Put on the armor of God !!!

I want to show you something about the one who offended you that you may not know yet.

Recovering From Rape Warning
How to Recover From Rape Deception

It's found here in this verse.

Ephesians 6:11-18

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all Saints;

You see how your offender was only a pawn in this spiritual battle.

This person was overcome by the enemy and made horrible choices which affected you.

But, it is God's job to judge. Not ours. Vengeance is His.

Romans 12:19

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Let Go ... And Let God!

Recovering From Rape Path
How To Recover From Rape Advice

Let go of your anger and lack of forgiveness and Let God deal with them as He pleases.

This battle is not between you and him, but rather between God and the devil.

The only way to forgive when someone has harmed you is through Christ.

Laying down your own understanding and following His way.

Mark 8:34

And when He had called the people unto him with His disciples also, He Said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

It is God's will for us to pray for those who harm us, our enemies.

Mathew 5:43-48

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.

What is there to gain by holding in anger and lack of forgiveness?

Not one thing.

How to Recover From Rape Trap

Now this does not suggest that you should trust the one(s) who raped you.

The point is to forgive you and them.

And carry on with your life and do not put yourself in the same or similar situations.

On the other hand if you choose to forgive the one who harmed you, this would have you doing the will of God ...

And free you!

Check this out ...

2 Corinthians 2:10

To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;

Pray that God will forgive the one who harmed you. That He will bring you to the place where you can forgive him also.

Let's take a little stroll together.

Down the shore line.

Don't you just love the feel of the squishy cold sand under your feet. So soothing to the body and soul. The waves are larger today with white tops. Must be a storm coming in.

Speaking of storms, let's talk for a moment about the storms in your mind when the triggers go off.

You know them to well don't ya?

They come out of no where, hitting you like a ton of bricks.

A dozen flashes of the past, within just a few seconds passing through your mind.

Stopping your every movement.

Even your breathing changes.

As if it's happening right then and there all over again.

Your spirit cries, "Make it stop! Make it stop!" but the pictures continue, tormenting you all over again.

You want to run. You want to hide.

Adrenaline is pumping through your veins as you seek where do you go to stay safe.

Even though, you are safe. There really is nothing there to harm you.

Only the visions going through your mind, that leave you exhausted. Yet at those moments, when the visions are flashing, no one could convince you that you are safe and that nothing is going to happen. You won't give over control. After all that's that was taken. Was control over your very own body. Feels like there is nothing more that could be taken.

I have some good news for you.

They didn't take it all. Remember I shared about how your soul was not touched. The inner most place that God claims as so very valuable that He died on the Cross so He could be joined together with that part of you, in Heaven one day.

Yeah. That's the part he didn't take. The soul is still there. Unharmed. Untouched.

Just encaged.

Know what triggers you!

Recovering From Rape With Faith
How To Recover From Rape Daily

Could be a gun, because he had a gun. Could be a gravel road, because that's where he took you. Could be a room in your own home or a home you visit.

Could be many things ... A scene in a movie, a song, a certain drink, a certain cigarette smoke, a style of car, or a type of furniture ... The list goes on.

We must gain control of our reactions to these triggers.

Now ... I'm not saying that we can ever completely avoid these things.

They seem to pop up unexpectedly, leaving you trembling and trying to grasp at normalcy so others don't notice your struggle that is going on within.

I'm saying to know what will cause you to trigger and react.

They can only control you IF you let them.

You DO have the choice to fight and not choose flight.

It isn't easy to stop letting them from negatively affecting your spirit if you've been allowing them to for a while.

What is the ole cliché?

Old habits are hard to break.

Yet it is possible to take control of what is going on inside of your own mind.

It takes work. It's a learned process of Faith in Him and renewing the mind to experience the Christian healing from rape.

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Philippians 3:13-16

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

2 Corinthians 10:5

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

You have to be willing to work at this.

You have to be determined.

Let's stop for a moment and watch these kids making a sand castle.

See the little boy getting a bucket of water. He's going to fill up the bucket for the moat they've made. He's filled the bucket to full. It's to heavy. He struggles to lift it. He tried to drag it. He makes it two steps before a wave pushes him back again. He's frustrated and wants to give up. Two more steps and a wave knocks him off balance. He falls backwards back into the water, loosing the bucket. He searches for his bucket and tries again. He looks like he has given up and calls for help.

But, the others are too busy adding their finishing touches to their castle, to hear him. He wants someone to carry the bucket for him.

Is he going to give up or keep trying?

He struggles again to lift it. The bucket slips out of his small hands. He is just to weak to pick it up. He stops and looks at his friends on the shore line. He looks at the bucket. You can see determination growing in him. He tries again. Another wave knocks him down. This time when he gets up he seems so determined he's almost angry. He grabs the bucket of water and drags it, step by step, bracing against the waves. Fighting the entire way. He won't give up. He's made it to the shore line, where all his friends come running over to help him.

He made it.

They dump the bucket into the moat and watch with glee as the water flows around the mote surrounding their castle.

Their cheers bring a smile to our faces.

Many attempts repeated will complete any task before us.

We can move mountains through faith in Him thru us !!!

That determination is what you need.

You are not going to get over this by hiding within your castle.

You have to choose to fight for what you want.

A mind at peace. It is worth the hard work.

In the end, you'll be glad you did.

Walk with me away from the shore.

Where the sand dunes are. Standing at the top of the dune we can see the shore line for miles. What a beautiful view from up here. There's a gentle breeze, so cooling and refreshing. As if it's bringing in a change.

Lets walk to the next dune.

I know it's a difficult climb. The sand is so soft we sink in making it even more difficult. The tall stiff sand grass has sharp edges and scratches our legs. With lots of effort we've made it to the next dune. It feels like we are in a desert. So silent and still. Completely alone. The first dune has hidden the lake out of sight. The people, and all their beach gear. The seagulls don't fly here. There is nothing here for them. They circle the beach where they can snatch someone's snack or a fish that has come to close to the surface. The dunes go on and on, one after another.

As if there is no end.

Life is a little like these dunes. Up and down. The up hill climbs are difficult seeming like you might not make it at times. Small things in life seem to scratch at you like the tall stiff sand grass. Then things get a bit easier as you head down hill, and then another trial to climb. Sometimes you can feel all alone out there as you are going through life.

Christian Healing From Rape Promise

Let me assure you dear one, you were not alone during any of these difficult times life brought your way.

The past has warped and used these emotions to control you.

You have been letting them.

It's time to stop and say ... No more !!!

It is time to take back control of you from the enemy of your soul and hand it over to the Lord.

The way you feel.

What you seek.

Freedom and joy.

Perhaps even love.

God is love.

Have you found Him. Have you felt him? He lives just beneath the surface.

Calling you from within.

Longing for you to stop and take time out of your busy day to seek Him. To reach for Him. He is there. Waiting. For you to call His name. For you to come seeking Him.

He has been there all along. Feeling what you feel. Sensing what you sense. Harboring what is within these chambers of your soul. He knows you. He has been with you from the beginning.

What ever you/they told you was wrong.

The names you/they called you were lies.

The world is famous for treating others in ways they do not deserve.

Just as they did Jesus.

Sweetly Broken
by Jeremy Riddle

To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing

For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just


At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified

You've called me out of death
You've called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I'm reconciled


In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness

Yes He was broken, bruised and crushed.

Why would He do such a thing for you?

The answer is to show you how very much He loves you.

Yes ... You!

You are His creation.

You are ... His child.
