I always try to say I’m a survivor, and I am. But sometimes the system continues to victimize me, and I feel like I have no rights. The less I say, the safer I’ll be. Kids are in treatment, but the system denies that anything ever happened. The system is an illusion of protection. I have found a new church; after praying that God will lead us to the right one. The church we went to for six months was one of those mega churches; I talked to maybe two people the whole time I was there. It was good for studying, but not good for fellowship, which means communication. In order to walk the walk, we all need people to fellowship with, to encourage and convict us when we need it.
We go to church to worship God, which can be done anywhere through prayer. To worship with others is important, too. But others are an important part of our armor of God, of the Holy Spirit. We need close relationships with others.
