Sailing forward from an abusive past

"I saw that God had been showing me love through all those dark and dangerous years."

Throughout my childhood and marriage, I was the target for abuse. Sexual abuse from my father and physical abuse from my husband, both of whom I loved, were confusing and damaging. I felt hurt, angry, insecure, and guilty. This sense of despair engulfed me.

After many years, I left the marriage. Although I was free physically, I was lost mentally. I wanted God in my life, but I didn't feel worthy of Him. However, I read from the Bible often and knew that somewhere, there was an answer.
