When I was a single parent, living far away from family, my ex-husband broke into the house and raped me. I felt so alone, scared, and helpless. I had left him because I didn't feel he loved me. His alcohol and drug abuse, as well as a violent temper, had led to his abusing me verbally and physically. After years of this only getting worse, I felt I had no choice but to leave with our two small children.
My mother was a Christian Scientist, and I was taught always to turn to God for strength, direction, and comfort. The Bible contains many accounts of people who were victims: Daniel was unharmed in the lions' den, and the three Hebrew men who were thrown into the fiery furnace turned to God as the great deliverer and were saved. Not a claw touched Daniel, and not even the smell of fire remained on Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Neither did they show bitterness or resentment, although they might have felt they had every reason for it.
