I don't know how many of you have noticed that the things in this world you keep searching for never seem to satisfy. Many of you seem lost and just keep looking for something- anything to fill that void in your life... Lust, other people, money, alcohol, drugs, distractions... But do any of you know how to find that thing you're searching for?
Surely you've noticed these things don't satisfy. That's because you're searching for something this world can't offer. Believe it or not, the one thing you're looking for is closer than you may think.
God is right by your side, continuously pursuing you, and calling your name! Yes, you. He knows you, and He wants you to know Him. He is the only thing that can truly satisfy you in this life. He is everywhere; you just need to look around you. Look beyond the bad and evil things of this world, and you might just see the beauty of God's own creation. If only all of you knew how much you are dearly loved. All the mirrors in this world still can't capture the true beauty God has created in you. I could say more, but I am leaving it up to you. I'm not forcing anything on you. I'm just giving you some inspiration to think about.

My Story, Testimony and Such

This has gotta be one of the hardest things I have ever had to do... I've told others before but never like this and I got the sweaty palms and belly flip-flops to show it... lol. Well nowhere else to start but at the beginning.
My name is Shona pronounced (Show-na), I grew up in a family that was far from perfect but, for the most part was a Christian family. We believed in God and my parents and older sisters did too. I knew God existed I never doubted that it just made more sense. Anyways, my family loved me very much but I was the last out of three the oldest in high school with her own issues and the second oldest closer in age but still didn't play much with me. so I was usually by myself. I'm artistic so it didn't bother me I would find stuff to do so I wasn't usually bored. Eventually I did make friends neighboring friends and one of these kids first molested me. I didn't understand what it was at first heck I didn't know about sex, but from that point it lead to the second encounter when I was visiting with my grandparents and another person a girl this time molested me again. I was still pretty young so I didn't know what it was but from these encounters it lead to masturbation (I had no idea what it was at that time either). I wouldn't say I was addicted but my world became tainted with sex, the things I saw began to have a different approach things I didn't care about like romantic notions and stuff (I'm a tomboy so girly stuff didn't appeal to me) I didn't take any of these into account, anyways. Towards my high school years, my family moved and adopted a young man to live with us as a big brother. however, this man took advantage of my parent's kindness, and very slowly, started to manipulate and isolate me, especially when I started high school. He started to create a huge fuss if I was interested in the opposite sex or experiment with makeup and so on. He would invade my privacy and read my diaries and even try VERY hard to unlock them and read them, learn my passwords for many stuff. but anyways, you get the picture. He started molesting me when I was 12 years old, I don't want to get graphic but he would climb on top and 'bump and grind' with no penetration try to kiss me and stuff, and this went on for SIX YEARS, It did get to a point when he did try to have sex with me and as I would call it borderline rape. Eventually I sort of, buried it, buried it all, and it was in the summer of the first year of high school after my 13th birthday I got into Art and anime and stuff, and I used that to not address the pain, the images and stuff. I got no joy from school either because I was also bullied and I didn't have much friends just associates and I rather liked that. Eventually, I immigrated to the US when I was 17 and it came out what happened between me and him and as I feared it would, it broke my families heart. Since then we ex-communicated him and I have had no contact with him since 2011. It was when I got away from him and I went to church for the first time in a really long time, I went up to the altar and I prayed that Jesus would save me. And I can be the first to say, Its has NOT been easy, I have had to struggle through memories, nightmares, anger, depression, pain, sorrow so much sorrow and many many tears. and my journey is not quite done. However, I can testify that my Father in Heaven is really faithful and has not left me alone to deal with this mess. He has given me days of joy and peace hope for a better future for a family and children and a husband, something I didn't think I wanted or deserved. I mean I felt dirty, used, unlovable, and undesirable etc, but God is faithful and He loves me, and I'm here to tell you there's hope for you, and you don't have to believe what those men and women said or did to make you feel less than, because God sees you as a treasure and he never stopped seeing you as such. God Bless you ALL! I hope and pray for your healing too.
with Love S.R
