What If I Tell & Nothing Happens?

What if you don’t tell, and more happens? The alternative to telling the truth is deafening.

What if you tell and someone says you are a liar? Tell anyway. You know the truth. You know your story.

What if I tell the truth and someone listens? Ah, that can be terrifying but you are on your path to freedom.

What if I tell the truth but I have no witness to the crimes? You have a witness in God. He saw and He holds those abusers accountable. Trust Him.

What if I don’t tell and someone else is hurt? We have an accountability to help those behind us once we are away and safe.

What if I don’t use my voice for good but use it to only release my anger? You will never heal this way.

God meant for our stories to be told. Secrecy is not from the throne of God. Falsehoods, deception, and turmoil arise from abuse. These are tools of Satan.

Tell your story. Your very life depends on it.
