Have you ever pondered just how many truly broken people there are in this world? You know, I spent many years dwelling on my own issues, my own fears, my own traumas, thinking "how could it be any worse?" Well, guess what, there is so much out there that is so much worse than our own condition.

Don't get me wrong, we are all sinners, we all start out in the fallen condition, but what is so sad is what that fallen condition can do to others. The Lord is opening my eyes to some horrible truths in this world. You know, when you turn on the news and you hear about the latest child being abused, tortured or murdered, you say a little prayer and you move on with your day. But, for those who do survive such horrific actions against their body, soul, and spirit, life is never the same.

Now, we live in a society that says "Live and let Live", "if it feels good, do it". Well, let me tell you, giving license like that to an already perverse world is insane. We've taken out the Bible, we've made morality relative and more and more people are being hurt by it. Looking back through the ages, perversions and abuse have always happened, but they weren't necessarily sanctioned by their society, now those perversions are sanctioned. Of course, many would argue that it will stop with homosexuality, but given the pedophilia out there, I'm sure they will be exherting their rights next.

Please pray for those that can't help themselves. Pray for those that are being abused in secret, carrying their shame and pain all alone. Pray for the adult survivors of horrific abuse and neglect, that they would find wholeness in Jesus Christ!
