I have a friend who has had a very rough life that involves repeated sexual abuse and was raised by a single mother who also had sexual abuse. When my friend was 14, one of her teachers took guardianship over her. The sexual abuse continued in that new home, too. The last time was about 15 months ago and she has never been the same person. She started growing further away from me, other Godly people, and even our church. Last April, she got involved with a guy and they are supposed to be married this August. Ever since getting involved with him, her spiritual state has really taken a downward spiral. However, she doesn't think that she's different because she feels so happy now. Well, the Godly people in her life are VERY concerned about her and recognize that she hardly acts like the person that she used to be. She has hurt a lot of people and even knows it, but doesn't seem bothered enough about it to make things right with anyone, including me. She has kept somewhat of a distance from her biological mother through the years, but has always maintained some type of a relationship with her. I think that my friend still suffers from neglect and abandonment issues. Well, just last night, she texted her biological mother and stated that she is not going to text or talk to her again. I still cannot believe that she has gotten to this very low point.
Please pray that she is delivered from her traumatic past and that all ungodly influences are removed from her life.
