I first drafted these devotions a year ago (spring 2017) to connect to my memoir — which takes the reader along on my faith journey after experiencing rape at gunpoint.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement (fall 2017), these scriptures have become all the more poignant and powerful to me.
Each devotion is one page and includes a brief passage of scripture, reflection questions, prayer prompts and a color photo that suggests a connection to a current event.
The passages featured are:
~ Psalm 22 “Why Have You Abandoned Me?”
~ Isaiah 43 “Before & After”
~ 2 Samuel 13 “Carrying My Sexual Shame”
~ Luke 18 “She Persisted”
~ Mark 5 “Boldly Seeking Jesus”
You could use these yourself, with a small group, or with your church. I hope they speak to you, and I encourage you to share them.
I’m in the process of updating my site as my theme has been discontinued. Due to these technical difficulties, I can’t attach the PDFs here. If you’d like to receive the devotions, subscribe to my updates or send me a message.
